We are looking to recruit graduates for our September & April intake. Our people are key to our success. We want to recruit and retain the very best, so every year we look for five to six top-quality graduates who wish to train as chartered accountants. We offer the quality and benefits of a large firm in a smaller environment where there is more opportunity to use your initiative and gain responsibility early on. We provide wide-ranging work experience in fields including investigation litigation support, business planning, financial modelling, tax planning, audit and general business advice. As a trainee, you will have the opportunity to deal with everything from an entrepreneur just setting up a business, to a large established company. Our clients include high street names such as Wimpy and GBK, AIM-listed companies, film distributors, retailers and travel firms. We also specialise in working with hedge fund managers regulated by the FCA. Our audit assignments are typically completed within two weeks, so our trainees gain experience in a much wider variety of businesses than those at the Big Four, where a single job might last six months. Because we place so much importance on people, our starting salaries are at the top end of the market – currently £27,000 p.a. We welcome applications from graduates of any discipline with a consistent record of achievement (including at least 340 UCAS points from three ‘A’ levels or 35 IB points). We are looking for strong communication and analytical skills and a willingness to contribute both to the work itself and to the collaborative atmosphere of the firm.
