Job Description

Adler Shine are looking to recruit for Summer 2022 ambitious go-getters, who have the passion and drive to excel; individuals who do not just want to get a professional qualification with us but are aiming to develop their professional careers with us. We are invested in developing our graduate trainees because here, you are not just a number, you are part of our future!


That is why our partners are actively involved from the very start of the recruitment process, to identify those who stand-out and have the potential to be future partners themselves.


The practice

A growing 9 partner practice based in North London that will rival most medium size practices in central London for the quality of its client base and variety of work. We are a boutique practice that has built its foundations on successful relationships and a forward thinking, dynamic partnership that remains fiercely independent and proud of what it has achieved to date.


Our partners have the experience and knowledge of significantly larger practices but the friendly and supportive approach of a smaller firm, giving the perfect balance of technical expertise and dedication to partner-led service.


We feel that working together as a team rather than remotely is hugely beneficial for training and development and our location has been part of our success over the past year. We have strived to create a safe working environment where we can continue training and developing our staff. Our spacious office and prime location in North London have enabled us to keep our office open, whilst most offices in central London have remained closed.


The role: Graduate ACA Trainee

As a trainee within our Audit and/or Accounts teams, you can expect to enjoy a wide variety of assignments throughout your training contract. Our clients vary from owner-managed businesses, to subsidiaries that are part of international groups through to companies quoted on The London Stock Exchange.


Our trainees gain exposure and experience to all parts of the audit process as well as the preparation of financial statements, developing their all-round technical ability and knowledge.


On the job learning is paramount to your development. The team provides support and training which compliments the professional courses that you will attend with our preferred training provider.


Our team has a strong work ethos, a commitment to taking ownership and delivering quality work to agreed timeframes. It is essential that we recruit like-minded people with a team spirit that thrive on challenges and the will to succeed.

  • A graduate with, or expecting to achieve, a 2:1 degree or higher;

  • Strong A Levels (min 300 UCAS points pre 2017 / 120 UCAS points post 2017)

  • Someone who takes ownership and pride in their work and can support the team
