OVERVIEW OF THE SERVICE LINE

Our Accounting and Outsourcing team works to support our clients to better run their finance functions, understand their financial position and performance, and to ensure they are compliant with changing accounting and tax legislation. With the relentless pace of technology change you will need to be able to advise clients in areas such as process and digitalisation, business performance and financial reporting, while building enduring relationships that positions Mazars as a trusted adviser. Our successful team of more than 250 professionals is growing across all areas including cloud accounting, payroll, financial reporting and company secretarial. 

JOB PURPOSE

The role of an accountant is to ensure accurate and timely preparation of statutory financial statements and tax compliance for a range of UK and international clients. You will be the point of contact for your portfolio of clients, providing high quality advice on their year-end compliance process and work with other teams to deliver an excellent client experience. 

During your first two years you will:

  • Learn how to use accounting software and systems in order to prepare financial statements for clients’ year end requirements;
  • Develop an understanding of financial statements and the nature of the clients’ business;
  • Co-ordinate with tax, payroll and audit hub to deliver client information as a whole; and
  • IXBRL tagging. 

During your third year you will:

  • Manage your own client portfolio;
  • Self-review your own-work, ensuring minimal review points are raised by managers;
  • Have confident knowledge of accounting standards which you apply to a given set of year end financials; and
  • Carry out the tax computation for simpler clients.

In your final year you will be expected to be able to take responsibility for the junior members of your team. You will train them and review their work.
