Our Sittingbourne office is now recruiting a graduate for their Training Vacancy. 

UHY Hacker Young will be training you to be a business adviser, not just an auditor. So your work will form the central part of your overall training and development. Our staff are trained to be ‘commercially aware’ and to respond to the problems and issues affecting the businesses of our clients. At first you will be based in one of our audit and investigation groups and work as part of a team carrying out client assignments. Inevitably, the nature of the work and individual assignments vary from office to office. But the range of client assignments and breadth of experience available within the UHY Hacker Young Group will stretch you and help you to gain a solid understanding of the business world.

Training to be an accountant is more than an academic process and each individual’s learning needs will be different and will change over time. The professional experience comes from learning on the job. There are opportunities in all work assignments to apply and develop your knowledge and to learn more by dealing with real business situations.

Supporting you through your training

As we only select a small number of trainees in any one year, there is a better chance for successful graduates to stretch their talents and to experience a greater diversity of work. We encourage you to develop quickly and take on responsibility for assignments. And your progress is reviewed on a regular basis through:

  • Written evaluation reports at the end of each assignment to assess your performance
  • Meetings with your counselling manager to review progress every six months
  • Formal reviews with your partner

We help you to achieve your first career goal by qualifying as an accountant; either chartered accountant (ACA) or a chartered certified accountant (ACCA). And we are proud of our record of exam successes – first time around. For more detailed information about the differences between the ACA and ACCA qualification, please follow the appropriate links:

  • ACA
  • ACCA

We can also increase the variety of your work experience though secondments to other offices or to specialist departments such as tax or corporate recovery. Secondments demand new skills and expose you to a new range of business problems and client needs.

Post qualification

It doesn’t stop there either. As a qualified accountant, you will hold an excellent business qualification and an immense number of opportunities are available to you within public practice, commerce and industry. At UHY Hacker Young we encourage you to make the most of your talents. We talk to you about your ambitions and we aim to provide the work experience you require for your success.
