Our Opportunities

Graduate Opportunities

After a recent routine inspection Kevin Butler, a senior training and CPD manager at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, gave us this glowing testimonial:-

“Congratulations for maintaining and controlling the training process in such a superb manner. Your students, both in terms of records and exam success, are a credit to the profession.”

Ryecroft Glenton is one of the largest independent firms of Chartered Accountants in the North East region. The firm has 15 partners and approximately 80 staff, the majority of whom are based in our principal office in Jesmond, within walking distance of the City Centre.

We seek to recruit at least two Chartered Accountancy trainees each summer who will benefit from the broad range of work and close client contact which is achieved by working with owner-managed businesses. Our clients range from small local businesses, requiring our help with basic accounting and tax return work, to sizeable companies, including some located overseas, needing assistance with acquisitions and disposals, tax planning and varied consultancy advice.

For the duration of the training contract, our trainees are based in a dedicated, modern and well-equipped training area where they are given the opportunity to prepare clients’ accounts from start to finish, to prepare income tax computations and to assist in audits of organisations based both in the North East and nationally.

Beyond qualification, you will continue to deal with a wide range of clients including those in the specialist areas in which we operate, for example, pension scheme audits, charities, professional partnerships and high net worth individuals. Interfacing with these and other specialisms will allow you to continue developing your personal, technical, commercial and business skills with Ryecroft Glenton.

Tuition for all the major accountancy and taxation exams is provided by means of day release or linked self-study with a national training provider. Progress on courses is closely monitored and supported by the partners. All staff participate in ongoing training via external courses and internal seminars. We adopt a sensible approach to balancing your work and study commitments and this has a positive impact on our exam pass rates.

Whether you are a native of the North East or you are thinking of settling here for social and lifestyle reasons, you will have heard about Newcastle’s vibrant night life and cultural scene. Accountancy trainees in the region enjoy a lively student society whose events are always well attended. Within Ryecroft Glenton, there are regular social events and a number of sports teams giving opportunities to participate in competitive events and network with other professionals.

Our graduate vacancies for September 2018 have now been filled.
