Do you train graduates and school leavers?
Yes, we offer training contracts to graduates and also those straight from school who are looking for an alternative route into the profession.
How do I apply?
Please visit the Graduate, School Leaver or Internship/Work Experience sections of our website for more information and links to our application forms.
What qualifications do you support?
As a firm we have staff going through a variety of professional qualifications including AAT, ACCA, CA, ATT and CTA. For our training programmes that start each Aug/Sept we support students through either AAT, ACCA or CA.
We also offer traineeships within tax where you would be supported through either the ATT or CTA qualifications – these tax positions are advertised throughout the year, either on our Student Recruitment page for trainee roles or Experienced Hire page depending on the nature of the role we have to fill.
Do you have minimum requirements?
Yes, the professional training and exams are demanding and therefore we have set our minimum requirements to be a 2:1 or above in any degree discipline and a minimum of 4 Highers at A or B grade to include English and Mathematics.
What if I have extenuating circumstances, will they be considered?
Yes, we will always take into account your overall application and any extenuating circumstances. There is a section on the application form that allows you to tell us about any circumstances that you feel are important that we know.
Do you have set deadlines for applying?
No, we fill our vacancies as soon as we have identified good candidates, we would therefore encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible to be considered. Applications normally open around the beginning of September for our graduate positions and in October for our School Leaver positions. Summer Internships are advertised in January of each year.
What support is provided during my training?
You will be well supported by experienced and qualified staff who will help guide and mentor you throughout your training contract. Peer support is also important and you will find that there are trainees across the offices who can relate to what you are going through and offer support.
The firm’s HR Department will support you throughout, from the outset of applying and going through the recruitment process; to on-boarding and joining the firm; right through to the support you receive during your time with us from the firm’s Learning & Development Specialist who is responsible for supporting and developing all of our staff.
