So you want a career in accounting?
But what type of accountant do you want to be? Do you want to work in a particular industry? Do you want to work with exciting start-up companies? Large blue-chip corporations? Specialise in Automotive, Energy or Agriculture sectors?
One of the great things about working in accounting is the variety of work and the different types of people and businesses you get to work with, but initially all that choice can be a bit daunting.

ACA training is highly varied and demanding and the training scheme has no ‘typical’ day. Nevertheless, we have tried to give you an overview of your training and an idea of the type of work you can expect to be involved in at the different stages of your studies.
There are three components to training in the Nottingham team;
The most obvious element is the need to study for and pass the professional exams. This role will be a Level 7 Apprenticeship programme, which means all your costing for the ICAEW will be funded for you. The firm also provides full support towards your examinations and study leave, for the first attempts at all the exams and assessments that go towards the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) qualification. With first time passes it takes three years to complete your studies. Tuition is given by one of the leading external providers.
We will invest in your training not simply to help you to pass examinations, but to help your development as a true business professional. The key elements of your initial training will be:
• Examination based tuition provided by a leading specialist tutor.
• Regular monitoring of exam preparation.
• A structured programme of practical skills training.
There is no denying that the professional examinations are tough and to succeed requires commitment and determination. We give you a large amount of practical support and encouragement but, at the end of the day, the will to succeed must come from you.
