Are you an aspiring future business and finance leader who is looking to build a career with a dynamic and growing professional services firm? If so, you need to apply for Menzies LLP's AAT Apprenticeship which is now open for applications for our September 2020 intake. We have positions available across our offices in Surrey (Leatherhead, Woking and Egham) and Hampshire (Farnborough).
The AAT Programme
Our AAT Trainees form part of either Accounts or Audit teams and will work in small client assignment teams of three or four people with direct access to business owners and directors. You will be given the opportunity to gain a strong advisory insight into how organisations work and the challenges they face, developing your commercial awareness. As you progress you will be given more responsibility, so that by your second year, for example, you will already be supervising other trainees.
Your career with Menzies doesn't just stop once you complete your AAT qualification, you can be given the opportunity to progress onto further studies, such as the three-year ACA qualification.
We want our trainees to be our next generation of leaders! Everyone is different and we don't pigeon hole our trainees into one area of the business. So if you want to develop your career in a specific route whether that's consultancy, forensics, audit, tax, corporate finance, business valuations or accounts then our trainee programmes can offer you multiple pathways. Ongoing training and development is provided throughout your Menzies career as we are passionate about our people and ensuring they are continuously gaining new skills and expertise.
