If we inspire you to do the work you love, will you still call it work?  


At EY we believe that whoever you are, your uniqueness helps us stand apart. 

We bring together extraordinary people, like you, to build a better working world. 


What’s in it for you? 

The quality of our Accounting Compliance and Reporting Team and the work we do has attracted increased demand for our services and our team is growing quickly. We are looking for an experienced financial reporting specialist to become an integrated part of our team, including high quality Managers with 4+ years professional services or industry experience. 


The key responsibilities of the Managers in our team include: 

  • Working as part of our integrated leadership team in owning and coordinating the provision of statutory reporting services to an allocated book of corporate clients on a day-to-day basis. 

  • Oversight and supervision of the statutory reporting services we provide, including the co-ordination of client and auditor stakeholders. 

  • Management and delivery of the full spectrum of corporate financial reporting services based on where our clients’ needs take us with full support from some of Australia’s best Financial Accounting and Advisory and Tax technicians. 

  • Building networks and meaningful connections internally and externally to stay abreast of issues and build a pipeline of future opportunities. 

  • Supervision of our team members and support for their career development. 

  • Acting as the allocated ‘Counsellor’ for up to two of our team members. 

  • Contributing to a positive team culture that promotes high performance, strong collaboration and teaming, and celebrates successes. 


Skills and Attributes for Success 

Here’s our ‘wish list’ but don’t worry if you don’t tick all the boxes. We’re interested in your strengths, what you want to learn, and how far you want to go: 

  • Detailed knowledge of, and experience with, Australian Accounting Standards gained through working in a professional services firm or in a comparable industry role. 

  • Willingness and ability to work collaboratively in a dynamic team environment. 

  • Experience in managing remote teams, both within Australia and overseas. 

  • Strong communication skills with a confidence to lead discussions with clients in relation to both technical matters and in the coordination of engagements. 

  • Demonstrate a high level of accuracy with first-class prioritisation and organisational skills. 

  • A proactive approach with the ability to work under pressure and adhere to reporting deadlines. 

  • A flair for identifying risk and driving continuous improvements and automation. 

  • CA qualification or equivalent completed. 

  • Technical knowledge of IFRS is essential, and knowledge of another CAAP (e.g. US GAAP) is an advantage (but not essential). 

  • Audit experience at a Big 4 or mid-tier Firm will also be an advantage.
