About the role

At Buzzacott we are committed to attracting and retaining the very best graduates to enable us to achieve our vision of being a first class consulting Firm in our selected markets, with a reputation for integrity, client focus, exceptional service, specialist knowledge and approachability.

We are now recruiting for our January 2019 intake of graduate audit trainees on our Charity and Not-for-Profit Team. There is the option for a number of successful candidates to commence employment earlier in September/October 2018 and start their training in January 2019.

Buzzacott offer graduates a contract of employment that includes a comprehensive, fully supervised training programme for the ACA qualification which extends over a period of 36 months. A closely monitored and structured programme of tuition is provided by a top firm of external tutors. Training consists of a combination of courses at the tutors’ offices, private study and regular tests, as well as on the job training. Paid study leave is granted and course and examination fees are paid for first attempts.

From the moment your training begins you will be assigned to a Manager who will act as your mentor. They will monitor and support your professional and personal development and monitor your ICAEW exam success. Other partners and senior staff are also available to discuss any problems that may arise and offer guidance; in addition the tutors at SWATuk provide support and counselling.

As a single-office practice you will get to know everybody in the Firm and have the opportunity to shine from day one.

Our requirements

The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate the following skills:

We are looking for graduates with inquiring minds and a sociable disposition, problem solvers with high standards, who will thrive in a meritocracy.

Candidates must have:

  • Or expect to obtain a 2.1 degree in any discipline
  • A minimum of 300 UCAS Tariff points (120 using the new tariff)*
  • Excellent GCSE's with a minimum of a B grade in English and Maths, or equivalent
  • The right to work in the UK without restrictions for the duration of their training contract

Who are Buzzacott?

At Buzzacott, nearly 400 people work together under one roof at our office in St Paul's London, making us the largest single office accountancy firm in the UK.

Trust underpins the culture of Buzzacott, together with specialist expertise, approachability and exceptional client service. Trust is more than providing the best expertise. It’s about character and integrity. The people you trust have values that match your own. Because of this, cultural fit is an important consideration when choosing people to join our team.

We’re big enough to display deep knowledge over a range of specialisms, but small enough to understand the power of personal connections. We long ago moved from being accountants to being advisers and are now partners to our clients. In fact, we believe that what we do is as much about relationships as expertise, so we’re looking for individuals who are prepared to look beyond the numbers, to see the people and stories behind them.

The importance of relationships is equally important between colleagues. We expect our teams to collaborate with each other to successfully operate across departments. It means externally we support the whole of the client rather than a fragment and internally we all benefit from shared experience and knowledge.

Equal opportunities

Buzzacott is an equal opportunities employer and values the diversity of our workforce and the knowledge of our people.

It is the Firm’s policy to employ the best qualified individual for the particular vacancy and provide equal opportunity for the advancement of employees including promotion and training and not to discriminate against any person because of race, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, belief, marital status, disability or age.
