Partnership Opportunity

  • Business Services & Advisory Practice
  • Broadly Based Private Client Base
  • Future Partner Opportunity

Our Client is a larger sized provincial based chartered accounting firm based in Timaru. They have developed a profitable practice and built a record of success, by working closely with their clients, assisting them to grow and develop their businesses. This approach sees them being innovative and technologically driven, while working in partnership with clients in understanding and supporting their business objectives. 

Currently they are planning for the retirement of one of their Directors and so as part of their succession planning they are looking to identify a Senior Manager who can join the team. The plan will be for you to shadow the exiting Director, building relationships with the clients and over a period of time assuming a full client advisory role.

The key requirements are that you firstly need to be someone who in the short term can get up to speed and prove yourself capable of leading and delivering a full range of compliance accounting and business advisory services. You then need to be committed to growing your career and have a clear focus on wanting to be part of a well-established client advisory based chartered accounting practice.

We ideally see this role suiting a CA qualified Accountant who has already established themselves at a senior level in a business advisory services role, but possibly in a firm where there is limited scope for advancement. This role will offer that next step in your career, including the opportunity to step up to the level of Director and gain equity within the partnership.

Beyond the technical requirements we are then looking for candidates who are ambitious and proactive in developing their careers and who can demonstrate interpersonal skills in being able to manage client relationships; build referral networks and also take a lead in delivering client projects.

If this does sound like you or you would like to learn more about our client and the future partner opportunity, please contact Patrick Methven.
