Careers and Recruitment

We recognise that our people and their knowledge are our biggest asset if we are to provide the high quality service our clients have come to expect. 

We are often looking for skilled, multi-talented people to join our team.

We seek to employ people with an enthusiastic and progressive attitude and, above all, commitment.

Not only do we provide our people with an exceptional training ground, we guarantee a professionally rewarding career with an emphasis on continued professional development. The latter is actively encouraged through our performance appraisal scheme.

We seek to provide an environment where our people have every opportunity to grow both professionally and personally and fulfil their aspirations at each stage in their career. This has been acknowledged by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) who have awarded the firm with 'Platinum' accreditation in terms of trainee development. This is the highest level of accreditation they are able to award and recognises the high level of support we afford our trainees.

We have summarised some of the opportunities we sometimes have a need for, highlighting where current open vacancies exist: 

Newly Qualified and those with 2 - 3 years PQE

Specifically, we have open vacancies here at the moment in our Dundee, Forfar and Glenrothes offices but also welcome speculative applications for all other offices at any time.

We are able to offer superb opportunities in a pro-active general practice.  You would have responsibility for a portfolio of clients (under partner/manager supervision) and the ability to develop your technical skills in an excellent environment.  We offer genuine career prospects to ambitious individuals and an attractive remuneration package.

We are  looking for people who have recently completed the professional exams with ICAS, ACCA or ICAEW (or are about to do so) and have had relevant practice experience within the UK throughout their training.  We currently have an open vacancies here in our Dundee, Forfar and Glenrothes offices.

We also often look for those who hold membership with ICAS, ACCA or ICAEW and have had relevant practice experience within the UK throughout your training and in the 2 - 3 years since qualifying and we currently have open vacancies here in our Dundee and Forfar offices.

Please send your CV and covering email to recruit@eqaccountants.co.uk  or email recruit@eqaccountants.co.uk for further information on these open vacancies.

Graduates

We have recruited 5 graduates and have one remaining vacany open in our Forfar office to commence Chartered Accountancy training contracts in August 2016. 

To apply for this post, please send your CV and covering letter to recruit@eqaccountants.co.uk.

Please refer to our Factsheet Graduate Recruitment 2016  for more information and view our Factsheet Staff Profiles 2016 to read about our students' experiences of training with us.

Our minimum requirement is generally an honours degree (2:1 or above) in any discipline and no requirement for a work permit over the initial three year training contract.

Graduate Work Experience Placements

Within our offices, we offer students the chance to come and work for us for a few weeks over the summer. This gives the student the opportunity to see what working for a progressive, medium sized accountancy practice is really like before making any final decisions about what they want to do after graduation.

Read what one of our past placements students had to say.

We will shortly be advertising vacancies for summer 2016 through the ICAS online application site and students, preferably in their third year at university, who are interested in working with us for a period over the summer should view our "internship/work placement" vacancy on the ICAS website www.becomeaca.org.uk.   

We also support the RGU Placement Scheme by employing a student throughout their third year.  Read what one of our previous RGU placement students had to say of her experience.

Other Work Experience Placements

At times, we also offer work experience placements through various local schools and colleges. If you are interested in such a placement please contact recruit@eqaccountants.co.uk
 

Trainee Accounts Assistants

At times we will look for bright, ambitious people who are looking towards further formal studies in the future within a work environment. Generally, we are looking for people with the ability to study at university but who make the choice, for whatever reason, not to pursue this route. After a settling in period, potentially we are able to offer the opportunity for further study (potentially beyond the level of a degree) which may suit school/college leavers who are looking at a vocational route rather than a graduate route into the profession.  These positions may suit school/college leavers as no work experience is necessary.

Interested applicants should send send your CV and covering letter to Jenny Law at recruit@eqaccountants.co.uk.
