This summer we are launching a Graduate Training Scheme, new to AFP Services
Over the past few years AFP have taken on several new graduates, who have worked their way through an informal graduate training programme. We've now decided to formalise this structure, taking inspiration from the ambitious graduates who have already started their careers with us, and open out this scheme to new graduates this July and September.
We have seen exponential growth recently, and to keep up with demand we need some extra hands! Our Financial Accounts and Management Accounts team need fresh support, and are looking for some ambitious people to bolster their ranks before climbing the ladder.
What to expect
Life at AFP is slightly different to that which you would expect at a "standard" Accountancy Practice. We're a bit of a lively bunch, who don't like to rest on our laurels too much and instead want to focus on growing the business. You see, that's what we're all about - GROWTH - our services are specially designed for ambitious businesses (of any size). We take that ambition and we turn it into growth. So if you have ambition, come and grow with us!

The Training Scheme
We are looking to take on some newbie accountants this summer, who will undergo a training programme that we estimate will take around 12-24 months to complete. This timescale will depend on your previous experience, but mostly on how quickly you pick things up. Whether you're just about to graduate in an Accountancy-related degree, or are perhaps working towards another subject but would like to explore a career in Accountancy, we would like to hear from you.
You will learn the basic skills of bookkeeping, supporting both our Financial Accounting and Management Accounting teams, gaining experience in working on sales and purchase ledgers; processing VAT returns; and working on payroll & bank reconciliations. This will give you the opportunity to learn the skills that make up an Accountant's bread and butter, as well as familiarising yourself with our dual system of Financial and Management Accounting. You will then specialise in either our Financial or Management teams where you will put your new skills to use.
How to Apply
Hope to hear from you soon!
