About The Role 
We are looking to recruit individuals to join our audit department on a two-year training contract as part of our September 2024 and January 2025 CFAB intake. 
About us 

Goodman Jones LLP is a central London firm of chartered accountants. Established in 1934, we are a team of accountants, auditors, tax, and business advisers based in Fitzroy Square, London. Together with our supporting IT, HR, and financial services companies, we provide the full range of compliance, support, and advisory services. Our clients include UK owner managed businesses, UK subsidiaries of large international groups, charities and not-for-profit organisations, and start-up business and entrepreneurs – across a wide range of sectors. 

Training at Goodman Jones

From the very beginning of your training, you will work as part of a team on a wide variety of clients and sectors. You will gain strong technical skills in all of the key areas: accounting and corporate tax. This is supported by the opportunity to work on one-off assignments and special projects. No function receives more care and attention than the selection and training of our CFAB intake to ensure that not only do you qualify, but also that you develop as an individual into a well-rounded and assured professional. 

At Goodman Jones, we pride ourselves on being an equal opportunities employer where inclusion and diversity are central to our values. We have a focus on enabling our people to feel they can bring their whole self to work and ensuring everyone feels supported, respected and confident to make a valuable contribution. 

Your course training will be provided by First Intuition, with financial and study support towards CFAB qualification provided. In addition to this, your studies will, where eligible, follow a Government approved Level 4 Apprenticeship standard which enhances all the necessary skills, knowledge and work required to become qualified. 

Salaries are increased annually, part of which is performance-based, and there are further increases relating to professional progression throughout your employment. In addition to this we also offer the following:

  • 33 days annual leave including bank holidays 
  • Employee benefits package, including cashback benefits and vouchers. 
  • Pension contributions at 5% of gross salary for qualifying individuals with a salary sacrifice option
  • Regular social and team-building events
  • Flexible working arrangements and flexi days, including the opportunity to swap up to 3 bank holidays to use at other times of the year

Your future

Every applicant chosen to become one of our trainees is selected on the basis that they have the attributes we believe are required to progress to a very senior level at Goodman Jones. Indeed, many of our current managers and partners trained at Goodman Jones. 

What we look for

We look for students with strong academic results; we require a minimum 120 UCAS tariff points (3 'B's at A Level). We may consider candidates outside of these grade requirements if they are exceptional in all other respects - we do consider the 'whole person' in making our selection as we believe enthusiasm, the ability to mix with people, strong communication skills, and a determination to succeed are also all equal importance.
