Description

  • Right now, we’re looking for university graduates wanting to start their career in audit as a trainee chartered accountant, studying towards the ACA qualification.
  • This will be offered under a Level 7 apprenticeship and will take three years to complete.
  • Exemptions will only apply if you’re AAT Level 4 qualified. We've found it gives you a much better chance of success with your exams if you’re studying the full ACA programme with a cohort.

Requirements

  • 2:1 (expected or obtained) in any discipline,
  • A minimum of 120 UCAS points in your A Levels (or equivalent), and
  • A minimum of 6 (or B) in GCSE Maths and English Language (or equivalent).
  • About the qualification:
  • We offer a three-year ACA training contract under a Level 7 apprenticeship.
  • Studying as an apprentice won’t impact the time it takes you to complete the qualification, it just means that there's a defined study pathway in place to ensure you have the best chance to succeed. You'll gain technical knowledge and key skills/behaviours to maximise your potential in the role.

Responsibilities

  • Qualifying is not just about passing your exams; gaining valuable work experience is so important.
  • You'll work in a friendly and progressive environment on audit and accounts preparation assignments, with exposure to clients from different industries. We guarantee an exciting and varied learning experience.
  • We'll show you each part of a file review. You'll learn what information you need from a client and liaise directly with them. You may start with audit testing of simpler balances within financial statements, such as cash at bank and share capital, and then progress to income and expenditure testing.
  • By the end of your training contract, you’ll be comfortable handling whole files by yourself, preparing you for progression into a senior audit role.
  • You'll also receive excellent training and support for your studies. We use first-class tuition centres and organise our own off-site trainee programmes. You’ll get to meet and socialise with trainees across all offices, so it isn't all just work, and you can have fun too.
