Job Description

We are pleased to offer the opportunity of a Graduate Trainee Accountant role for a September 2021 start.  This role offers fully funded training for the ACA through both in-house mentoring and classroom courses with Kaplan. We are immensely proud of our training track record, with a 100% pass rate for ACA exams with our trainees to date.

We are looking for applicants with a minimum of 2:1 degree in any discipline who are keen to pursue a career in accountancy.  The successful candidate will have a professional approach, good communication skills and be highly motivated, ambitious and keen to learn.  Experience is not essential as full training will be given.

At Botham Accounting we believe that the best way to serve our clients is by ensuring each staff member has a broad range of experience throughout the spectrum of accounting for SMEs. On this basis, your role day to day throughout your training contract is likely to be varied, gaining experience and knowledge of the following:

  • Bookkeeping (mainly using Xero, but also with other systems)
  • VAT Returns
  • Management Accounts Preparation
  • Year End Accounts Preparation
  • Corporation Tax computations
  • Company Secretarial and other Admin tasks
  • Involvement in audits and other specialist assignments

There may be opportunities to assist the personal tax and payroll departments to further your knowledge. Not only will this experience be a great benefit to your career, but will also complement your ACA studies.

Botham Accounting is a growing firm based in Nottingham city centre. We take a proactive approach to adopting innovations in technology to help us work smarter.  We operate a paperless, cloud-based office and are able to work remotely from home should COVID restrictions continue.

Working hours will be 37.5 hours per week (Monday to Friday) based around core hours of 9:30am to 4:30pm.  We acknowledge the importance of the individual needs of our team and are as flexible in our support as possible.  If you are successful in your application we will work with you to develop a long term study plan that is best for both your career progression and personal circumstances.
