Rethinking accountancy: bright AAT trainees required

Your opportunity

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for AAT trainees to start in October 2018.

In our London office we have opportunities for the training of Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) followed by either ACA/CTA or ACCA depending on your specialisation.

All training will be provided on an apprenticeship scheme.

The subject of your A Levels is not important; what matters to us is that you are bright, professional, and a clear communicator.

We like strength of mind, interest in the world, integrity, positivity and a willingness to collaborate. Energy and determination also form a strong part of what we look for. We want to deliver technical brilliance and expect you to have the ability to develop this.

Official training

We’ll provide structured development on audit, outsourcing, accounts and tax, IT training delivered by our own experts and the best external practitioners. We work closely with Kaplan, whose apprenticeship training encompasses leading online learning technologies, award-winning study materials and highly experienced tutors.

You’ll develop your wider interpersonal and professional skills again with internal and external providers. After you’ve qualified, we’ll continue to support your growth through additional professional qualifications, new development programmes, a range of work opportunities and careers guidance.

What we look for

You will be expected to develop and deliver technical excellence, which means you’ll need the qualities that this will demand: qualities that set you apart from your peers. You need to be able to study and develop your thinking. We are open to how you demonstrate this. Traditionally it’s done through academic results, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Feel free to surprise us!

What we offer

Our trainees will enjoy:

  • Paid study support and development opportunities
  • Private medical cover
  • Season ticket loans
  • Rising holiday entitlement with length of service
  • A full, regular and varied social calendar
  • Voluntary work with our sponsored causes
