BGM is an independent 10 Partner central London based medium sized accountancy firm established in 1934.

BGM is looking for graduates who wish to study for their ACA and CTA together with a structured training programme. Graduates need to be motivated, analytical with an attention to detail, and logical thinkers helping our clients achieve their goals and objectives. Being a strong team player is critical, with the ability to adapt to changing requirements or deadlines in support of our client’s goals.

Your role will be diverse, including:

  • Being exposed to a broad range of business sectors including property and construction, insurance, logistics, media and entertainment, professional practices, manufacturing and charities, from owner managed start ups to multi national groups.
  • Preparing corporation tax returns and tax disclosures for financial statements.
  • Assisting with compliance matters ranging from those for large companies and groups such as corporate interest restriction rules, transfer pricing, CbC rules, etc, to those applicable for many of the firm’s clients such as R&D, Capital Allowance claims and property transactions.
  • Exposure to EIS/SEIS applications and administration, share scheme support and Non-Resident landlord returns for offshore companies.  As well as its compliance role the team works on a varied range of advisory projects for its corporate client base, covering matters such as reorganisations, demergers, transfer pricing, financing, cross border transactions.

We make a significant investment in the recruitment of staff and require them to possess excellent attributes. All our graduate recruits enter into a joint ACA/CTA training contract leading to membership of ICAEW and CTA, and we require them to have a high standard of academic achievement in any recognised discipline – as a minimum a 2.1 Honours Degree. At all levels problem-solving skills, an ability to communicate clearly and to work well with people are vital. Enthusiasm and a willingness to take responsibility are also essential attributes.

Our students enter an apprenticeship programme and receive training for their professional examinations with study leave, tuition fees and examination fees paid by the firm.

We also provide internal courses to ensure that our staff members satisfy the CPD requirements of the ICAEW. Professional staff are also encouraged to attend external courses to supplement the firm’s internal training. All staff are trained in general business skills so that they can understand and appreciate the business objectives across a diverse and demanding client base that is shared by very few firms of our size.

Our objective is to ensure that our students pass their examinations at the first attempt. Our successful training approach has led to several of our students being prizewinners in their professional examinations in previous years.

We offer a competitive London salary and benefits package which is regularly reviewed, have a strong social culture and encourage a healthy work/life balance which includes hybrid working.

We actively encourage progression within the practice with a number of our Partners having trained with us.

Graduates receive 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays).
