Job Details

If you’re considering an accountancy, tax or business advisory career, joining us for a summer internship is a good way to try it out before you commit to a training contract.  We’ll pay you for your time, it’ll look great on your CV and could be a foot in the door for your long-term Sagars career.

Your opportunity

Following our merger with the AAB Group, Sagars is continuing to grow, so we’re seeking high calibre undergraduates to join us for a minimum of six weeks on a paid placement in Summer 2023.


Positions exist in our Leeds-based business client team, incorporating audit and accounting / cloud accounting, offering you interesting and varied work experience, together with valuable insight into the day-to-day professional lives of chartered accountants, tax specialists and business advisers.

Whilst you’re on placement with us, we can guarantee you the full support of our award-winning team members (who will be happy to answer as many questions as you can think of), a friendly and flexible working environment, dress for your day approach and social event invitations.

Perhaps more important than all of that is the fact that three of our current partners, one of our directors and lots of our senior managers joined us as trainees - proof of the excellent career prospects that exist for the right people.  Impress us on your placement and you could secure a training contract to further your career. 

About you

To make it onto the Sagars team you’ll need to be a natural relationship builder and an enthusiastic team player with energy, commitment, a thirst for knowledge and a good sense of humour – if this sounds like you then you’ll fit right in, and that matters to us as much as your academic achievements.

To guarantee the very best technical and personal levels of service, we’re looking for people with the drive and personality to help us meet our clients’ needs.  Competition is tough and you’ll need a minimum ABB at A level (or equivalent) and 5 GCSE’s including English and Maths at grade 6 or above.

How to apply

Sagars is a professional practice of the future, but we’ve been in business long enough to know that the game is won or lost at the recruitment stage, so we only hire the very best people, and we play to our strengths. 

Got a good feeling about Sagars? Think you’d fit right in? Then we’d love to hear from you…

Please send your CV and a covering letter, explaining why you’d make a great Sagars team member, to Hannah Stocks ( or post your application to Gresham House, 5-7 St Pauls Street, Leeds LS1 2JG. The closing deadline is Monday 20 March 2023, shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview on Tuesday 18 April 2023. Successful candidates will join our team for a minimum of six weeks when they finish university for the summer.




Sagars was established 100 years ago and has seen many changes including a merger with the AAB Group to become the award-winning firm of the future that it is today. We’re now part of a business that has over 950 employees and offices in Leeds, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London and Ireland.
