We are looking for up to 3 dynamic, energetic CA trainees to join our audit team. Ideally you should have/expect to achieve a minimum of a 2:1 in either an accredited or non-accredited degree.

We have an extensive range of clients from sole traders and partnerships to large limited companies and a significant number of charities. Students will be given experience of bookkeeping, VAT, audit, accounts preparation and corporation taxation plus the opportunity to work on other one-off projects. Initially our CA students are given practical experience with bookkeeping and preparing VAT returns before quickly moving on to accounts preparation and audit. Initial audit experience will be in an audit team, as an assistant, but with experience students will senior audits on their own before becoming the audit senior responsible for the audit team. 


We offer an interesting and varied training experience with a high level of client and partner contact where students can expect early responsibility. We provide on-going support and training in a friendly office environment, where students are encouraged to share their training experiences.
