We provide another alternative to university which allows you to develop a professional career and gain valuable hands on experience whilst studying for accountancy qualifications. We have vacancies within our Audit teams nationally.

A big part of our job is helping people be comfortable with numbers. We help our clients to understand their finances and to get the best out of them, whether that’s for now or for the future.

It’s not just about putting numbers into a spreadsheet. It’s about understanding and communicating detailed financial information in an easy to understand way. Chartered accountants are talented and determined people who use their skills in the same way as lawyers, engineers or architects to find the best solution for their clients.

Is it for me?
If you enjoy working as part of a team, can communicate clearly, are curious about how businesses work and are comfortable with numbers (although being a maths genius is not necessary), then a career at Baker Tilly is waiting for you.

What is the Accounts and Business Advisory Department?
The majority of the client base is family owner- managed businesses with a turnover ranging up to £5 million. Our client base is diverse, providing the opportunity to learn about different types of organisations from varying industry sectors.

The accounts team provide advice on a daily basis to their clients who are in various sectors. The team are the first port of call for most clients when they have financial and business related queries. This advice is invaluable to clients who do not have in house advisors to deal with day to day issues which can vary from a simple question on how to post in an accounting package to more complex queries on funding and succession planning.

Our trainees play a key role in supporting the work described above and, gain tremendous experience to provide top quality career development. You will benefit from on the job training from more senior members of the team, as well as joining peers on internal training courses that will develop you as an individual.

Trainees will become involved in client work very quickly, initially working as part of a larger team – perhaps taking responsibility for specific audit tests or aspects of the audit file.

The depth of services and clients you will be exposed to early in your career will provide you with a jump start into the varied world of accountancy. We will expose you to the skills you require to become a true trusted advisor to your clients in the future.

Training
While gaining real hands on experience your development in the role will be optimised by training from the company’s highly regarded dedicated team. As well as internal training and on-the-job mentoring you will have the opportunity to train towards the AAT qualification, with support provided post-qualification ensuring you are well equipped to enjoy a successful and satisfying career with the business.
