Mentor support
Our mentor support will help you throughout your training contract and ensure that you receive the training you need. Your mentor will monitor your progress and identify any additional training needs you may have, and will also co-ordinate any additional exam support that you may require.

Our trainees are given the opportunity to work on a variety of clients, ranging from the smallest of sole traders and charities to major family-owned companies and not for profit organisations.

Each day is different and brings new challenges, whether it be: learning how to do your first accounts preparation exercise or corporation tax computation; preparing projections for a client’s business plan; or meeting a client to discuss their business and give tax planning advice.

Career opportunities
At the end of the training contract, some of our newly qualified CAs will prefer to progress within their current department, others may move into a different discipline. Whatever the decision, new challenges will lie ahead and we will offer education and support all the way.

We also appreciate that sometimes your ambitions and goals may lead you to opportunities further afield. We have former employees working around the world, including those who have moved to Bermuda!
