• Your Ambitions.


School Leaver Programme

Each year, we offer ambitious individuals the chance to join us as a Trainee Accounts Assistant. We look to offer these positions to those that have the ability to study through University but are considering the alternative opportunity of training within a work environment (with appropriate formal further studies being considered over time).

We have a strong training ethos and are able to provide our people with a comprehensive training experience. We have recently been shortlisted for two categories at the cHeRries Awards – Tremendous Learning & Development and Exceptional Employee Engagement which reflects our efforts towards offering our people a professionally rewarding career.

During your initial stages of training you will be assisting with compliance work (i.e. accounts and tax return completion) but, as your experience grows, invariably your exposure to different types of work and clients will increase as will your level of responsibility. To equip you to deal with this, appropriate training and supervision will be provided.

You can find out more about who we are, what we offer and what we look for on our School Leaver Factsheet.
