Trainee Scheme

Looking to start a challenging and rewarding career in accountancy at one of the region’s most engaging practices?  

By joining us as a Trainee Accountant you will be able to study for professional qualifications whilst also gaining vital hands-on, task-focussed work experience in our busy, growing, multi-disciplinary practice.

As an AAT trainee you will follow formal training through an apprenticeship framework for the AAT qualification.  We would expect applicants to be non-graduates and require you to have (or be predicted) at least 2 A-levels at grade C or above, including Maths.  If Maths is not one of your A-levels we expect at least a B grade in GCSE Maths.  Once AAT qualified you may go on to study for chartered qualifications.

As an applicant for the ACA or ACCA trainee programme we would expect you to be a graduate with a minimum 2:1 degree.

All trainees are supported throughout their professional studies.  You will be closely supervised and your work will be regularly reviewed by more senior staff.  We foster a collaborative and agile culture and can offer you a rotation across a number of our departments during your training period.  The firm will pay all tuition and Institute fees and you will also be entitled to paid time off for your studies.

If you are interested earning while you learn at Ensors Chartered Accountants please submit your CV together with a covering letter explaining which location you are interested in to or by post to Kathryn Mellon, HR Manager, at our Ipswich office.

Please note: The application process for the AAT and ACA/ACCA 2017 trainee programme has now closed.  We are not yet accepting trainee applications for 2018.  The application process for summer 2018 entry will open in late autumn 2017.  An announcement will be made on this page when the process opens.
