Training at Goodman Jones
You will join as a trainee Chartered Accountant within our audit team. When you start your training, you will have the opportunity to work as part of a team on a wide variety of clients. This will involve work in accounting, auditing, and corporate tax. You will gain strong skills in all of these key areas, supported by further experience on one-off assignments and special projects.
No function receives more care and attention than the selection and training of our graduate intake to ensure that not only do you qualify, but also that you develop as an individual into a well-rounded and assured professional.
Every applicant chosen to become one of our trainees is selected on the basis that they have the attributes we believe are required to progress to a very senior level at Goodman Jones. Indeed, many of our current managers and partners trained at Goodman Jones.
What we look for
We look for students with strong academic results, as a guide a 2.1 degree and 320+ UCAS points. However, we consider the ‘whole person’ in making our selection and may consider candidates outside of the guide requirements if they are exceptional in other aspects – we believe enthusiasm, the ability to communicate and mix with people, and a determination to succeed, are all of equal importance so that you develop into a skilled, well-rounded, and assured professional.
As a Central London firm of Chartered Accountants, we provide a comprehensive training programme, combining a wide variety of technical work experience with personal and professional development.
