The Firm:

HW Fisher LLP is a top 30 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, Not for Profit organisations 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 Department:

The Private Client Tax department comprises 30 specialist staff and is headed by 6 Partners and 3 Directors.

There will also be interaction with the other partners of the Firm.

The Candidate:

We are looking for a candidate who has a proven track record in the above areas and has the required technical knowledge to be able to assist the department successfully. The position offers the right candidate an excellent opportunity to demonstrate their technical skills over the department’s exceptionally diverse and interesting client base.
