An overview of the role
Your first year will be spent learning about working in the Outsourcing Team in order to deliver exceptional client service to UK and international clients.
Your day to day work will mirror what you will learn in your studies and will initially focus on maintaining accounting records before moving on to the preparation of management accounts.
Your main responsibilities will be to work with our experienced team of management accountants to support them in the delivery of services to clients. You will be given significant responsibility from the offset, but you will have the support of a line manager, a mentor, and a graduate network.
As your training contract progresses you will take on further responsibilities in other areas such as management information, VAT and financial modelling as well as having the opportunity to run your own client portfolio.
How we will support you
We will fund you to study towards the ACCA (Association Chartered Certified Accountants) qualification.
You will receive a full study package and time off to attend college but, with Mazars your professional qualification is only part of the story. We support all our trainees with a blended approach to training and development, classroom study, 1:1 coaching and support and, as you progress, technical and skills training to enable you to progress to management and leadership positions.
You will spend time away from the office to attend classes for tuition and revision stages of each exam. The classroom taught approach means that you will have the support of your peers and valuable study time for your exams.
We also operate a number of in-house training courses which will give you technical insight to assist you to keep up with changes in legislation and case law, both in the UK and worldwide.
What we are looking for
We want driven professional individuals who excel at working with others, who have the ability to communicate at a high level and who share the same values as Mazars. Alongside this you must be able to demonstrate analytical skills, commitment, drive, commercial awareness, flexibility and creativity.
We look for candidates who can demonstrate a strong academic track record.
- You will have achieved, or be on course to achieve, at least a 2.1 in your degree, although the subject of your degree is not important.
- You’ll need at least 280 UCAS points (to have achieved in the same academic year, from your best 3 A Levels and excluding General Studies).
- We also look for Grade B or above in GCSE English Language and Maths.
If there were extenuating circumstances that affected your result(s), please tell us in your application form so we can consider whether we take them into account.
Closing date for applications
We do not have a closing date for our vacancies, so you can apply all year round. However, competition is high so we would advise that you apply as early as you can.
