“But there’s no room to grow in a small firm like this”


Warren Maris
Magnus Business Advisers

It’s true – you’ll never make Senior Partner. Because there is no senior partner position. Probably never will be.

But if it’s progress you desire, just know you won’t be Senior Accountant forever either.

We offer career options that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. 

If you think growth is all about job titles, and you’re willing to hop jobs till you land the title you want – then Magnus probably isn’t right for you.

But if you believe there’s more than one way to grow, that you can forge your own path without needing to explain yourself to anyone – then ask me about your career options in the interview. 

Ask me, “where could I be in 3-5 years, Warren?”
