About you

Our competencies – what we look for in our people & why

Intelligent
Intelligence can be measured in many ways, but to become a successful accountant with us, we expect you to be able to demonstrate the ability to learn and apply knowledge and logic.

Collaborative
Just as working autonomously is important, so is being collaborative. Team working and shared aspirations allow for a cohesive and successful work place.
Analytical
Spotting patterns, anomalies and understanding data and how to use it to benefit a business is a key skill for a great accountant.

Professional
We pride ourselves in being approachable, professional and knowledgeable. We also expect respectful behaviour internally amongst peers and colleagues.

Committed
We believe in two-way commitment; we will support you if you support us. This results in trusted and happy staff, willing to go the extra mile and knowing that the firm appreciate them and reward their commitment.

Commercial
Simply put, this is how you use your time to generate profit, how you identify opportunities for profit and how you apply this to the business.

Autonomous
We all need team support, but the ability to work autonomously is important to us as it means we know you have confidence in your own expertise and work.
