Graduate Apprentice RGU-ICAS 2024

We are a progressive practice based in Fife and have a growing client base throughout the country, ranging from individuals and family businesses to professional partnerships and commercial companies. We like to get to know our clients and their business so that we become part of their team - always aiming to exceed their expectations.
We offer a high level of client and partner contact to create an interesting and varied training experience. You will be exposed to all aspects and areas of working in an accounting practice, and provided with various opportunities to develop your technical skills in accounting and taxation, as well as your soft skills of communication and team work.

About the Training
The graduate apprenticeship is an accredited work-based learning programme combining an honours degree from RGU with the globally recognised ICAS Chartered Accountant qualification over a 5-year period (as opposed to a traditional 7-year period). This is mainly completed through supported online learning with some in-person university days.
Academic study is combined with the practical experience you obtain from working in the office to give a better understanding of how the knowledge you obtain is applied in practice. Support is provided within the office primarily via your mentor.
This role involves working a full-time job (Monday to Thursday 8am to 5.30pm), while also studying in a full-time course for their honours degree and professional qualifications.
Our firm has successfully supported a Graduate Apprentice who is currently in their final year and would be happy for interested candidates to have a discussion with them about what the course entails as well as ask any questions they may have.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and hard-working individual to join our team who meets the entry requirements and is able to communicate well
