Randall & Payne Accountants Cheltenham

We are now recruiting trainees

We are proud to be a training firm, recognised and approved by the ACA, ACCA, and AAT, and each year we commit to recruiting a number of trainees.

We have the exciting opportunity to recruit talent from those just starting out in their careers. Our trainees either join us straight from A levels or after university. Most will train for technical roles like accountants and auditors, but we also have a trainee in our admin team. We feel that this ongoing commitment to bringing in new trainees allows us to play our part in the wider community, as well as ensuring we continue to build our already talented workforce, sustaining and growing our business.We offer an excellent training programme and many of our past trainees have gone on to achieve great things. Some are now partners and managers, whereas others are well on their way to developing successful careers here, making a real and valuable contribution to the business and adding value for our clients. Last year Gina Gardner, Trainee Corporate Tax Accountant, was awarded ‘AAT Trainee of the Year’.Our differentiator to other training firms is our encouragement of early client contact, developing skills and confidence for the trainee. We also support all our staff by providing wider opportunities for regular personal development and non-technical learning.As well as a great training package, our trainees have the opportunity to undertake meaningful work in a friendly environment, where they are valued and supported. We believe in fun, a healthy work-life balance and wellbeing as much as hard work and delivering excellence to our clients.Find out more on our Apprentices & Graduates page.Vacancies for our 2018 trainee intake:
