Job Description

Are you looking for a Graduate Trainee Accountant (ICAEW) role to start in September 2022?   Apply now to join the team at Botham Accounting.  We offer fully funded training for the ACA through both in-house mentoring and classroom courses with Kaplan. You will benefit greatly from our excellent training track record, with a 100% pass rate for ACA exams with our trainees to date.

To be successful in your application you will have a minimum of 2:1 degree in any discipline and be keen to pursue a career in accountancy.  A professional approach, good communication skills and being highly motivated, ambitious and keen to learn are all key characteristics you’ll need to join us. 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 the team 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 will 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 other specialist assignments

You will have opportunities to assist the audit team, tax team and payroll department 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 based in Nottingham city centre.  Our team have championed 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 the need arise.

Working hours will be 37.5 hours per week (Monday to Friday) based around core hours of 9:30am to 4:30pm.  Your individual needs are important to us and we 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.

Your applications should be made by letter with your CV to and close on Sunday 16 January.  If you progress to the next stage of the process you will be contacted in late February/early March 2022 to organise interviews later in March.
