Graduates

ACCA Programme

CBW has successfully recruited its first Graduates to enrol on our ACCA Graduate Training programme and become ACCA Chartered Accountants within Corporate Recovery and Insolvency. These positions are an excellent opportunity for new graduates like yourself to kick-start your career. Should you be successful in securing this place, you can expect to gain accounting experience across a broad range of clients covering multiple business sectors.

Although for the first 3 years you would work closely with the other graduates on the ACA training programme your workload would vary, the role is providing support to our Senior Insolvency Administrators, Insolvency Practitioners (IPs) and Partners with assistance on case work and after a short period of time you would have the responsibility of managing small corporate and personal insolvency cases yourself, with the support of the team. You will be required to take 14 courses in total, 3 knowledge based, 6 skilled base, 3 professional essentials and finally you pick two from a choice of 4 papers .

You would be involved in the whole process from pre-appointment work through to closing cases, a true ‘cradle to grave’ role, from the off you will have the opportunity to report findings and variances and communicate these with Partners and team members.

You will be working closely with Partners and staff to provide clients with a personal and professional service. The cases are varied with a sway towards corporate: – Administrations, CVLs, MVLs and Bankruptcy and the team work quickly and close quickly so the work is fast paced and very interesting.

Once you have attained your professional qualification it opens up a wide range of further opportunities to progress and develop your career.

Do I qualify for the ACCA programme?

In order to apply for either of these opportunities, you must have a minimum of 280 UCAS points (or equivalent) all gained in the same exam period and excluding General Studies, and have or are expecting to achieve a 2:1 or higher. Alternatively, you may already be AAT qualified.
