There is no interest to pay.

Can I get job after completion of Accounting training?

We also help candidates find a job by offering CV Sessions and mock interviews.

The Practical Accountancy training is suitable for candidates from all different background of knowledge.

Having accounting experience can give you an advantage but not necessary. However, we expect our candidate to have basic accounting knowledge.

+Where I get the practical experience. Is it separate from the training?
The good news is once you finish any eligible Practical Accountancy training you will be allocated to our sister firm Osborne Certified Accountants where you will be taking  a role of Accounts Assistant for three months, which is also counted towards practical experience as you will be working on real client data, which sometime is a requirement for professional accountancy bodies (e.g. ACCA, AAT, CIMA)
+Do you offer job here in your firm?
When we have vacancies available we prefer our students who have performed well.

+How long is the job placement and how many days a week?

Job placement is offered 3 months initially(Once a week) but can be extended further depending on performance of the candidate.

You have to go through an assessment before extending further. Candidates are promised only 3 months. Further extension depends on both party agreements.

+What is the difference between job placement and training?
During job placement you will perform tasks with real client data, whereas the training will take place in a classroom environment.

+Do I get paid for job placement?
The job placement is voluntary, it is assumed to be unpaid.

+Where does the job placement take place?
The job placement will take place in Osborne Certified Accountants at the Canary Wharf Branch. Alternatively you can also join the Job Placement remotely by working from home where all Data and Instructions are communicated online.
