Realise your potential and enjoy a wealth of opportunities in a graduate role at Sagars.

Opportunities exist in both our business and private client teams.  Successful applicants will gain quality work experience with us whilst studying for the ACA qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) under a Level 7 Accounting Professional Apprenticeship. Candidates taking up a predominantly tax-based role within our private client team will be supported to achieve the joint ACA/CTA qualification.

Regardless of which team you join, you’ll have your own mentor and you can expect the full support of our award-winning team throughout your training contract. You’ll get the very best technical training and early responsibility with practical experience across a wide range of audit, accounting and tax work in a progressive firm that’s embracing the latest technological developments and is a recognised cloud accounting leader.

The average length of service across our team is 11 years – a testament to the flexible and supportive working environment that we’ve created. Two of our current partners and many of our senior managers joined us as graduates – proof of the excellent career prospects that exist for the right people.

To guarantee the very best technical and personal levels of service, we’re looking for up to six high calibre graduates with the drive and personality to help us meet our clients’ needs. Competition is tough and you’ll need a minimum ABB at A level (or equivalent) and a 2:1 degree classification (in any discipline) to be considered.
