In September 2022, we welcomed one of our largest cohorts of trainees to the firm, including, for the first time, three modern apprentices who have joined straight from school to work in financial planning, insolvency, and HR departments.
The new recruits range in age from 18 to 33 and include career-changers, as well as school leavers from Grove and Morgan Academies in Dundee, Craigmount in Edinburgh and Dunbar Grammar school, and graduates from universities including Dundee, Heriot-Watt, Edinburgh, Abertay and St Andrew’s.
13 traineeships have been created in the firm’s Dundee office, six in Edinburgh and one AAT trainee in Aberdeen. Half of the cohorts have begun training with the growing audit department.
The intake increased our audit team by 10 and has added three trainees to our tax department, and the same number to the accounting business solutions team. A trainee payroll administrator has joined the firm, switching careers after more than 10 years in retail.
We are building good relationships with local schools in Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen which has resulted in making a number of direct entry offers this year allowing school leavers to earn while they learn and to qualify as Chartered Accountants after five years.
Our audit trainee programme is three years for graduate trainees, and five for school leavers to become fully qualified. The tax trainee programme is a structured framework which includes three years to qualify at ATT level (Association of Tax Technician), followed by a further two years to attain the CTA qualification (Chartered Tax Adviser). Modern apprentices qualify with an SVQ Level 6 in business administration after two years.
