Job Details

Realise your potential and enjoy a wealth of opportunities in a graduate role at Sagars.

We are now inviting applications for graduates to join our Leeds team at Sagars (part of the AAB group) in Summer 2023.  Opportunities exist to join our corporate tax team.  Successful applicants will gain quality work experience with us whilst studying for the joint ACA/CTA qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and Chartered institute of Taxation (CIOT) under a Level 7 Accounting Professional Apprenticeship.


In addition to studying for these prestigious qualifications, you will play an important part of our experienced tax teams at an exciting time for both the firm and wider tax-world. In an age of increasing legislation, we aim to meet our clients’ needs with our bespoke support which enables them to understand how the ever-changing tax landscape impacts them and their business. We provide guidance that our clients can rely upon: we manage every aspect of their tax exposure, including preparing returns (to fulfil all their reporting obligations), managing payments and negotiating with HMRC.  

You’ll have your own mentor, and you can expect the full support of our award-winning team throughout your training contract.

The average length of service at Sagars is 10 years, testament to the flexible and supportive working environment that we’ve created. Four of our current partners and directors, and many of our senior managers joined us as graduates - proof of the excellent career prospects that exist for the right people.


To guarantee the very best technical and personal levels of service, we’re looking for high calibre graduates 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 a 2:1 degree classification (in any discipline) to be considered.
