Job Description

Realise your potential and enjoy a wealth of opportunities in a graduate role at Sagars.

Due to continued growth, we are now seeking a high calibre graduate to join our business client team in summer 2021.  The successful applicant will gain quality work experience with us whilst studying for the ACA qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) under a Level 7 Accounting Professional Apprenticeship.

Throughout your training contract you’ll have your own mentor and you can expect the full support of our award-winning team. You’ll get the very best technical training and early responsibility with practical experience across a wide range of audit, accounting and tax work in a progressive firm that’s embracing the latest technological developments and is a recognised cloud accounting leader.

The average length of service across our team is 11 years - testament to the flexible and supportive working environment that we’ve created. One of our current partners and many of our senior managers joined us as graduates - proof of the excellent career prospects that exist for the right people.

To guarantee the very best technical and personal levels of service, we’re looking for one additional high calibre graduate with the drive and personality to help us meet our clients’ needs.  Competition is tough and you’ll need a minimum ABB at A level (or equivalent) and a 2:1 degree classification (in any discipline) to be considered.  Each year our graduate intake includes at least five team members and we’re proud to count prize-winners amongst our students.

We offer:

  • paid study leave
  • paid overtime
  • agile, flexible and variable working arrangements
  • pension scheme contributions
  • dress for your day policy
  • loyalty holidays
  • a competitive salary, and
  • we pay all course and exam fees.

Please note that we are not on the register of visa sponsors and the Graduate Training Programme (ACA) does not meet the salary requirements for a visa. At the time of starting their employment, the successful candidate must have permission to work in the UK.

Got a good feeling about Sagars? Think you’d fit right in? Then we’d love to hear from you…

If the variety and challenge of a broad-based role is appealing to you, please complete this application form  and email it back to senior business client manager Claire King  (she trained with us too). Alternatively, we’re happy to accept printed copies of the application form at our office.

The closing deadline for applications is Monday 5 April 2021 and shortlisted applicants will be invited to an online interview on Thursday 29 April 2021.
