Job Description

Who are we?

Treetops is a growing firm of Chartered Accountants based in Farnborough Hampshire, established in 2000.  We deliver a full range of accounting, tax and business advisory services to a wide range of clients from not-for-profit to sole traders to multi-million-pound businesses throughout the UK and abroad. Our culture is one of informality whilst still maintaining the highest professional and ethical standards, and offering a superior client service.

Who are we looking for?

Due to our rapid growth, we are looking to recruit bright and ambitious graduates, with a strong sense of commitment to study and train under the new Level 7 Apprenticeship Scheme to qualify as a Chartered Accountant, who will then progress to assist in facilitating our continued expansion.

The ICAEW ACA qualification is one of the most highly respected professional qualifications in business opening a wealth of rewarding opportunities in practice, industry and the public sector. However, don’t underestimate the commitment required to work full-time whilst studying for this premium qualification.

In addition to this, your learning will be consolidated by your on-the-job training during which we will help you to further develop the IT, communication and management skills needed to stand out as an effective business professional.

During this time, you will be fully supported by our in-house team of qualified accountants.
