At Langard Lifford Hall, we appreciate that higher education is not for everyone. We therefore pride ourselves on offering apprenticeships for school leavers interested in a career in accountancy.

As part of our programme, we will give you real working experience in our accounts and audit department enabling you to undertake a wide variety of work for our diverse client base.

Our apprentices join on a two year programme that is partnered with a local college to enable our apprentices to study towards the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) professional qualification. This will generally involve you spending four days a week gaining valuable work based experience at Langard Lifford Hall with the other day being spent at a local college completing the relevant academic study towards the qualification.

On successful completion of AAT, our apprentices then have the opportunity to be offered a training contract to study towards the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) professional qualification.

What is on offer

  • Competitive starting salary, which will rise in line with regular reviews of both academic and work based experience
  • Entry into the firm’s pension scheme
  • Study support including day release for study at college towards AAT qualification
  • On successful completion of your AAT qualification, potential study support towards ACCA qualification.

Entry Requirements

  • Minimum 5 GCSE’s Grade A* – C including English Language and Mathematics
  • A client-focused attitude along with the interpersonal skills to build and maintain relationships with clients are prerequisites. You will be a team player with good time management skills. IT literate, you should be confident using Microsoft Office.
