Job Description

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

Successful candidates will gain quality work experience with us whilst studying for the joint ACA and CTA 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 trust, accounting and personal tax work in a progressive firm that is 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. Two 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 a 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. 

We offer paid study leave, a standard 35-hour week, generous flexi time arrangement, pension scheme contributions and a competitive salary - and we pay all course and exam fees. 

To find out more about what it’s like to be part of the Sagars team, watch our graduate video.

If the variety and challenge of a broad-based role is appealing to you, please complete the application form and email it back to Asmah Mahmood.  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.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak our offices are currently closed. We are still accepting applications in the meantime and will be in touch to confirm shortlisted applicants once our offices reopen.
