We’re not the only firm of chartered accountants and tax advisers in this guide who are offering graduates and school leavers exciting opportunities to work with clients across a range of sectors during training.
So who are we and why should you choose BKL?
We like having bright, hard-working trainees working with us. ‘High challenge, high support’ is the balance we aim for.
From tech startups to property companies over 100 years old, our clients are forward-thinking and ambitious: something we also aspire to. In 2019 we became the first mid-sized accounting firm in the country to accept a cryptocurrency as fee payment. We want our staff to be innovative too, ready to explore fresh ideas.
We treat wellbeing as more than just a business buzzword to be ticked off a list: we encourage each other to be open and share experiences of mental health. And we’re working with Inclusive Employers to make sure that whatever your background when you join us, you feel a sense of belonging and a desire to get involved in the life of BKL. This is one area where, from your first day, we can learn from you.
Even before you qualify, you can look forward to progression: not just in the money you earn but in the recognition you earn. We’ll help you develop as a professional and as a person. Two of BKL’s partners joined as trainees – one from university, one from school – and we know they won’t be the last.
You’ll get to enjoy our recently refurbished office, complete with a balcony and some very popular coffee machines. And because we’re based in north London with a well established commitment to flexible working, you won’t have to worry about a typical commute into the City or central London.
We want individuals who take pride in showing drive, curiosity and commitment. If you’re ready to put in the effort, we’re ready to work with you.
