Trainee Scheme

Looking to start a challenging and rewarding career in accountancy at one of the region’s most engaging practices?  We are now accepting applications for our trainee programme which commences in summer 2018.  Trainee vacancies are available at the following Ensors' offices:  Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Huntingdon, Ipswich and Saxmundham.

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. 

For the AAT trainee programme we would expect applicants to be non-graduates and require you to have (or be predicted) either:

A minimum of 2 A levels at Grade C or above (including Maths) OR the equivalent standard in a business related vocational qualification.  If you do not hold a Maths A level, then we expect a minimum attainment of Grade B/Grade 6 in GCSE Maths. 

Once AAT qualified you may go on to study for chartered qualifications.

As an applicant for the ACA (also known as ICAEW) 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(s) you are interested in (in order of preference if applicable) to or by post to Kathryn Mellon, HR Manager, at our Ipswich office.

The deadline for applications is 31 January 2018.  However if we receive a high volume of applications we reserve the right to withdraw the advertisement early, so please apply as soon as possible to secure your application.
