An exciting place to work

We work hard at Ton-Cyf. But we like to have fun too. Meeting fantastic clients and the odd Party, your social life will be just as busy as your work one.

Rare opportunity for a dynamic individual to join our specialist music artist accountancy practice in an autonomous role where you’ll be reporting directly to the partners and helping shape the future of this area of our business.

TON Chartered Accountants and Tax Advisors specialise in providing professional services to clients in the music, media and entertainment sectors. We cater for global music artists such as Kelis, Roni Size, Leona Lewis and Ry X, as well as supporting local based entertainers.
