Become a Chartered Accountant with a Degree in any Discipline

At SWAT UK, we recruit for a range of prestigious firms of Chartered Accountants based in London and the South East – meaning you’re not just applying to one firm, you’re applying to many.

The firms for which we recruit service large client bases covering a wide range of industry sectors, including not-for-profit, media, entertainment and professional services, to name but a few.

The firms we recruit for range from 4-19 partners in size, meaning there is huge scope for you to progress within the firm. What’s more, there are huge advantages of working with a medium-sized firm; you’ll gain exposure from working with a wide variety of clients, enjoy real responsibility from an early stage and have opportunities to work closely with the firm’s partners. Indeed, many graduates who have come through our programme have gone onto become partners themselves. 

The Firms We Recruit For

At SWAT UK, we offer graduate positions in a range of Chartered Accountancy firms, based in London and the South East, meaning you’re not just applying to one firm, you’re applying to many, including:
