We’re looking to recruit a number of graduates for our 2016 intakes, who aspire to become chartered accountants. We have high standards and are looking for candidates with excellent academic qualifications as well as drive, ambition and a thirst for success.
In return, you’ll enjoy a competitive salary and an excellent study and benefits package, with salary increases based on exam and work performances. Add to this the opportunities and varied lifestyle that working in the South East has to offer and it all adds up to a very rewarding opportunity.
Your route to the ICAEW (ACA) qualification
You will enter employment under a three year training contract, during which you will receive a wide range of practical experience while studying for your professional examinations; all of which leads to the ICAEW (ACA) Chartered Accountant qualification.
Practical training to equip you for your work with us is provided by our training partner (SWAT UK) and more technical training focusing on the exams is provided by professional tutors from Kaplan. Both are leading training organisations in the profession, and this is supplemented by in-house workshops and training sessions. You will be given paid study leave, and we also cover the costs of all courses and examinations for first attempts.
Join the Team
Trainees start interacting with clients straight away. When office-based, trainees will be calling and emailing clients for information and when at clients, they will be dealing with clients’ staff face-to-face.
The core of our work is year-end accounts, audit and the related corporation tax computations. Trainees tackle more complex assignments as they gain knowledge and experience. Trainees are supervised and reviewed by senior staff who are responsible for training and developing junior staff.
We are looking for mature, numerate and intelligent students who are willing to work hard, study hard and play hard. Above all, you will need to have the flexibility to adapt to a variety of challenging situations and the communication skills to express ideas and deal with clients at all levels.
