Job Description

Evolve from a student, into an accountancy hero through our AAT Apprenticeship scheme.

From day one you’ll gain invaluable experience working closely with our senior management and partners. We’ll also support you with your studies helping you to accomplish greatness through industry recognised qualifications

(You'll also get to add the wonderful prestigious three letters to the end of your name!)



What you'll be up to..

Working within our specialist Pensions Audit team you'll be growing your technical knowledge.

Day to day you'll be involved with the preparation and audit of pension scheme accounts. You'll learn the principles of auditing as well as learning how to post journal entries and create Pensions SORP compliant accounts.

Now we appreciate some of those phrases may be "gobbledy-goop" to you right now - That's the joy of this role, through training you'll become a technical guru! You'll also get to qualify 1-2 years quicker than friends that go off to University!


What we're looking for

We're keen to set people up for success. So instead of telling you what we're looking for, instead we're going to flip it's on it back.

Who this role isn't for: Shy characters who are afraid to pick up the phone. People who flap under pressure. Those who want a "typical 9-5". Silo-workers who don't pull together. And lastly, our biggest pet-peeve.. the stationary people. Those without a hunger or ambition to learn. 

We don't just want robots who "churn out work" - We want real genuine people who can listen to our clients problems and help tackle them head on. 


So what are you waiting for? Kick start your career today with a Top Tier Accounting Firm in the Midlands.


**To help set people up for success we prefer students to have a minimum of 112 UCAS points, however – drive an ambition is just as important! As such we welcome applications from all backgrounds.
