We are extremely proud of and value the expertise and technical know-how within our business, but we equally understand the importance of enhancing and sharing this knowledge to continuously develop our future workforce.

With the everchanging economic landscape and advances in technology, there has never been a more exciting time to start a career in accountancy. Whether a school/college leaver, a graduate or simply looking for a career change, why not start your journey here at Azets?

We are committed to offering development opportunities to all of our staff, from Entry Level Trainee through to Senior Partner. As a trainee, all of our roles will provide a professional qualification specific to the business area you will be working in.

The role

As part of your role as a Tax Associate you will provide assistance with the preparation of Self Assessment and income expenditure statements for clients and also assist your colleagues with obtaining information for the completion of accounts and tax returns. As well as providing tax administration, you will also be communicating with HMRC and really gaining a full insight into the world of taxation. As an integral and valued member of the team you will be expected to form and build long term relationships with new and existing clients to assist them in achieving their objectives.

Please note: This role has been designed for students currently studying at university with a placement (sandwich) year as part of their course.
