INDUSTRY: Finance

At SWAT UK, we recruit for a range of prestigious firms of Chartered Accountants based in London and the South East.  You don't need a degree in accountancy or any accountancy experience as we provide you with all the training and support you need. Successful candidates will receive a 3 - 5 year training contract, whilst you study towards the ICAEW (ACA) Chartered Accountant qualification.  Your study support package alone is worth £15k. Add to this a starting salary from £22k (with year-on-year salary increases based on exam and work performances) and it all adds up to a very rewarding opportunity.  

The firms we recruit for range from 4 - 19 partners in size, meaning there is huge scope for you to progress within the firm. What's more, there are huge advantages of working with a medium-sized firm. You'll gain exposure from working with a wide variety of clients, enjoy real responsibility from an early stage and have opportunities to work closely with the firm's partners. Indeed, many graduates who have come through our programme have gone onto become partners themselves.  

So if you have (or are expecting) a 2:2 degree or above in ANY subject, apply today and let us help you develop a successful career in accountancy.

Minimum Entry Requirements
> 2:2 degree or above in ANY degree subject
> 300+ UCAS points at A2 / A Level or equivalents
> GCSE English and Maths (grade B or above)

We're looking for articulate, confident, intelligent graduates with strong academic qualifications and a range of transferable skills. Accountancy is a people-focused profession. Numeracy is expected, but you must also be able to communicate confidently with colleagues and clients, as well as being able to:
> organise yourself and your workload;
> balance the competing demands on your time; and
> take personal responsibility for the development of your career

Case study
Joe Kinton (Partner): Shipleys Chartered Accountants and Professional Business Advisers

"My wish was to work somewhere large enough to offer variety, opportunities, and excellent training and development provisions, yet small enough to feel actively involved from an early stage of my career, which then led me to select a medium sized firm.

My experience since has definitely backed up this decision. I have worked with a very wide variety of clients ranging from a Formula 1 race team to City stockbrokers and fund managers. I also spent five months on secondment to another firm in Melbourne, gaining international experience but most importantly enjoying the Australian lifestyle!

In addition, the firm have shown the great opportunities which exist for career advancement. My role over the years has changed enormously: audit junior; audit senior; manager; and now partner. This all adds to the variety even when working on the same client.

Yes, accountancy is hard work. Yes, you'll need to be committed to get through the study. But it's an excellent career, the rewards are good, and I've even had some fun and made some great friends along the way!"
