About us

Do you want to join a modern and dynamic firm? UHY Hacker Young are a progressive group of chartered accountants that have a strong national and international network; we are currently ranked top 15 in the country.

Our mid-tier size means that every year we select just a small number of talented trainees to help grow our business. Each trainee is given responsibility from day one and has the chance to stretch their talents, and experience a wide diversity of work.

Our trainees deal with a variety of clients, from the very small companies, through to what we call the ‘dynamic mid-market’ businesses and AIM and fully listed public entities.

As a group, the recruitment experience may vary from office to office however we all share one vision and the same values.
