Our trainee accounting technician will complete the AAT qualification, followed by the ACA/CA professional qualification with a view to becoming a qualified accountant.
You will have exciting development opportunities available where you can build your knowledge in many of the sectors in which we operate. You will work in a friendly and progressive environment, within teams of varying sizes. From early on you will be given responsibility, dealing with range of clients including private clients, individuals from the entertainment world, family estates or charities.
We use first-class tuition centres alongside our own internally developed technical training programmes to help you prepare for your examinations. This is supported by our dedicated training team who will monitor your progress throughout your studies. We expect our prospective trainees to have gained a thorough understanding of what the exams will involve, so please ensure that you have researched the professional qualification you are interested in pursuing thoroughly in order to convince us that you know what you’re letting yourself in for!
We seek people with initiative; people who are collaborative team workers, natural communicators and able problem-solvers. Above all, we seek people who are motivated by providing the highest level of client service.
Applicants must have at least 300 UCAS points (120 if using the new UCAS tariff), or equivalent, gained at one sitting. Plus excellent GSCE results with a minimum grade B in English and Maths.
