Our graduate ACA programme fast tracks you to success, moving you from graduate to qualified chartered accountant in three years. Joining Moore Kingston Smith on our ACA level 7 apprenticeship training scheme means you will receive fantastic training that allows you to experience working in audit, accountancy and taxation for a variety of businesses across a wide range of sectors including technology, charity, healthcare and renewable energy.
We are an ACA accredited training firm and we are committed to giving each person that joins us first class training in a personal and friendly working environment.
Right from the start of your training contract you will be working with clients, getting to know their business and understanding their challenges. You will be encouraged to take responsibility early on in your training contract and you will be exposed to all aspects of a job.
Your experience will be varied; sometimes you will be working on projects lasting a few days, other times a few weeks. You will have the opportunity to work on company audits, charity audits and to work with our tax team. Whatever you are doing, you will always be making a direct impact on your client’s business.
As well as learning on the job, you’ll complete a comprehensive apprenticeship training programme that will equip you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours you need to excel in the role.
We’re looking for people who are adaptable, enjoy building relationships and are passionate about developing themselves.
You can apply if you:
- have an undergraduate degree (2:1 or above) and 112 UCAS points from three A-levels (or equivalent)
- will be available to work from September 2021
- have permission to work in the UK by September 2021
- are eligible to complete the level 7 apprenticeship. You will not be eligible if you have completed a Master's in an Accountancy related subject.
To avoid bias, your application will be reviewed question by question rather than as one whole application and so you need to ensure that your answers make sense on their own. For example, you will need to avoid saying 'as stated in my previous example'.
