Job Description

Joining MHA Moore & Smalley on an AAT Apprenticeship provides you with an excellent platform to develop a successful career in Accountancy and Finance. We have an enviable reputation for training, nurturing and developing our students and offering unrivalled career development opportunities


The firm will sponsor you with a fully funded study package to undertake a 2 - 4 year training contract studying for the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualification - the first step to becoming a chartered accountant.

You will have the opportunity to work in a challenging and stimulating environment where early responsibility is actively encouraged and rewarded. You will get the chance to work alongside business owners, helping design solutions which will make a positive difference to their business performance. The work is varied and fast paced. If you are a people person and enjoy helping others succeed, you will derive great job satisfaction from a career at MHA Moore and Smalley. Supporting our Corporate and Business Services team to deliver a high-quality service to a range of clients, you will be:

  • Learning how to prepare accounts and draft tax computations
  • Undertaking accounting and tax assignments
