This busy general accountancy practice and trust and corporate service provider, based in the Isle of Man, is looking for a Assistant Manager to join its team.  

An AM is responsible for overseeing all matters relating to clients that are assigned to them. This will include a variety of engagements from both our general accountancy practice and corporate service provider.   This will include the preparation and audit of accounts and schedules, and the preparation of financial statements. This role involves administration of companies which will vary greatly between clients. Preparation and checking of taxation and VAT returns and assessments will also form part of this role and the AM is expected to ensure returns are dealt with and filed in a timely manner.

Communication between the AM, the Manager and the Partner is key so the AM is expected to ensure they are kept aware and consulted on all pertinent client matters. 

The AM will review work, and will organise and co-ordinate the assignment of work for junior staff.  This will include assisting, supervising and training junior members of the team.  The AM will also be involved in conducting appraisals, training sessions and attending management meetings.

Each AM is responsible for ensuring that their clients adhere to the firms’ compliance procedures and so they can expect to liaise with the Compliance team to ensure appropriate due diligence and know your client forms are held.

This position gives an excellent opportunity to grow with our expanding firm and advance their career.

The right candidate will be;

  • Newly qualified to two years post-qualified experience - CA or ACCA.
  • An excellent communicator with strong organisational skills who is able to lead more junior members of staff.  Discretion, diplomacy and a confident approach are a must.
  • Looking for a broad experience covering all aspects of general accountancy and the provision of corporate services.
  • Experienced in audit.  Whilst this is not an exclusively audit role and will cover all aspects of general practice, prior audit experience is preferred.

This position gives an excellent opportunity to grow with our expanding firm and advance their career.
