Graduate training programme (ACA)

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

Successful candidates will gain quality work experience with us whilst studying for the ACA qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). Throughout your training contract you’ll have your own mentor and you can expect the full support of our award-winning team. 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 which embraces the latest technological developments and is a recognised leader in cloud accounting.

The average length of service across our team is 13 years - 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 of 320 UCAS points and a 2:1 degree classification (in any discipline) to be considered.

We offer paid study leave, a standard 35-hour week, generous flexi time arrangement, pension scheme contributions and a competitive salary - and we pay all course and exam fees.

Our 2018 graduate recruitment is now closed. We expect to start looking for our 2019 graduates in September of this year and will update this information at that time.

Undergraduate summer placement – accountancy

If you’re wondering whether a career in accountancy is for you, doing a summer placement is a great idea. We’re on the look-out for an undergraduate to join our award-winning business client team in June 2018. We’ll pay you for your time, it’ll look great on your CV and you’ll get a real insight into what being an accountant is all about. Perhaps even better than all of that, we recruit new graduates every year so impress us on your placement and this could be a foot in the door for your long-term career with us. The average length of service at Sagars is around 13 years… we figure we must be doing something right!
