Job Description

The Manchester office of Royce Peeling Green Limited (“RPG”) is currently recruiting for intelligent, articulate and commercially astute school leavers for our September 2018 intake (earlier may be possible). The role will provide full training on the Level 4 ICAEW and then the Level 7 ICAEW Apprenticeship programmes. On completion of the Level 7 Apprenticeship programme, the successful candidate(s) will be fully ACA Qualified.

RPG was established over 100 years ago in Manchester and has remained one of the major independent firms of Chartered Accountants in the city since that time. We also have offices in London and North Wales. As well as our accountancy practice we have a financial planning and wealth management business, RPG Consulting.

RPG is part of the DFK International association of firms which provides us with the capability to act for clients with cross border interests around the globe. The association has more than 350 offices and 9,000 staff worldwide and a fee income in excess of $1billion. This also enables us to tap into the technical resources of other member firms when required.

Our client base includes both large and small companies, charities and other not for profit organisations, law firms and sole traders. As a result we can offer exposure to a wider variety of work experiences than many other firms of our size. We offer a Director led, hands on service to our clients and you will benefit from direct contact with our senior team and clients, and have the opportunity to make a real contribution to their affairs.

Working towards the ICAEW professional qualification involves comprehensive work experience and a study program using specialist training companies for tuition and exam support. We offer paid study leave in addition to your annual holiday entitlement.

There are various service lines within our business including accounts preparation, audit, corporate and personal tax, and corporate recovery, to name a few. You will mainly work in our accounts and audit compliance departments where you will learn how to prepare financial information and gain knowledge of broader commercial, financial and taxation issues whilst also undertaking audits.

You will not only be dealing with numbers, but working as part of a team with colleagues and clients. We do not expect you to be the finished article on recruitment, but we need to be sure that the potential and ability is there so you can be properly trained.

Applicants should have at least a UCAS tariff score of 300 / 120 (equivalent to BBB at A-Level).

Applications should be made by 31 May 2018.
