Accountancy Apprenticeships

Our Accountancy Apprenticeships

We’re passionate about giving young people the opportunity to get into fantastic careers. Our accountancy apprenticeships will give you a real flavour of accountancy, you’ll also gain practical, hands-on experience across different departments of the business. This will not only give you a well-rounded knowledge of accountancy as a whole, but it will also help you to decide which areas you’re more suited to. This varied experience will help you to decide on which direction you’d like to take your career in. Just some of the areas you could be working in during your apprenticeship include Accounts, Personal Taxation, Payroll and Bookkeeping (as well as other, more specialised fields).

We fully fund all your training as you work towards becoming AAT or ATT qualified. After your apprenticeship we will continue to fund your training as you work towards becoming ACCA or CTA qualified, should you wish to.

Why an Apprenticeship?

If you’re a recent school, college or sixth form leaver, our apprenticeships are perfect for you. Our accountancy apprenticeships are a great way to get your foot on the career ladder – and earn money whilst you learn. It is our opinion, that in this industry at least, apprenticeships provide a real alternative to university.

  • We hire apprentices with the full intention of retaining them for a long-term career. 

There is an opportunity for real progression here at Aston Shaw, and an apprenticeship is a great first step. You might like to read about Daniel Overton’s career with Aston Shaw. He joined as an apprentice and became a Director in just ten years.

No formal qualifications or experience are required to begin an apprenticeship with us, as all training will be provided. When considering the eligibility of candidates for our apprenticeship scheme, we’ll be more interested in your personality and willingness to learn. So if you are interested in one of our apprenticeship schemes, our advice to you is to make your application reflect your character. We’ve written a blog on how to write a great cover letter that should help you with your application.

Best of all, our accountancy apprenticeship schemes are available across all six of our offices: Cambridge, Dereham, Great Yarmouth, Ipswich, King’s Lynn and Norwich.
