The UHY Hacker Young Group is an ambitious and growing Top 15 Group of UK chartered accountants. Our mid-tier size means that every year we select just a small number of talented trainees to help our business to grow. As a trainee you will be given responsibility from day one and the chance to stretch your talents and experience a wide diversity of work.

We are interested in you as an individual – what your interests are, what motivates you and how we can help you to meet your professional objectives. Our clients tell us that what makes us truly stand out is the enthusiasm and the passion of our people and we hire people who show the most potential to offer solutions focused advice to help our clients prosper.

From the offset, you will receive exposure to a varied portfolio of clients, as well as access to the best training available. Our trainees always tell us that the culture and family spirit is one of the best firm attributes we provide and Lachlan, a graduate within our London office, strongly agrees:  “Everyone enjoys being surrounded by so many familiar faces back at our home ground, and the mood is always jovial.”

As an approved training office for the ICAEW, we are considered a leading trainer within the accountancy profession but don’t just take our word for it; read the unedited experiences of our current staff on our early careers site at:
