So, you’ve set your sights on becoming an Accountant, but you’re unsure about how to land the role you really want?

George Hay Chartered Accountants, with offices in Biggleswade, Letchworth and Huntingdon, have been established for over 75 years and in that time, have helped many ambitious school-leavers to kickstart their careers early.

They are given the opportunity to work full-time, earning a salary, whilst studying towards a fully-funded professional qualification.

Many who have previously trained and qualified at George Hay have since gone on to become managers and even Partners in the firm.

George Hay firmly supports ongoing professional development and places great importance on helping all its staff to shape successful careers.

Joining such a well-known and respected practice also brings other benefits, such as advice and support from experienced team members, the opportunity to have direct contact with a diverse client base and the chance to build an invaluable network of peers and other professionals.

Tony Newman, Partner at George Hay Chartered Accountants and responsible for student training said: “We know that University isn’t for everyone and when it comes to a career in accountancy, it isn’t a prerequisite.”

“We are a forward-thinking firm, keen to attract diverse talent and give bright, determined individuals a route into the profession. If you are willing to put the work in, there will always be ample reward as many of our team will attest to.”
