This is a senior full-time role in the corporate department based in Goole, reporting directly to a partner. The work primarily involves the delivery of a wide range of timely, high quality accounts, audit and tax compliance assignments for clients with turnover ranging from £1million to £100 million.
Whilst the focus is on compliance, there are also many opportunities to significantly expand the range and breadth of experience through direct engagement with clients, attending meetings, adhoc projects and working as part of a team to deliver proactive service.
