The role

We are looking to recruit individuals to join our audit department on a three year training contract as part of our September 2021 ACA intake.

About us

Goodman Jones LLP is a central London firm of chartered accountants. Established in 1934, we are a team of accountants, auditors, tax, and business advisers. Together with our supporting IT, HR, and financial services companies, we provide the full range of compliance, support, and advisory services. Our clients include UK owner managed businesses, UK subsidiaries of large international groups, charities and not-for-profit organisations, and start-up business and entrepreneurs – all across a wide range of sectors.

Training at Goodman Jones

From the very beginning of your training, you will work as part of a team on a wide variety of clients and sectors. You will gain strong technical skills in all of the key areas: accounting, auditing, and corporate tax. This is supported by the opportunity to work on one-off assignments and special projects. No function receives more care and attention than the selection and training of our graduate intake to ensure that not only do you qualify, but also that you develop as an individual into a well-rounded and assured professional.

Your future

Every applicant chosen to become one of our trainees is selected on the basis that they have the attributes we believe are required to progress to a very senior level at Goodman Jones. Indeed, many of our current managers and partners trained at Goodman Jones.

What we look for

We look for students with strong academic results; we require a minimum 2.1 degree (in any subject) and 120 UCAS tariff points (under the new points system). We may consider candidates outside of these grade requirements if they are exceptional in all other respects – we do consider the ‘whole person’ in making our selection as we believe enthusiasm, the ability to mix with people, strong communication skills, and a determination to succeed are also all of equal importance.
