The position is for a Level 3 AAT apprentice, however, for the right candidate, we are happy to offer a Level 2 Apprenticeship as well. 

You will have the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience from day one. A system of continuous feedback and on-the-job training on a one-to-one basis ensures that you make steady progress, building on your experience from one assignment to the next.

Duties will include:

  • Bookkeeping for clients on computerised cloud accounts systems (Xero, Sage, QuickBooks, etc.)
  • Assisting with payroll and VAT returns
  • Preparing accounts schedules on excel
  • Mailing correspondence to clients
  • And any other duties that one would expect in a busy accounting practice

Ideally, we would like the successful candidate’s start date to be as soon as possible following conclusion of the interview cycle, however, for the right candidate this is negotiable.
