We are proud to have been awarded approved employer status with both The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) and The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) (Platinum Level). This status is awarded when employers can demonstrate active support of continuing professional development (CPD) for team members, both pre and post qualified.

Rewards & Benefits

We continuously review our remuneration package for trainees. You will initially commence employment on a competitive salary, with future increases commensurate to your exam success, personal performance, and that of the firm itself.
