Job Description

Do you want to earn while you learn, without incurring massive debts from going to university? Do you want a career that challenges you and gives you opportunities to develop and progress even after you’ve qualified? Look no further, as we’re looking to recruit two trainee accountants.

From day one you will be busy learning new skills and assisting with: bookkeeping activities; helping to prepare accounts; processing payroll; helping on audits; and preparing tax calculations. We give you lots of different work experience to help you decide what area you may want to specialise in, later in your career.

After passing your six month probationary period, we will register you for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England Wales (ICAEW) Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business qualification. Upon successful completion of this, we will offer you a three year training contract to support you during your professional exams to become a qualified Chartered Accountant.

We pay for all your training courses and exams and give you time off from work for study leave, we expect you to set aside your own time for private study as well. Our commitment to you extends long after you pass your exams as we continue to pay for you to attend training courses to help maintain and develop your skills and expertise.

Alongside your training you will receive lots of supervision and support from your line manager and fellow team workers. You will need to work as part of the team and will be expected to take on more responsibility as your skills and experience develop.

We can offer you a very varied role with a wide range of experience whilst you learn, pass your qualifications and develop your career.
