Candidates for the role of Senior Management Accountant may either be qualified accountants (without any legal experience) or may be qualified by experience if they've worked in a legal / professional services firm - at least 5 years management accounting experience is, however, expected. Some staff management experience would be useful but a desire to get involved across the board, immerse yourself in the detail and improve processes where appropriate will be more relevant. The client would consider candidates with up to a month's notice period.
