Each year we take on a number of graduates as part of our Graduate Training programme. Many of our senior staff, including Partners, joined us as graduates and went on to carve out a career with us as financial experts.

The Training

Our Graduate CA training  programme has been designed to support you towards becoming a professionally qualified Chartered Accountant, gaining experience across our full range of specialisms including commercial and corporate financial accounting, tax and VAT consultancy, audit and assurance, company secretarial and payroll.

Your training will include spending time in classes at college (usually Newcastle or Edinburgh), completing the exam modules and working within our contemporary, high-tech offices. Throughout you will receive support and mentoring and will be provided with all the practical tools necessary for a career in accountancy.

When you successfully complete your training, you will hold a qualification from either ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland) or ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants England & Wales).  These qualifications are recognised and valued worldwide.

We also encourage graduates to join our wealth management team and train to become a paraplanner or achieve CII Level 6 Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning with the ambition to qualify as a Chartered Financial Planner.

Your salary is competitive and increases with each year of study you complete and when you become part qualified. We also cover the costs of your study package, first sitting of each exam and travel expenses.

The Ideal Candidate

It takes hard work and dedication to successfully complete any training programme.  However, if you believe you have the commitment, are friendly, confident and approachable and will get on well with our clients and the rest of the team then we would love to hear from you.

You will need to have at least a 2:1 degree in any discipline (obtained or predicted).
