Who We Are
Barnes Roffe is an independent firm of Chartered Accountants and business advisors. We have been providing audit and assurance, consulting, financial advisory, risk management and tax services to owner managers and corporates since 1899. We are one of the UK top 40 accountancy firms, and our 22 partners and over 160 employees are all committed to delivering outstanding value to our clients.
Our graduate accountant training scheme is designed with the specific purpose of giving you the best of both worlds: fast access to first class learning and the consideration to allow you to focus on what’s important – your studies, whilst at the same time providing you with great practical and client experience.
We want to free you from the excessive burdens that can accompany some graduate training schemes and offer you the means to successfully pass your exams first time. Our trainees receive support throughout the training programme and beyond. At the end of the three year programme, our trainees are experienced Accountants with exceptional audit, accounting and tax knowledge and skills.
What Makes Us Different
Barnes Roffe is a medium-sized firm and that means you are a right size fish in the right size pond. The Partners and Managers know who you are, they are interested in you and your progression within the firm. Successes are recognised and responsibility is given early on meaning you can develop your knowledge and skills as an Accountant at a much faster pace. We are a team, we work together, we help each other, we train each other, we share knowledge with each other and we get the job done together.
What We Are Looking For
Ambitious, hard-working and driven individuals who can communicate with colleagues and more importantly our clients. These are all qualities held by a Barnes Roffe accountancy trainee.
Development And Career Progression
More than half our current partners began their journey as graduate trainee accountants within our firm. Working their way up from assistant to senior to manager to become either an audit or tax partner. For most of them, this has been achieved within 10 years of joining the firm.
