Job Description

From preparing a set of accounts for a sole trader one week, you could be a member of a team auditing the accounts of a large group of companies the next, before heading off to lead an independent examination of a charity.

You will learn to prepare accounts, plan and carry out audits and calculate tax for individuals, charities and companies, all under the supervision of a team of experienced managers and partners.

You will be able to work closely with senior members of staff throughout your training contract and will receive regular appraisals to aid your development. Successful applicants will receive a competitive initial salary, together with a fully funded study package throughout the training contract. 

We offer training to both graduates and school leavers for the following qualifications:

  • Chartered Accountants (ACA)
  • Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)
  • Chartered Institute of Taxation (ATII)
  • Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT)

All students are assigned to our main office at 30 St. Giles, which is central to Oxford city centre. We are looking for trainees with strong links to Oxford who feel they can make a major contribution to our firm. We would therefore invite candidates to reference any connections they have to Oxford in their covering letter or to explain why they would like to work here.

We welcome applications from any individual that meets our selection criteria. Applicants should have a minimum of 120 UCAS points (ie 3 B's) and, for graduate positions, a 2.2 degree or higher.

If you would like to obtain relevant qualifications and wish to apply for a training contract, please send your CV and a covering letter to the Training Partner, Lee Baker, at our Oxford office, or email the form to him at ljbaker@wenntownsend.co.uk
