“I joined Hazlewoods after a change of career, as I really wanted increased variety in my day-to-day work and was interested in studying alongside working.

I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere at Hazlewoods, and the opportunities that are presented to me as part of the dynamic Audit team.”

Frances Hawker, ACA Apprentice

For graduates we now offer two Level 7 apprenticeships – ACA and ACA/CTA Joint Pathway. Equivalent to a Master’s degree, these programmes align with globally recognised professional accountancy qualifications, as well as providing structured support and guidance for each apprentice’s wider development.

Our apprenticeships

Our ACA programme enables graduates to develop into a Chartered Accountant within 3 years. The ACA/CTA route takes 4 years to complete and means you will qualify as a Chartered Accountant and Tax Adviser. Study is provided by our first-class training partner, First Intuition based in Bristol.

Having partnered with First Intuition for a number of years, we have been consistently delighted with the training and personal support that they provide. Study is classroom based and includes mock exams ‘early hurdles’ and regular feedback on progress to ensure you’re on the right track.

We pay for all associated study costs, give extra days off for revision and exams and pay for travel expenses. 

We recruit graduates into teams across all areas of the business from Audit, Business Services, Corporate Finance, Tax and our sector specialist teams.  So, wherever your interests lie, we have an opportunity for you.   

We also offer the chance to spend time in other departments, ensuring you gain a wide range of experience whilst training which will not only help with your studies, but also provide insight into how other areas of the business work.

We welcome applicants from any degree discipline, with a 2:1 classification or higher, a keen interest in business and the necessary drive and resilience to succeed.
