Big enough to matter, small enough to care

Established in 1918, Geoghegans is one of Scotland’s leading independent firms of chartered accountants. We are a 5 partner firm, based in central Edinburgh and employ over 60 staff, including 17 CA trainees and 7 Tax trainees. We provide a range of services to organisations in a number of different sectors and this variety helps to ensure our trainees have the opportunity to learn something new with every assignment.

Investment in people

We understand that our service can only be as good as our people. As part of the CA training programme, graduates attend a number of ICAS block release classes as they study towards each of the different levels of the CA qualification. We support our trainees throughout this process including time off to attend classes, paid study leave and other assistance as required. In addition to the ICAS block release, we hold regular internal and external training courses to help trainees develop their skills and remain abreast of changes in legislation.

Culture of support

We believe that one of our strengths is the level of support we give to our staff and our trainees. Soon after graduates arrive, they are allocated a mentor who offers guidance and support throughout the training contract. These mentors are newly qualified CAs who understand exactly what it is like to undertake a CA training contract. Our trainees also attend quarterly meetings with our Student Counselling Partner to discuss their experience to date, any work or exam issues and to participate in presentations on relevant technical issues.

Join our team

Everyone at Geoghegans shares the ambition to continually improve on what we do and how we do it. We are looking for 6 graduates to join our team as part of our CA training programme commencing in August 2019. Candidates should have a strong academic record, good interpersonal skills and share our passion and commitment for providing outstanding client service.
