Accountancy Apprenticeship

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Our successful apprenticeship scheme will give you the opportunity to make a real difference to our huge range of clients but also to the nation. We enable and support crucial economic and social changes needed to improve financial management and the way vital public services are delivered to millions of people every day.

In a nutshell, we help the nation spend wisely.

By joining us and achieving a prestigious qualification as a chartered accountant, you’ll have a rewarding and fascinating role. You will develop your skills as a professional, a manager and a leader and be equipped for a fantastic career.

Our crucial role in holding government to account is mirrored by the fact that our leader is appointed by Her Majesty the Queen. In addition to offering a unique insight into government operations, we also offer an array of vibrant social and training events throughout the year.

So come, join us and be part of the bigger picture at the National Audit Office (NAO).

Responsibilities

Alongside working towards your Chartered Accountancy qualification, you’ll work with a wide range of clients, including central and local government. You’ll start out as a team member supporting our core financial audits and will gradually get to work on bigger audits and more complex projects, taking the lead as you develop your skills and confidence.

Whilst working mainly on financial audits, you’ll also have the opportunity to be involved in a range of our other work – including support for Parliament, investigations, and our larger value for money studies and programmes which result in high-profile reports to Parliament that often make the headlines.
