Quotes from current Supervisors:

“Challenging position requiring attention to detail, methodical approach to problem solving and ability to work on own initiative.”

“You will be managing a team of bookkeepers ensuring timely quality of output and training as required.”

“You will need to be confident, able to work with personnel at all levels, and pro-active with both personnel and problem solving.”

“You will be well supported by colleagues and have flexibility in your working hours.”

“Great variety of work / clients & BC staff.”

“No two working weeks are the same.”

“Supportive work environment – usually somebody somewhere can help, from a bk / technical issue to a staff issue, other staff happy to advise if needed & not their client.”

“Balance of working at home / onsite varies, depending on current client work.”

“Very satisfying to get a new client into shape, working through their nuances to achieve a tidy month end checklist for the Accountant to review, it sometimes takes a few month ends to achieve this.”

“Regular, more complicated work on clients each month, where this is required, is great to do.”

“BC Procedures and articles are great point of reference.”

“Everyone following the same Xero / Sage ME checklist, it makes it easier to handover work to staff.”
