Trainee roles

Study the ACA with a friendly, supportive team of people

We think our trainees are the best people to be around. Join us and you’ll be part of a brilliant group of trainees working alongside qualified staff who are committed to doing the best work for our clients. We place our values at the centre of how we manage our organisation and we value you as an individual who brings a unique perspective and approach.

We work with social purpose organisations – we think they are the best kind of client

All of our clients are not-for-profits – from household name charities, campaigning organisations, and community organisations, to commercially savvy membership bodies and health and social care providers operating in a highly competitive market. This means that during your training you gain exposure to charities, companies, and other organisational structures. We aim to play a full positive role in the voluntary sector and through our work we want to support the positive impact our clients make in the world.

Become a Chartered Accountant with the internationally recognised ACA qualification

Alongside your day job undertaking audit and advisory work, you will study for your ACA qualification with the support of our training provider. Our trainees have a great success rate in completing the ACA. Whether you want to stay in practice, develop a specialism around tax, or work towards becoming an FD, the qualification and your Sayer Vincent experience open doors.
