About us

At Azets we’re passionate about being different. Providing client delight is what motivates us all on a daily basis. We have some brilliant, ambitious and driven entrepreneurial clients, who need our advice on a range of matters. Our whole ethos is about building lasting relationships by getting to know our clients, understanding their aspirations and talking with them often so we can help them fulfil their business ambitions, whatever they may be.

We work out of the Azets office in Poole, within walking distance of Poole Harbour and a short distance from the award-winning Sandbanks beach. To give you a further idea of what makes us all tick at Azets, we want our employees to have a growth mind-set and we place a lot of importance of working together as one team. We don’t work in silos – we help each other as needed.

The role

Working closely with the Administration Manager, you will be an integral member of our team. As a support team member, your role is to support the fee-earning team to excel in their roles; to partner with them to provide client delight; to find efficiencies which saves them time and to complete the administrative aspects of their work and the general office duties to ensure it is as easy as possible for them to deliver accounting, tax and business advisory services to our clients.

This role is varied and busy - no two days will be the same! You will really want to get to know our business and understand what our fee-earning team do. We don’t expect you to be able to do what they do, but we expect you to be inquisitive about what they do and why they do it, so you can provide the best administrative support to them.

By the nature of it being a support role – your responsibilities may change over time as the needs of the business change. One minute you may be helping to engage a new client, you could be updating client records on our systems, you could be answering emails which come in to our admin in-box, or you might be helping with billing. Alternatively you could be meeting and greeting guests into the office, answering calls or completing some tasks which keep the office organised.
