HW Fisher is a top 25 UK chartered accountancy firm. We are a commercially astute organisation with a personal, partner-led service aimed at entrepreneurial small and medium enterprises (SMEs), large corporates and high-net worth individuals.
Our clients come from many different backgrounds and are active in all branches of commerce and industry. Our reputation is grounded in quality, delivering premium advisory services efficiently and cost-effectively.
Founded in 1933, the practice comprises 28 partners and approximately 300 staff supplying a range of services spanning audit, corporate taxation, private client services, VAT and forensic accounting, together with a range of sector groups offering specialist industry knowledge.
The Forensic Department comprises of 2 Partners, a Director and a sizeable team.
The role will involve carrying out a portfolio of Contract Compliance & Commercial Assurance audits across a variety of industries, helping maximise the benefits gained from the relationships our clients have with their business partners and suppliers.
A typical engagement will involve you:
Working with HW Fisher involves a mixture of working in the office, client sites and visiting third parties’ premises, which provides variety and a well-rounded mix of work environments. The role will involve significant travel across the world, including Europe and the USA, and possibly the Far East and Central and South America.
Some experience of auditing is required (such as statutory company audits, compliance audits, tax, dispute analysis and/or fraud investigations).
The candidate should ideally be fluent in Polish, although we will consider candidates who have a fluency in an alternative language.
As well as working as part of a team, some of the audits will be carried out alone, so the candidate must be confident to travel and meet new people in unfamiliar countries. The candidate must be able to think on his/her feet and adapt to new situations.
The candidate must be self-motivated and well organised, as much work will be carried out unsupervised, and there will be numerous live audits at a time – therefore they must be good at multi-tasking and working under deadline pressure.
Good communication skills are essential (face-to-face, telephone and written). Strong Microsoft Excel skills and experience of report writing would be an advantage.
No minimum qualifications are required but we envisage the role would suit a qualified ACA/ACCA. Candidates with a law, business consulting and/or procurement background would also find their experience to date suitable and transferable for the requirements of this role.
