Job Description

Love accountancy? Not so keen on the travel? We have just the role for you!

We're currently on the lookout for a trainee to join our specialist Pensions Audit Team.

No prior experience is needed although we're looking to kick things off asap. (sorry students finishing their studies, this wouldn't be one for you!)


About the role...

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!

We'll also put you through the AAT qualification (or equivalent depending on prior background) adding a certification to your belt. 


What you'll need...

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. 

If you're outside of that spectrum we're keen to hear from you! 

Any previous experience communicating with clients, or working in finance/accounts would be an advantage. 


About us and what's in it for you...

At PKF Cooper Parry our mindset is simple. We only do things if we believe we can be No.1.

We start by putting our people first. We offer competitive salaries, open holidays and flexible working. We’ve a great pension scheme, the “coolest” workplace (according to The Times and The Telegraph) and a 7pm-7am email curfew. We also offer exercise classes, career coaching and loads more benefits.

No wonder we came 12th in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2018!

We’re also growing fast. We’re the No.1 firm of accountants and business advisers In the Midlands for businesses with a turnover between £10-200m. We’re growing at an incredible rate and more and more companies want to work with us because of our values, culture and our ability to make it happen.
