BAS Manager


Providing accountancy and business advisory services in Christchurch companies for more than 100 years, Markhams Christchurch joined Moore Stephens International to become Moore Stephens Markhams.

Now part of a global network of more than 300 independent firms, with 624 offices in over 100 countries, Moore Stephens Markhams Christchurch benefits from an international reach while retaining its Canterbury identity.

This is no faceless accountancy firm; the team at Moore Stephens Markhams Christchurch includes triathletes, cyclists and race car drivers (if you’ve caught any of the familiar Carters Tyres SI South Island 3 Hour Endurance Series, you’ll be familiar with DTOW racing and the DTOW V8 Super Tourer driven by two of the Moore Stephens Markhams Christchurch directors).
If you’re not an athlete, don’t worry – this is not a prerequisite! The team also enjoys relaxing over a drink and other social club activities.

Moore Stephens Markhams Christchurch is looking for a Manager with experience in a chartered accounting firm preferably in New Zealand.

With a premises in Christchurch’s new “it” district, Lincoln Road, Moore Stephens Markhams Christchurch offers an exciting opportunity for a talented manager to grow with an adaptable, proactive and innovative local firm.

The successful candidate will be responsible for leading a developing accounting team. You’ll work closely with your director and clients, reviewing others’ work to ensure exceptionally high quality standards, working collaboratively with the management team to ensure workflow and billing targets are achieved, and working on special client projects in consultation with directors.

We are seeking an individual with strong leadership, technical accounting and taxation skills, and a commitment to bringing out the best in the team you manage.

You’ll need to really understand the business environment and how to communicate with business people.

If you can say ‘yes’ to all the above, and you enjoy working closely with a director and a supportive management team but you’re also seeking some project-based challenges of your own, then we need to talk to you.

Like the idea of working with progressive and dynamic business thinkers in an energetic advisory firm?
