Since the Edinburgh office opened in 1982, our portfolio of clients in Scotland and Northern England has expanded to include all realms of business with an emphasis on property matters, private clients, business owners, landed estates and entrepreneurs. The team provides tailor-made services for all aspects of our clients' lives - personal, family and business- and for all the phases of wealth generation and preservation.
We are now looking to recruit Trainee Certified Accountants to join our team from August 2023 to study towards their ACCA qualification on completion of their University studies. This will take 3 years to qualify.
Please note: we can only review applicants who are UK citizens or indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
Qualifying is not just about passing your exams; gaining valuable work experience is of equal importance. You will work in a friendly and progressive environment, within teams of varying sizes on audits and accounts preparation assignments.
There are many factors to consider when reviewing files, and we will introduce you to each part as you progress through your training contract. You will learn what information you need from a client and be trusted to liaise directly with them as required. 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. You will work on a variety of clients from different industries making for an exciting learning experience. By the end of your three years, you will be comfortable handling whole files by yourself preparing you for progression to Audit Senior.
As well as exciting client work, we offer excellent training and support for your studies. We use first-class tuition centres, alongside our own internally developed technical training programmes, to help you prepare for your examinations. This is supported by our dedicated training team who will monitor your progress throughout your studies.
