Audit Senior

 Location: Edinburgh
 Salary: £34-40,000 + Excellent Benefits
 Job type: Permanent
 Closes: closed

This Audit Senior job in Edinburgh is a great opportunity for a newly qualified accountant with good audit experience, to join one of the best teams in Scotland.  As Audit Senior, you will work as part of an audit team, taking responsibility for running the audit, working directly with the client under manager supervision.  The Audit Senior manages the audit team and supervises the audit process to ensure audits are of high quality and add real value to the client.  The firm has one of the most diverse client bases in the country - offering a real blend of interesting, challenging and innovative work.


As Audit Senior, you will assist in the planning, execution and finalisation of all areas of the audit assignment for manager or partner review, seeking input for areas of concern and judgement.  A predominant amount of time will be spent off-site at clients’ premises, allowing you to build on your stakeholder management skills, and offering excellent exposure to Finance Directors and other senior individuals.  The Audit Senior will identify risk matters and raise these with a manager and/or partner, while exercising judgement within agreed parameters.  You'll also identify and understand client needs, suggest potential solutions on technical matters and communicate and agree client needs and potential solutions with managers.  


To be successful, it is anticipated that you will be a fully qualified accountant (CA/ACA/ACCA or overseas equivalent) with a working knowledge of IFRS, UKGAAP and Financial Reporting Requirements.  You'll be experienced in the supervising and coaching of junior members of staff and be comfortable liaising directly with clients both on and off-site.  Experience of listed clients and international groups would be extremely beneficial but is by no means essential.  A willingness to work hard and deliver an excellent audit is of far greater importance.


If you're looking to "fast track" your career with a highly reputable firm, you'd do well to consider this Audit Senior vacancy.
