At Beever and Struthers, we’re a different breed of accountants and auditors. You won’t find the usual corporate experience. Just a lively, fun environment where we’re all free to do our best work and do a great job for our clients.

If you’re a graduate or newly qualified finance professional, you’re probably looking around right now wondering why all the firms you’ve checked out are just a bit – how can we say this nicely? Grey. Uninspiring. Stuck-in-their-ways.

If you want to work somewhere with a bit of spirit. In an office where there’s a vibe, a buzz, and at least a glimmer of excitement. You want to meet people who mentor and inspire you and maybe, just maybe, not have to wait 20 years for someone senior to notice your talent and help you progress.

Well, it’s your lucky day, Beever and Struthers are a rare breed in the accountancy world. We have offices in Manchester, Birmingham, and London, and they’re all brimming with interesting, ambitious, and brilliant people who won’t settle for a boring existence. No. They’re all pushing to make this industry an exciting place to work – and to give our clients a service that’s designed for today and not something out of the dark ages.

Sound good? We’re not finished yet. Join our merry band of talented accountancy professionals and you’ll be bowled over by the training and mentoring on offer. It’s something we’re really hot on. Which means it probably won’t be long before you’re celebrating your next step up the ladder. Life’s all about making the right choices – if you’re smart, you’ll choose us. So, if this all sounds appealing, we’d love to hear from you and look forward to having a conversation sometime soon.
