Our philosophy regarding recruitment is that we look to employ people who will hopefully spend a number of years with us building their careers.

There are a number of employees who have been with us over 10 years, and in fact quite a few of our management team have been with Sargeant Partnership LLP since they left school.

Perhaps most notably is one of the Partners, Joanne Brown. who joined the firm from school.


With an expanding service and client base there are a number of career pathways you could explore.

We are an approved training firm for the following:

  • ICAEW – Institute of Chartered Accountants In England And Wales
  • ACCA – The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants
  • AAT – The Association of Accounting Technicians
  • ATT – The Association of Tax Technicians
  • CTA – Chartered Tax Advisors

We are always keen to hear from candidates who are looking for a new challenge or to start a career in Accountancy or Tax and offer the following Apprenticeships and Training Programs.

  • Book-keeping Trainees – Apprenticeship in AAT
  • Accounts Trainees – AAT and then Apprenticeship in ICAEW and CTA combined Pathway
  • Tax Trainees – Apprenticeship in ATT and then if applicable the CTA

The length of our training contracts depends on what path you take. During this time you will receive Study Leave as your course/(s) dictate, practical experience in all areas of our client work, and study funding support.

We use some of the best colleges available and our students have an excellent exam success rate.

For school leavers we look for a minimum of 5 GCSE’s grades A* to C for the AAT and for all other career paths we require 2 A Levels grade C and above, or equivalent.

We also consider more mature students.


Our recruitment is not limited to Trainees. We have openings for more experienced or qualified professionals and the same philosophy applies. We hope those that join us will form their career with us. We are very much a team and we look to have continuity both for ourselves and our clients.
