Work experience

If you want to learn more about a career in accountancy, Larking Gowen has opportunities for 1-2 week's work experience placements at some of our offices. We'll make sure you spend your time valuably and come away with a good idea of what the business of accountancy involves. Some of our present staff started on work experience with us, so you never know what opportunities you might be opening up.

Ideally, you'll be on target to achieve grade Cs or above in your A levels. Graduate level entrants need to be expecting at least a 2:1.

To register your interest for work experience please send us an email at workexperience@larking-gowen.co.uk , detailing what dates you would like to do work experience also, please include a CV if you have one, and tell us a bit about you and why you would like to do work experience with us.

School leavers

Every year we welcome A level students. You will be enrolled on a Level 4 Apprenticeship which will develop a wide range of business and personal skills, work-based learning and professional qualifications. We offer AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) and ATT (Association of Tax Technicians) Level 4 apprenticeships.

Your initial period of study and work experience will give you a good knowledge of various aspects of accountancy including auditing, accounts preparation, bookkeeping, personal and corporate tax and business development. You'll be able to earn while you learn with hands-on experience of the business. In addition, we'll give you paid time off for study and flexible working, with the opportunity to progress further in the business once you've qualified, and for onward study to become a fully qualified Chartered (ACA).

We’re looking for talented people who want to be a part of something bigger who share our vision and values. You must be a great relationship builder who can inspire people around you, who is confidential and approachable with strong communication skills and excellent numerical skills.

We have a flexible approach to academic entry requirements, depending on which area of the business you are interested in. We’ll consider your academic achievements, but your strengths, motivations and connection with us and our values are more important. We’re looking for people with a broad range of interests and experiences.

Graduates

Every year we welcome graduates on ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) training contracts. You will be enrolled on a Level 7 Apprenticeship and your initial period of study and work experience will give you a strong background in essential areas of accountancy. You'll get hands-on experience and be paid while you learn. In addition, we'll give you paid time-off to study and flexible working until you've completed your training.

Once you qualify, you'll have the opportunity to take up exciting challenges as you grow your career within the business. There are also  opportunities for further study to develop a specialism.
