Investigo are currently partnered with a well known Accountancy Practice who are looking to hire a Audit Senior for their London based Business Advisory team.

  • Identifying and communicating accounting and auditing matters to managers;
  • Conducting assigned audit engagements successfully from beginning to end;

Although the job holder will be formally assigned to the Business Advisory Group, all audit seniors and trainee chartered accountants, within the London office, belong to a central resource called the London staff pool.

The operation of a staff pool ensures the continuous development of high quality, flexible, generalist skills in these two London groups. In addition, it also creates increased opportunities for staff to develop and improve their profile within the firm, as well as giving senior staff and Partners the exposure to the full range of resources available to them. Staff can progress from the pool into a variety of more senior positions within the firm.

There is also the opportunity to work on one-off projects, particularly within our corporate finance department.
