Your Ambitions. Energised.

At EQ, people are at the heart of what we do and we seek to provide an environment where our employees have every opportunity to grow both professionally and personally and to fulfil their aspirations at each stage of their career.  With a strong training ethos and non-departmentalised work structure, we are able to provide our people with a diverse training experience.

We are proud to have been recognised as “Most Innovative Large Firm” at the national 2020 Annual Innovation Awards in 2017, having previously won “Managing Partner of the Year” in 2015.  In addition, we are past finalists in the categories of “Best Medium Firm” and “Training Manager of the Year” at the Scottish Accountancy & Finance Awards.

This year, we were also delighted to be shortlisted for “Tremendous Learning and Development” and “Exceptional Employee Engagement” at the cHeRries Awards, along with “Tax Team of the Year” at the Scottish Accountancy & Finance Awards.  In addition, one of our CA’s was recently awarded ICAS’s “One Young CA 2018”.

Training With Us. 

We offer an intensive training programme and the size of our Firm means we are large enough to provide interesting and varied training but small enough to maintain personal contact with all our trainees.

In addition to compliance work, you will have exposure to a wide and varied series of assignments in all areas – accountancy, taxation and audit.

We have sufficient resource to develop a pool of highly specialised expertise, whilst retaining the personal care and attention that our clients and staff appreciate.  The focus for our trainees is to achieve success throughout examinations and gain the required ICAS competencies. The culture of the Firm supports this with the level of on-the-job training and sharing of knowledge and experience from our current trainees up to Partner level.

Our Training Contracts.

We are looking to employ staff with enthusiasm and commitment to provide a high quality, added value service to our clients.  In return, we offer an intensive training programme and exposure to a wide and varied series of assignments.  Your skills will be developed in accountancy, taxation and audit and your IT and business development exposure will be substantial.  As your experience grows, invariably your client exposure will increase as will your level of responsibility.   To equip you to deal with this, personal skills training is provided.

We are able to offer a professionally rewarding career, with an emphasis on continued professional development and recognise our people are our key resource.

Minimum Requirements

Our minimum requirement is an Honours degree (2:1 or above) in any discipline.

We will first look at applicants who have at least 300 UCAS points and no requirement for a work permit over the initial 3 year training contract.
