We're looking for people with enquiring, lively minds and a strong sense of commitment. In return we offer an excellent training programme and career opportunities.
We use a leading firm of accountancy tutors to help you prepare for, and pass, your exams. The study method we have found to be the most effective is a combination of a home study programme and study leave to attend courses spread throughout the duration of your three-year training contract. Just as importantly, you need to have experience of working and learning on a variety of assignments with different clients.
We will help you to get the right mix, and we'll expect you to take responsibility for projects and people as soon as you're ready. In addition, you'll acquire strong IT, communication and management skills.
On qualification, you may wish to specialise in areas such as taxation, corporate finance or insolvency or to follow a more generalist route. The choice is yours.
Many of our partners started with us as trainees and now run their own client portfolios. In addition, trainees qualifying with us are often offered opportunities working with our clients. Whichever direction you choose to go in, you will have a qualification and a bank of experience that will provide an excellent grounding for your future.
