We are looking for an ambitious Director to join our expanding Bristol and Bath Corporate and Business Services team. This role can be based from either our Bristol or Bath office.

This role presents an excellent opportunity for a Director who is looking to play a pivotal role within a forward-thinking business. Alternatively, you may be an accomplished Senior Manager who is looking to make the step up to Director level.

Our Business  

Recognised as a 2019 Sunday Times 100 Best Company to work for, and recently described by a judge “as one of the best businesses that he has ever judged”, Bishop Fleming’s core values are built around providing our staff with a great environment to work in and giving our clients an outstanding level of service.

Our focus towards employee wellbeing will ensure that you maintain a healthy work-life balance whilst being part of an expanding business that is demonstrating excellent year on year growth with over 350 staff based across 7 offices.

The Role

Working closely with Head of Corporate and Business Services, you will look to grow our portfolio of clients and will seek to add value to our existing clients but introducing additional services that we can offer.

Day to day responsibilities will include:

  • Managing and developing our Bristol and Bath Business Services team – this will include recruiting team members, conducting PDR’s and coaching our people so that they can reach their potential
  • Building strong relationships with our owner-managed business clients and ensure that we continue to offer a quality trusted advisor service
  • Monitor developments in the accounting marketplace to help retain competitiveness and efficiency of service provision
  • Build/retain a good network of local contacts to aid business development

What we are looking for

To be considered for the role, you will need to be: 

  • ACA/ACCA qualified (or equivalent) with at least 5 years PQE working within a corporate and business services environment
  • A strong business developer who is keen to build contacts and network within the local business community
  • A great people manager who enjoys developing and coaching their teams
  • Highly commercial with the drive to contribute towards Bishop Fleming’s growth

There is scope to mould this role to the experience and motivations of the appointed candidate.

Please contact Ben Carter; Resourcing Manager or Roger Pimblett; Partner and Head of Corporate and Business Services if you would like to discuss this opportunity further.


We recognise the importance of offering our employees flexibility in how they work.  This may include working from home some of the time or flexible working arrangements such as part time working to accommodate parent and carer responsibilities, further studies and hobbies.

We are a responsible employer - committed to welcoming new people into an inclusive working environment, where everyone is given equal opportunity to reach their full potential.

Our ‘One Business’ approach aims to provide a culture where our people are valued and treated fairly with respect, but also one where our differences are understood and celebrated.

We hope that these objectives will attract you to our firm as an employer of choice.
