From our office

At UHY we pride ourselves on being people focused, and we understand the importance of attracting and keeping the highest calibre teams.

UHY is not just a firm of accountants, a place of work, an employer. UHY is a team who are trained to help each other prosper. We pledge to invest in our people, their skills and their future, as we continue to develop our business and the way we serve our clients.

Our philosophy of ‘helping you prosper’ forms the basis of our talent pledge and we are committed to developing talent at all levels. Our clients tell us that what makes us truly stand out is the enthusiasm and the passion of our people.

When you join UHY, we want to know why you’re looking to join, what you’re hoping to gain from your time with us, and how we can help you achieve that. We want to see everyone who comes to UHY flourish.

To some that will mean having a clear career pathway and routes to progress, for others it will be having a real variety in the type of client they work with. Others will want to develop a particular niche area of strength and specialism, and for others it will be about work life balance and being in a work place which is focused on wellbeing. For most, prosperity is a combination of many things, and at UHY we try to ensure we can cover all bases.

When you join us as a graduate, you will be guided through a tailored training plan supporting both your professional and personal development, with a focus on helping you prosper and excel in your career as an accountant. 

Most of our trainees study to obtain the ACA qualification.

An ACA is an Associate Chartered Accountant; the qualification is gained through the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). It is a widely-respected qualification which will offer you a rewarding, diverse career that is full of opportunity.

To qualify as an ACA, you must complete a training contract which will last 3 years, pass the Institute’s examinations and carry out work experience. This broad-based qualification provides you with excellent grounding in accounting, financial reporting, auditing and business management.

The ACA qualification at UHY Hacker Young is audit focused, you learn a lot about Accounting Standards and you will often be out at clients’ offices, checking that their accounts comply with these standards.

It is a challenging qualification which demands a lot of hard work, commitment and determination. However, once qualified, your ACA will be recognised as a sign of quality, commercial acumen and professionalism and will offer you a huge opportunity for success.
