Careers with Wellden Turnbull

We are looking for 4 ambitious trainees to join in Summer 2020.  Three of the roles are within our audit and accounts department and one is in the tax department.

We offer a 3 year training contract with the ICAEW or 4 years joint CTA/ICAEW.

With a combination of structured training and ad-hoc on the job learning, we encourage the development of our people to achieve their potential in both technical and soft skills. Structured training is provided by BPP, one of the most experienced professional training providers.


We offer a competitive salary alongside an excellent study and benefits package, with salary increases based on exam and work performance. We also offer 20 days holiday plus study leave.

A major benefit of training with a medium size firm (compared with a much larger firm) is the depth and variety of assignments you will be involved with.  You will have exposure to a wide range of assignments with clients of all sizes in various industry sectors.

You will also benefit from greater involvement and day to day interactions with the firm's partners, who will take a direct interest in your development and support you through your training.
