Apprenticeships

What we are looking for

We are looking for a range of different skills. Firstly you will need excellent A level passes, including where possible subjects with analytical, numerical or business content. (it may surprise you to know that you do not need a maths A level to become an accountant but of course you need to be numerate!) You will need good communication skills, and your motivation and commitment should be high, with a desire to continue learning. We don’t just value people for their academic qualifications but for the qualities they can bring to Princecroft Willis.

We need good team workers as well as those who can adapt to varying working environments as you will have to be prepared to work at our clients’ premises as well as in our offices.

You should have an enquiring mind, resilience and maturity.

In return you will be supported in your career aspirations and will receive a competitive salary.

If you fit these criteria, you could be the right person to join one of our our Apprenticeship Programmes.

What we offer

As an A level entrant apprentice with Princecroft Willis, you will have the opportunity to work with the leading independent accountancy practice in the area and the chance to learn about accountancy practice in depth.

We aim to support our apprentices to develop a base of skills and experience and to provide the opportunity for personal growth. At Princecroft Willis, we believe there are three important aspects to our business which underpin our success: our people, our clients and our knowledge.

Our professional training courses are provided by Kaplan based in Southampton and can provide support for AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) and ATT (Association of Taxation Technicians)studies.

We are a Bronze accredited Investors in People employer and therefore offer excellent support for the development of all of our employees.

We will provide you with a Mentor, someone who isn't your line manager but is an experienced colleague who you can go to for advice to help you settle into your new role.

We continually strive to improve our standards and involve our employees in that goal, taking pride in the development of our staff.

You will be working with highly trained individuals in a team environment. You will be recruited into a permanent real job with an immediate requirement to contribute to the work and responsibilities of your team. Our clients are many and varied and you will get the chance to work with a diverse range of client industries from our offices in Poole and the New Forest.

You will take ownership of your development and will be expected to take an active role in your own learning. The firm provides a supportive environment for learning.
