Work type:

An experienced BAS Accountant you enjoy seeing what the numbers reveal and helping clients see the big picture. Thrive working part-time with a small, prospering, established accounting practice based in Botany that values a personal service for clients and flexibility for its employees.

Enjoy working 20-25 hours per week with flexibility around hours for family or school events. A typical week will see you lifting the load for the Director and Practice Manager, reviewing files, providing mentorship to the less experienced Accountants, and dealing with client queries.

  • Naturally you have a solid background in CA firms but more importantly to really thrive in the role you’ll have the following attributes:
  • An instinctive feel for accounting and the story behind the numbers
  • A desire to go beyond basic checks and balances and understand that there is always something to be reviewed
  • Whilst you are detail orientated you don’t get bogged down in the details, keeping the bigger picture in mind
  • A natural affinity for understanding clients wants and needs and perhaps coaching clients on Xero use in the future
  • Empathetic, taking real pleasure in assisting clients to get their financial affairs on track and seeing a positive change in their lives
  • Service focused, you have a sense of urgency to respond to clients, and leave them feeling that you really care
  • Knowledgeable with current tax and compliance law
  • Experienced at reviewing client files and mentoring or supervising junior staff to support those clients but having your own clients as well
  • Familiarity with both Xero, and MYOB and ideally CCH iFirm
  • You don’t need to be CA qualified, but this would be advantageous
  • Appreciate working in a close-knit team of 6 and receiving ongoing training
