Wellington . Porirua . Kapiti Coast  Full time

Team Leader/Senior Accountant

At RightWay, we’re about you, and our clients are at the heart of what we do.

We’re large enough to provide you with opportunities for growth but small enough to get to know you and understand what you really need in order to live your best life.

While our team is New Zealand-wide and offers flexible working solutions, including being able to work remotely (as we are cloud-based) or from our offices, we’re a tight bunch and our engagement with one another is high. 

Fit is really important to us – you’ll love working for us because of who we are and what we do, and we’ll love having you on board. We are evolving as a business, so you’ll be excited by the prospect of continuous improvement (and dare we say it, ‘change’). We encourage out-of-the-box thinking and inquisitiveness, and we embrace our collective genius because each of us has valuable life and business experiences to offer.

What are the nuts and bolts of this role?

First and foremost, your personality is dynamic, so you’ll naturally forge brilliant relationships with our clients as well as your extended team. You will be comfortable leading a small team, nurturing their capability and overseeing their workflow, so they can shine as individuals as well as collectively. You will display excellent technical and commercial acumen through tax planning, cashflows, budgeting and other advisory work. Monthly and quarterly management reporting for key clients will be a key part of your work, and finally, preparation of year-end financial statements and tax returns. Internally, you will be a valued extension of your local Business Partner, as well as highly respected by your colleagues. You’ll also understand what it’s like to work in a CA firm.

You might be in a holding pattern where you are, sitting tight for the right opportunity. Perhaps balancing work and home life is not so, well, balanced? Maybe you’d love more client contact but the right role has yet to present itself? Does the thought of overseeing workflow and contributing to your local team and Business Partner’s success whet your appetite for a new beginning? If you are looking for the next step in your career and would love to be part of RightWay’s collective genius, we would love to hear from you.

We are moving to a shared working space in Porirua from April, so the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work from home until then, before enjoying our ‘hybrid’ way of flexible working.
