Senior Audit Associate/Supervisor

We are looking for a Senior Audit Associate/Supervisor for our Corporate Assurance team to provide exceptional accounting and auditing services to our clients and to support the wider team.

In this role, you will assist the managers with delivering audit assignments and provide exceptional services to our clients.

We are a rapidly growing and ambitious assurance practice of 6 partners supported by a 60 strong team situated in St Paul’s in the City of London. We work with a wide range of privately owned businesses across a variety of sectors including financial services, real estate, retail, manufacturing, professional practices and technology and media.  Our clients vary from entrepreneurial start-ups to large international groups with several of our larger clients having turnover and/or assets of more than £200m. We do not currently audit any listed companies.

The assurance team is dedicated to delivering exceptional service and is committed to providing all our people with regular and valuable training to support their development. As a true meritocracy, we have an excellent track record of providing people with opportunities to progress their careers and promoting to manager and partner levels within the firm.

Our low staff turnover is testament to the way of life within the team and the firm and the emphasis we place on supporting our team’s work-life balance. We recognise the value and importance of in-person working both within our own teams and with our clients, be that in the office or at client sites. This facilitates efficient working through development of key skills and building relationships within assurance and with other service lines such as tax and advisory. Our approach to working and strong sense of team identity creates a unique culture and differentiates us from other audit firms in London. We believe it is equally important to focus on life outside of the office so we have regular team events that our people can benefit from. This makes Buzzacott the standout choice for people who are looking for a new challenge, rapid career advancement and who want to enjoy what they do. 

Key aspects of the role include:

  • Supervising the audit assignment and developing strong relationships with the client, with the expectation that you will resolve audit issues prior to manager review, review junior work and provide feedback.
  • Preparing accounts, including consolidated accounts, using CaseWare under UK GAAP or IFRS.
  • Communicating complex or contentious issues with the manager and partner, using judgement to identify when matters require escalation. 
  • Running training sessions for junior members of the team throughout the year and providing the manager team with innovative adaptations to audit methodologies to improve efficiencies.  
  • Carrying out the planning, fieldwork and completion of the audit (statutory and CASS audits) in accordance with auditing standards and the firm’s own approach and methodology.

You are the right person for the role if you:

  • Are ACA qualified 
  • Have a strong audit bias with experience of UK GAAP and IFRS
  • Have experience of working on group audits and liaising with group and/or component auditors 
  • Have experience leading an audit team of two or more people
