Decided against university? Then join us after your A-levels or equivalent and start earning while you work towards a professional accounting qualification.
By choosing this route you're likely to gain your professional qualification faster than your friends who go to university. Our Higher apprenticeship (CI) could be right for you; working in either Advisory, Assurance or Tax.
Our introductory training will give you a good grounding in book-keeping, and auditing or tax specific skills, while improving your general business awareness. And the learning doesn't stop there. Formal study, on-the-job experience and coaching from colleagues mean you'll continually pick up new skills and develop your business knowledge. Together with your personal coach, you'll review regular feedback on your performance and use it to keep your career moving forward.
Students joining the Higher apprenticeship (CI) route in Assurance or Tax can expect to qualify as either a Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) or Chartered Accountant (ACA) within three years. Tax specialists can then go onto studying towards a specific Tax Adviser qualification.
You'll begin by tackling basic sections of client audits, carrying out specific checks on financial records and making sure everything adds up. You'll also test controls - systems companies put in place to prevent errors and to detect fraud. Perhaps the best thing is the variety of teams and clients you'll work with and the diversity of projects you'll be involved in. You'll also spend much of your time on site with clients.
As a Higher apprenticeship (CI) Tax student you will be more office based, but you'll still enjoy plenty of interaction with clients in meetings and over the phone. You'll support busy client teams advising their clients on issues surrounding paying and minimising their tax bills. This could mean doing anything from carrying out technical research to attending meetings with senior staff and drafting client correspondence.
Of course, for both roles, there'll be some typical office duties too. But as you gain experience we'll trust you with more responsibility and challenges.
Whichever route you choose expect study leave to attend college plus plenty of support from our Professional Qualifications team. You'll have to do some study in your own time too, but all your hard work will be rewarded when you get your qualification.
We are looking for exceptional A-Level school leavers, with a minimum of 112 UCAS points.
