Graduate Trainee Accountant (ACA)

Brebners is a 19 partner firm of Chartered Accountants and business advisors based in central London, with additional offices in Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells.

We are looking to recruit a number of graduates who aspire to become Chartered Accountants. We have high standards and are looking for candidates with excellent academic qualifications as well as drive, ambition and a thirst for success.    

In return, you’ll enjoy a competitive salary and an excellent package (with salary increases based on exam and work performances). There is also huge potential to progress within the firm. Add to this the opportunities and varied lifestyle that working in the Capital has to offer and it all adds up to a very rewarding opportunity.

Careers with Brebners

We are large enough to have experts able to provide advice across almost all accountancy and tax matters, whilst we still ensure the personal touch is maintained. Almost all of our senior staff have worked at Brebners for many years, and wherever possible there will be continuity of the staff servicing client needs.

Our clientele is extremely varied, ranging from multinational corporations to small businesses needing support skills and experience in many fields. 

Past students have gone on to become finance directors of public companies, partners in professional practices and used their knowledge to set up and run their own non-professional businesses. Whichever direction you choose, we feel that the training given here should give you a sound base from which to expand your knowledge and achieve your goals.  

The benefits of training with a medium-size firm like Brebners

Qualification with a medium sized firm opens up a wide spectrum of employment, not only within the firm, where partnership is of course a possibility.

Professional practices of all sizes welcome candidates with very good accounting experience matched by knowledge of large firm audit techniques and a large exposure to different types of business. In larger firms, trainees often spend much of their training confined to audit work because of the sheer scale of audit work. Audit work is just one small aspect of an assignment and in a medium size firm such as Brebners, you can benefit from having exposure to many different areas of client work, such as accountancy and tax.

With a medium size firm, you’ll also benefit from involvement from the firm’s Partners, who will take a direct interest in your development and support you through your training.
