Ammu, is an accountancy practice located in Scotland with offices in Glasgow and Ayr.  We are a team of Chartered Accountants, Chartered Management Accountants and Tax Specialists with a unique perspective on business.

Ammu was founded by Co-Director Jane Grant, mother of four, and Co-Director Simon Murrison father of two. Jane and Simon passionately believe in a work-life balance. That’s why Ammu has a fantastic culture and a flexible four-day week giving the team time flexibility and balance.  As digital accountancy practice, you will be given the right tools and systems you need to proactively support your clients and actively collaborate with your colleagues.

If you are looking for the elusive work-life balance, taken a career break, or supporting a family member, come and join our dynamic, friendly, and fast growing team. We can offer you 21 hours across 3 to 4 days, flexible holiday patterns all within a supportive and growing practice.

Who we’re looking for
