Guaranteed work experience for young aspiring accountants, having our name on your CV will help you stand out for prospective employers and can help you move onto more senior roles.
Our aim is simply to eliminate the main reason why employers either don’t respond to your application or turn you down at the interview stage, which is nothing other than lack of experience.
We offer candidates the chance to actually get some hands on experience with our large client portfolio. We understand that once you’ve studied it’s very difficult to actually get into accounting without that credential experience. This is the very reason why we’ve tailored a programme that has proved to develop you in the most effective way and allows you to break into the sector. Some candidates would have graduated or studied a course in accounting and have ended up working in a role completely different to what they’ve invested in.
We also offer an apprenticeship where we work very closely with candidates, the benefit of this is that we guarantee to get you a role before 6 months. The first thing we do with apprentices-es is offer the successful candidate a contract to fulfill our promise of finding you a role and at the same time protect files as you will start offsite.
This is a fast paced programme as it leads to a role so the candidate must have the ability to execute accounts with little support. Starting salaries have ranged from £18k+ we focus on the key requirements and cater to your cv and then arrange interviews with selected companies. If you are interested in becoming an apprentice please contact us.
We understand the frustration when you have put yourself in debt, spent a considerable amount of time studying and then are unable to secure a role in the very thing you’ve put the most amount of money and time into. The amount of students who contact us and state “how are we suppose to gain experience if employers aren’t prepared to offer us the opportunity to do so”. Which we couldn’t agree with more however we also understand what employers are saying which is “we want to see more to an individual than just qualifications”. We bridge that gap and give you that experience showing employers you are capable of executing accounting duties.
There are also a number of you who’ve graduated or completed a course some time ago and have ended up in roles not related to accounting. We would like to give the opportunity to every candidate but due to the large number of candidates we are unable to accept everyone.
We have also helped those coming with experience from abroad by reflecting UK experience on their CV followed by referencing. We speak to a number of candidates coming from, Asia, Europe, China and Africa who have a vast amount of experience but are not getting responses as the experience abroad is not transitional.
Those with international experience get a role the quickest as they know how to execute accounting tasks all they need is us to add that experience and referencing which enhances the CV, if you fall into this category we give you a senior accountant title with this reflection your CV it increases significant interest from employers.
So how does it work?
We outsource some of our client accounts to you which will enable you to reflect that on your CV, you will receive a number of accounts covering a variation of duties. As we have grown due to the number of graduates coming on board to build experience we are now working with external accountants to ensure your accounts are filed correctly. We also do this as you have no experience and we do not want to jeopardise our relationship with our clients by supplying information that maybe inaccurate.
As opposed to a volunteering role where employers know that you are not fully responsible for the role and is generally not praised. With us you will have the title Trainee Accountant, date reflection of accounts, CV update outlining duties you are covering or are yet to cover along with a reference. All this enables our candidates to get into a role pretty quickly as it equips them to deal with all the problems they face after completing qualifications.
We are not a training company so we expect you to start working with our client’s as soon as you can. We also understand that you may be a bit out of touch due to the fact that you were unable to secure an accounting role right away. So in that aspect we do provide some training in Sage, Bookkeeping and help you towards your ACCA.
