They also have a commitment to the local community and have a number of sustainability initiatives to become involved with.

As Client Manager you will be responsible for leading a small team with ownership of a portfolio of clients. Clients range up to five million across a range of industries. You will have direct contact with your client for all their accounting affairs including year end meetings. Your team will be there to support with work, for you to review as well as completing the more complex aspects yourself.
