Smith & Williamson has around 1,750 staff in 13 principal offices across the UK and Ireland.
We hold the unique position of combining a firm of chartered accountants, currently ranked the 8th largest accountancy practice in the UK (according to Accountancy Age, 2016), with an investment management and private banking house. Add to this a range of financial advisory services and this means a more comprehensive service for our clients – and a greater choice for you.
What makes us different? We are distinctive among the top ten firms for our range of services. Accountancy, corporate advisory, financial services and tax, coupled with a strong investment management arm, means we are large enough to be competitive, but small enough that your hard work and efforts will not go unnoticed. We put the client first and focus on delivering the right solutions. You will work closely with people in your own department and, in most cases, with individuals in other departments, to provide imaginative yet pragmatic advice and solutions derived from a thorough understanding of our clients’ objectives and needs. You will be learning from talented, experienced individuals and will be able to develop your skills across a diverse client base.
Training and development - we offer a number of entry routes to start your professional training. Trainees joining departments across Tax and Business Services – Assurance and Business Services, Corporate Tax and Private Client Tax Services - will pursue Chartered Accountancy qualifications. You will also undertake placements in other departments to enable you to gain a greater insight into our business, increase your commercial knowledge and expand your networks across the firm.
We have a strong commitment to supporting you through your ACA training.
