Our first-class ACA training programme enables you to develop into a Chartered Accountant in an ambitious and forward-thinking business within three years.

But it's not all about work. Our trainees are all encouraged to make a wider contribution through business development activities, and wider initiatives such as CSR, diversity and sports and social activities. This allows you to develop into both technical experts and the future leaders of our business.

We know this gives our business a refreshingly different, people-focussed culture. And that’s just one of the reasons why we came 26th (and the second highest professional services firm in the UK) in the 2018 Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For rankings.
