Become our Senior Manager.

Our Mission

At Sedulo we are building a world class team to deliver our mission to make positive change in the communities we work in. We do this by:

  • Working with our clients to transform their business and personal finances
  • Connecting and contributing to the business community in the cities we are located in
  • Working with charities by volunteering, fundraising and influencing change both now and in the future through the Sedulo Foundation
  • Being a great place to work and develop your career

The Role

We are looking for a strong senior manager with a practice background, which includes audit and compliance experience. You will work closely alongside another senior manager to manage the entire London portfolio of clients and a team of ten staff in audit, compliance and management accounts roles.

As well as managing a portfolio of compliance clients and your team, the role will also involve special advisory work. This will include providing interim FC/FD services to new clients, to assist with their companies journey and growth, using the expertise from our wider group services where necessary.

The successful applicant will have the autonomy to shape their own career within a tight-knit, non-traditional, start-up type environment, but with the support and guidance of the wider High Growth and Compliance teams of a top 50 firm.

You will relish the opportunity to deliver a world class service to a varied portfolio of clients including high profile/household name sportspeople, musicians and actors as well as clients from hospitality, fashion and creative industries. You will enjoy acting as a mentor and coach to a small, dedicated team of trainees, semi-seniors and newly qualified staff.
