Apprenticeship training programmes

Our first-class apprenticeship training programmes are an ideal career start for those of (but not limited to) school-leaver age (18+) and offer a fantastic tailored study route, providing an opportunity for a challenging and rewarding work experience as part of a dedicated and supportive team environment whilst earning a full-time salary.

We recruit Apprentices into our Accounts, Audit and Tax teams and offer study through an award-winning specialist accountancy provider, enabling you to gain a professional qualification in one of the following areas:

  • Accounting Technician – studying AAT via a L3/L4 Apprenticeship
  • Tax Technician – studying ATT via a L4 Apprenticeship
  • Chartered Accountant – studying ACA via a L7 Apprenticeship
  • Chartered Certified Accountant – studying ACCA via a L7 Apprenticeship
  • Chartered Tax Advisor – studying CTA via a L7 Apprenticeship

We recruit annually for our entry-level trainee apprenticeship roles for a Summer/September intake.  Our applications window opens from around mid-January each year and closes at the end of February, with first interviews taking place in March.
