Your opportunity Do you want to pursue a career in finance? Are you a graduate who is looking for their first role in finance? This may be your opportunity. We are looking for candidates who are enthusiastic, committed, and ready for the world of work.


How you will make a difference You will join a team of professionals who will guide you and help you develop your skills and knowledge while working on real projects and real clients. These roles are ideal for people who like problem-solving and can adapt to changes. At BKL, we appreciate and value individuals who can work autonomously but still collaborate with a wider team. You will have the opportunity to learn and grow as an accountant, while delivering high quality work as part of your team (or pod as we call them).

What you can expect: To be placed within our two biggest teams, either Assurance (Audit) or Advanced Business Services (Accounts). Day-to-day bookkeeping and accounts prep. Prepare VAT returns, management accounts and statutory accounts. Assist the seniors within your team and learn from their experience. Be assigned to one of our industry-related pod systems where you will work with various industries within different sectors, including Music & Entertainment, Property, Financial Services and Not for Profit.

You will be ideal for this role if you… Have GCSE Grade 5 and above in English and Maths GCSE. Obtain a 2:1 Have alternative qualifications equivalent to the above.

Are comfortable with studying whilst working. Have great organisational and problem-solving abilities. Are able to learn and receive continuous feedback on how to improve and grow in your accountancy journey.  


We know you have a lot to offer, which is why we want to give you the freedom to thrive no matter who you are or what your background is. You will have every opportunity to use your creativity in how you approach your work and the support to innovate.


Inclusion, diversity, and talent development are a fundamental aspect of who we are, and we welcome applications from candidates who share and champion these values. You will play an integral part in helping to make BKL a great place to work with a sense of belonging for everyone.

High challenge, high support If you enjoy problem-solving and a fast-changing environment, you will thrive in this role.

As in all BKL roles, you will be able to take a flexible approach: balancing independent work with teamwork, and remote working with time in the office with colleagues.

You can get an insight into life at BKL by visiting our website or by browsing our social media.

We’re proud to be one of the few Certified B Corporations in the accountancy sector. In joining us, you’ll become part of a business that’s committed to balancing profit and purpose.

Take your Next Step If this sounds like the role for you, and BKL sounds like the place for you, we’d be delighted to talk with you about the career you could build here. That begins with an application via our jobs portal...

Part of how we’ll get to know you, and make sure we’d work well together, is aptitude & psychometric testing during our selection process.

The assessment dates for this role is are in April so we’re ready when you are!
