Job Description

Trainee Accountant (ACA)

Camerons Accountancy is well established Oxfordshire accountancy firm with a relatively small, yet diversely talented team. Recent growth has driven the need for us to expand our team, so we are looking for a bright individual who has studied to A level standard to join us as an ACA (ICAEW) trainee. 

The Firm
We are an approachable firm, set in a beautiful rural business park, just outside of Oxford with easy access to the major train stations and roads. We are not your typical local accountancy practice. We do offer a full array of typical accountancy services including preparation of financial statements, tax and advisory but also provide our clients with other specialised areas, such as audit, M&As, R&D and start-ups, which are often reserved for larger sized firms.

We have a broad client base covering many different industries and sectors. This diverse offering allows us to provide a fantastic training environment where trainees can develop and apply their understanding of accountancy to all the ACA modules daily and go beyond what is learnt at college.

The Role
We are offering a training agreement, the fundamentals of which are set out by ICAEW, where you will work towards becoming a Chartered Accountant. We are offering a challenging and exciting role where you can learn and work simultaneously. During technical working days, you will be exposed to all areas of the practice. You will work with all team members and be able to learn first-hand from highly experienced colleagues.

To progress with a career in accountancy, knowledge and training is required, but communication, attention to detail and other soft skills are vital. You will also quickly learn the importance of how to communicate and build a professional relationship with clients, an area that we pride ourselves on.

Tuition is a fundamental part of the training agreement and we offer a full study support package. We know that all students are different, so we allow flexibility to arrange classroom tuition with the provider of your choice and location that most suits you, this allows students to select the training provider most fitting to their personality and learning styles. We also prefer students to arrange their own study timetable, at a pace to fit in with the work schedule, which has been highly valued by our past and present trainees.

The Individual
We are looking for a talented individual with excellent communication skills and a desire to train. You will need to be a self-starter, be determined and motivated to pass exams and achieve your goal of completing the training agreement.

We will invest time in your learning experiences, give the support and opportunities necessary for you to succeed, but you must be driven and committed in order to become a Chartered Accountant and thrive in our unique setting. Also working within a small team, you must be personable not only with clients but with colleagues; our collaborative philosophy means good office relationships are key.

We are looking for the successful candidate to start in early September. The closing date for applications is Friday 15th July 2021.
