Audit Senior Berkshire, £34,000 - £45,000
Audit Senior required for this growing firm of Chartered Accountants. This is a client facing role so you will be based in the office but also be required to attend Audits at clients premises.
In addition to working on challenging high-profile clients, you will also gain exposure to pre-audit accounts preparation, accounts finalisation and ad hoc project work.
As the business continues to grow, they are able to consider applications from people who have either an Audit Senior or a Supervisor background.
