As a result of this, we represent a wide range of clients from health organisations, local councils to charities, SME’s, partnerships and sole traders.
The graduate experience
We recruit up to 7 graduates a year. Graduates that join us can undertake either ACA or ACCA training. Typically, this training lasts between 3 to 4 years. As well as receiving practical on the job training, you will also attend leading firms of accountancy tutors to prepare you for the examinations of the professional accountancy bodies.
As we work for both the public and private sector, training will range from preparing small sets of accounts for small organisations to providing consultancy advice and services specifically to public sector organisations with a turnover up to £800m.
The majority of our work is undertaken at client locations, which can be anywhere in the UK and Europe, although some of the work on smaller clients is office based.
We only recruit to senior management positions from staff having trained and qualified with us. So after you have qualified we will continue to work with you to develop the management skills and technical knowledge required of a true senior finance business consultant.
As a small close knit office, social activities are regularly organised by different members of staff. In addition to this, each quarter the office gets together to discuss events of the previous 3 months, the strategy for the next 3 months, as well as having a good night out (paid for by the Partners!!).
Further information about the office, partners and their expertise can be found on the UHY Hacker Young web site.
