Bright Grahame Murray (‘BGM’) is a central London based medium sized accountancy firm established in 1934.
Bright Grahame Murray’s aim is to help clients make the most of the opportunities available to them. The comprehensive range of services we provide is underpinned by a 10 partner led service and a reputation for excellence and client care. We work in a number of business sectors including property and construction, insurance, logistics, media and entertainment, professional practices, manufacturing and charities.
We make a significant investment in the recruitment of staff and require them to possess excellent attributes. All our graduate recruits enter into an ACA training contract leading to membership of ICAEW, 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 at Bright Grahame Murray 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.
New ACA students usually join us in either January or August. We offer a competitive starting salary and benefits package which, in the case of our ACA students is reviewed every six months. Increases are awarded based on work and exam performance.
