Due to the growing demand for our services, we have a trainee accountant job vacancy at Alterledger. The position offers study support and a route to gaining a permanent position as a qualified accountant in a modern accountancy practice. It is expected that the trainee would complete a qualification with CIMA or ACCA.
Whether you want to work in practice, in industry or develop your career as an entrepreneur, an understanding of business and finance is crucial to your future success. The graduate trainee programme at Alterledger will give you valuable real life experience of a modern accountancy practice.
Your training at Alterledger will introduce you to a range of clients in the creative industries and service sectors from start-ups to more established companies. A chartered management accountant goes beyond the numbers and retrospective reporting. As a trusted advisor to businesses, you can further your own career at the same time as making a positive difference to others.
The professional CIMA qualification is a globally recognised brand with 87% of employers saying they would pay a premium to have a CGMA work for them according to the 2014 CGMA Brand Index, AICPA/CIMA/Applied Research and Consulting LLC.
It is more important that you can demonstrate a desire to qualify as an accountant than you have an accountancy degree. A Chartered Management Accountant is expected to bring context and insight to financial reports so a degree in an unrelated discipline can actually be an advantage.
Alterledger is a modern accountancy practice. Gone are the days of paper files and manual calculations. Alterledger has embraced cloud computing drawing on the resources of Xero, Spotlight, Futrli, Dropbox, Slack and Office 365 to operate a paperless office. As part of a small practice you will be able to make a significant contribution to the company and suggest your own ideas for improvement.
The trainee accountant job is being recruited through Adopt an Intern, which specialises in graduate recruitment in addition to internships.
Shortlisted candidates will be offered an interview on Tuesday 25th September 2018 at Legal House, 101 Gorbals Street, Glasgow G5 9DW.
