Although applications are accepted throughout the year, we recruit for two annual intakes with successful candidates commencing their contract during August/September and January. We are now accepting applications for our 2022 intake. 

Please apply now if you wish to be considered for a position.

What We Seek

We are looking for students who have the ambition and drive to succeed as qualified accountants and who have the personality to gain credibility early on with clients, partners and staff.

Whilst those that we recruit are, almost invariably, university graduates, we may consider applications from exceptionally able post A-Level candidates.

As a graduate applicant you should have, as a minimum:

  • 2:2 degree or above in ANY discipline
  • GCSE English Language, grade C or above (or equivalent) and GCSE Maths, grade B or above (or equivalent)
  • A minimum of 120 UCAS points or equivalents, from your top three grades (AS levels and General Studies are not accepted)

Post A-Level candidates should, in the absence of a degree, have achieved a minimum of 120 UCAS points.

What You Can Expect

Practical Experience

To start with, you will become part of an audit team. Accompanied and mentored by experienced colleagues, through the audit process you will progressively learn the key skills, ‘hands on’. As your experience, confidence and competency increases, you will be given higher degrees of responsibility for your assignments - until ultimately you are entrusted to undertake a full audit.

Training Programmes

In addition to gaining ‘on-the-job’ experience, you will be given formal training to become professionally qualified. There are a number of routes open to you through which you can train - each suiting different learning styles.

Our graduate trainees study for the Association of Chartered Accountants [ACA] qualification awarded by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales [ICAEW].

Post A-Level trainees will study first for the Association of Accounting Technicians [AAT] qualification, after which they may progress to study for either of the ACA or ACCA qualifications.
