Recruitment for our Graduate ACA programme begins in September each year, with details of opportunities being announced through our website. You will be able to come and meet us at careers fairs in October and November at Bath, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, Plymouth, Southampton and UWE universities. This is where you will have a chance to meet various people from the firm including Partners, current trainees and newly qualified accountants to hear first-hand about life at PKF Francis Clark and what our recruitment process is like.
As you might expect for the region's largest independent accountancy practice, competition for places is intense, so we would advise you to submit your application at the first opportunity. Applications for this year's intake will open on 19 September 2016 and close on 14 November 2016. We will then be holding our regional assessment centres in late November for successful applicants.
We will aim to fill all of our roles during this time, but if we do have any remaining posts then we will re-open our applications in spring 2017.
Successful candidates will then be invited to a student welcome day, ahead of starting their training in September, or sometimes January of the following year. Successful students are rewarded with a permanent employment contract, a competitive starting salary, as well as various other benefits.
PKF Francis Clark is an ICAEW authorised training employer.
