Good at auditing - we need you!!
Collenette Jones is a general practice accountancy firm – but have a quick look at our website and (we hope) you’ll see that we offer Everything* our clients need, all under one roof. We think that’s what sets us apart from our competitors – we are general practice accountants and tax advisors, and we are just as comfortable helping with book-keeping as we are carrying out an audit or giving advice on a business valuation, sale or purchase. Not only that, but our regulated subsidiary – Crossways Trustees – means that we’re able to form companies and provide corporate services, as well as acting as Trustee of a pension fund (or discretionary trust). It’s fair to say our work is varied and no two days are ever the same.
We are a relatively small team – three directors and a consultant (who between them own the business), eight professionally qualified accountants, and a number of other staff with accounting technician and / or book-keeping qualifications, a Trust team of four and our invaluable support staff – around 24 people in total. We work hard for our clients but we all have families and don’t believe in a culture of long hours – we aim to be a business that people are happy to work for, and the majority of our staff have been with us for many years.
About the Role
Our client base is very varied and, from an audit perspective, comprises a number of regulated trust companies, fund administrators, captive insurance companies, local trading and asset holding vehicles. The successful candidate should have experience of working across these industries, and will work on a variety of our audit clients throughout the year. We would expect you to be able to look after the audit from planning to completion, liaising with our clients at all stages of the audit to ensure the smooth completion of each engagement. There may be additional opportunities for the right candidate to expand their skill base, take on accounts preparation or tax engagements and progress within the firm.
Our ideal candidate is a professionally qualified (ACA, ACCA or equivalent) accountant with one to three years’ post-qualified experience and will be independent minded, organised and be able to prioritise and manage your own workload. You might be looking to work with a different type of client (we’re less financially-services orientated than many of the larger audit firms), or you might be looking for the work-life balance that a smaller family-friendly firm can offer, having worked for a larger organisation.
If you like the sound of the position and would like to apply, please write to Gareth Nicolle, Director, at Crossways Centre, Braye Road, Vale, Guernsey, GY3 5PH – or email: firstname.lastname@example.org – enclosing your CV and a covering letter.
* That’s what we offer our clients: Everything* as standard
