Graduate Trainee Accountant (ACA)


We are looking to recruit a number of talented graduates, who want to join an ambitious firm where you can build your skills whilst training to become a qualified Chartered Accountant.  We are looking for candidates with excellent academic qualifications as well as drive, ambition and a hunger for success.

In return, you’ll enjoy a competitive salary with increases based on exam success and an excellent study and benefits package. You will enter employment under a three year training contract and during this time you will gain a wide range of practical experience whilst studying towards your professional examinations, leading to the ICAEW (ACA) Chartered Accountant qualification.

At Gerald Edelman, we aspire to deliver genuinely exceptional relationships, experiences and advice.  Although we are a medium-sized professional services firm, we have a relaxed and open environment and encourage you to bring the real you to work.  Our partners want the best for our teams and so invest their time to develop the technical and practical skills of our people and to create a nurturing environment in which driven individuals will flourish.

Our wide range of specialisms means that our trainees gain experience across a variety of service lines and the opportunity to assist our diverse mix of clients, which includes sole traders, owner-managed businesses, within numerous sectors including property, financial services, marketing, IT, legal services, not-for-profit and charity, wholesale, retail, manufacturing and many more.  We place great importance on relationships and have a stable and loyal client base, where personal recommendations and referrals demonstrate the satisfaction and confidence that they have in the advice provided and in the teams supporting them.

Trainees attend regular external courses and as well as internally run seminars.  We actively monitor and encourage each individual’s progress through regular feedback and a formal appraisal system. We encourage our people to take full responsibility for their client work under the guidance of the partners and managers and to develop and to progress their career with us.

Our active social committee arranges numerous firm wide events throughout the year including the annual GE summer rally, bowling nights, pub quizzes, sporting events and much more.

If you have the qualities that we seek in our trainees and are looking to challenge the norm whilst building your career, then please apply today. 


Please note, you are applying for a place on SWAT UK’s graduate training programme at one of the firms for which we recruit (click here for a current list of the firms for which we recruit). Your application will be considered in the context of all firms and we will take into account your preferences.
