Joining MBS Accountants

At MBS Accountants we are fuelled by helping business owners to stop surviving and start thriving. We are also focused on the quality of life of our team and we support a healthy work-life balance.

We are looking for people who fit our values

  1. Do what you say – Nobody likes being let down and we think it’s key you don’t set unrealistic expectations. Seek to understand the importance of the task and any deadlines and agree realistic timescales and stick to them or communicate early regarding challenges.
  2. Open and honest – Being a closed book doesn’t help anyone. We don’t believe work and home are two different lives. Life is just life. By being open and honest about your whole life we can be empathetic to your circumstances and together we can work towards growth and positivity.
  3. Take responsibility – Work-life balance is key and fundamental we believe to living a healthy life. We have core hours but each role also has key outcomes and responsibilities. There will be occasions where flexibility may be needed in order to achieve those outcomes and responsibilities and taking responsibility to act accordingly is key.
  4. Team player – As a team we support and empower each other. There will be occasions where you will need to go outside of the standard scope of your role to help out a colleague. This shouldn’t be because we expect it but because you think it’s the right thing to do.
  5. Respect – Respect is everything. It should be a given. It should not come just because of somebodys position but simply because we are all human beings. Being able to be candid with someone about their weaknesses and mistakes when done with love is an absolute sign of respect.
