You've got big plans. We have opportunities to match, and we're committed to empowering you to become a better you, no matter what you do.

When you join KPMG you'll be one of over 219,000 professionals providing audit, tax, advisory and business enablement services across 147 countries.

With the support to do things differently, grow personally and professionally and bring your whole self to work, there's no limit to the impact you can make. Let's do this.

The opportunity:

Are you a talented and proven leader who motivates teams and provides exceptional customer service?

KPMG's Enterprise Audit Practice helps clients manage risk so they can focus on their core businesses. By intimately understanding the client's business, we convert information into insights to uncover hidden opportunities to improve client efficiency and performance.

We have an opportunity for a Manager to take a leadership role in the Southwestern Ontario Enterprise practice with advancement opportunity available based on performance. As a Manager, you will be required to apply KPMG's accounting practices and methodologies on client's engagements, and to have the ability to manage relationships with the clients, practice leaders, and junior staff. This role will be leading a non-audit team.

What you will do

  • Detailed review of notice to reader working paper files, including unaudited financial statements and notes thereto.

  • Develop and maintain relationships with client management, acting as the primary relationship manager with certain clients.
  • Schedule a team of accountants with varying levels of experience to provide services to a wide variety of clients.
  • Coach, guide and mentor staff accountants.

At times, business needs arise and employees are required and agree to work beyond their normal work day or work week to fulfill the accountabilities required for their job. Likewise, people need time to devote to personal matters, and our approach to flexibility provides for this.

What you bring to the role

  • Strong knowledge of Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE) and Canadian corporate and personal tax; experience with HST and payroll preferred but not required.
  • Ability to work both independently, but also provide supervision and guidance in a team environment.
  • Demonstrated ability to leverage staff through effective delegation and reviewing of work.
  • Currently holding a Canadian CPA designation strongly preferred
  • At least five years of work experience in a professional accounting firm environment delivering quality service and value to clients.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Preferred but not required: knowledge of QuickBooks, Simply Accounting, etc. and other enterprise bookkeeping solutions.

Keys to Your Success
  • Excellent client service with an aptitude for understanding the clients' business, and maintaining strong relationships.
  • Dedication to achieving high standards of client service and professional conduct in the performance of duties.
  • Mentoring and developing team members through performance management.
