Barnes Roffe LLP
graduate scheme

Trainee Tax Accountant

Job description

Our graduate accountant training scheme is designed with the specific purpose of giving you the best of both worlds, fast access to credible learning opportunities and the consideration to allow you to focus on what’s important – your studies, while at the same time offering hands on client experience.

We want to free you from the excessive burdens that can accompany some graduate training schemes and offer you the means to successfully pass your exams.

Our trainees receive support throughout the training programme and beyond. At the end of the three year programme, our trainees are experienced accountants with exceptional accounting and tax knowledge and skills.

Development and career progression

More than half of the partners began their journey as graduate trainee accountants within our firm, working their way up from trainee to senior to manager to practice partner. The key to their success has been the training and support provided throughout their career, with the knowledge that through our graduate training programme they could succeed and that within 10 years they could be partners.

What we are looking for

Ambitious, hard-working and driven individuals who can communicate with colleagues and more importantly our clients. These are all qualities held by a Barnes Roffe accountancy trainee.


Three ‘A’ levels at grades B or above and a 2.1 degree.
