Student Course Lecturer (Tax and General Practice)

We are looking for a Student Course Lecturer in the field of Tax and General Practice. Do you enjoy understanding and explaining detailed technical requirements impacting on an accountancy practice and putting them into a way that delegates can understand? This is the perfect role for you. This position is home based with occasional UK travel.

Why do we want you?

We want you because you are a Qualified Accountant or you have technical training experience and are looking for a move out of practice into something a bit different.

A bit about us.

Mercia Group is one of the leading providers of training and support services to the UK accountancy profession, working with over 8000 firms nationwide.

Main Purpose of Role

We are looking for an individual to provide high quality, technically accurate and practical training to firms of all sizes. This will be via online web meetings, at public venues and also at client’s premises.

This role is aimed at training junior team members within accountancy firms, so the successful applicant must be able to teach new concepts to a range of group sizes in a patient and engaging way.

The role will involve:

- Presenting student level courses on national face-to-face, online and in-house course programmes

- Keeping up to date with latest technical changes across a wide range of subjects

- Writing and developing technical yet practical course materials for use on face-to-face and online events.

- Influence over course content.

The role will be home based, unless there is a preference to work at one of the group’s offices when not at clients. However there is expected to be a considerable amount of UK travel.

There is also the opportunity to get involved in other areas of Mercia’s products and services (such as writing and file reviewing). So if you are interested in a varied role, please come and talk to us.
