Not all great careers start with university and a degree…

Apply for an accounting apprenticeship at Sagars and get paid to train for your professional qualification while you gain quality work experience as part of our award-winning team.

Following our recent merger, Sagars is continuing to grow, so we’re seeking high calibre individuals to join our AAT apprenticeship scheme in Summer 2022 with opportunities in our audit, accounting / cloud accounting and tax teams.

The opportunity

With the support of your own mentor and our 100-strong Leeds-based team, you’ll get the very best technical training to help you complete your apprenticeship programme. Alongside your work experience, you’ll study for the AAT level 3 and level 4 qualification with paid day release study leave and the support of an apprenticeship talent coach to guide you. If you impress, we could support you through further professional qualifications to become a Chartered Accountant (ACA), a Chartered Certified Accountant (ACCA) or a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).

About you

To make it onto the Sagars team you’ll need to be a natural relationship builder and an enthusiastic team player with energy, commitment, a thirst for knowledge and a good sense of humour – if this sounds like you then you’ll fit right in, and that matters to us as much as your academic achievements.

To guarantee the very best technical and personal levels of service, we’re looking for people with the drive and personality to help us meet our clients’ needs. Competition is tough and you’ll need minimum predicted A level grades of BBB (or equivalent) and 5 GCSE’s including English and Maths at grade 6.

What we offer

  • paid study leave
  • paid overtime
  • agile, flexible and variable working arrangements

Perhaps more important than all of that is that two of our current partners, two of our directors and lots of our senior managers joined us as trainees – proof of the excellent career prospects that exist for the right people.

How to apply

Sagars is a professional practice of the future, but we’ve been in business long enough to know that the game is won or lost at the recruitment stage, so we only hire the very best people and we play to our strengths. Everyone has an equally important role to play – it’s not about who you are, but what you do that counts, and we’ll reward you for it.
