Trainee Accountant

We’re GCSD, one of the largest and most established accountants in the Cotswolds.

We act for more than 2200 clients and look after their combined revenue of almost £300 million.

In the past 5 years, our headcount has grown by 33% and we’re continuing to recruit at pace.

As for our clients, they’re spread all across the UK and in every sector imaginable. From wealthy individuals to global manufacturers, we have an uncommonly close relationship with them and act as an extension of their business. We’re often invited into boardrooms to advise on key business decisions, and it’s the reason why we’re still acting for companies we first met in the ‘90s.

This year we made another big move – joining the Xeinadin Group. It’s a new, innovative approach to finance which combines accountancy and business consultancy. Joining forces with hundreds of other regional firms like ours, together we now make the 17th largest practice in the UK – streets ahead of anybody else in Gloucestershire.

About you:

You’re looking for your next big step or a brand new start, with an employer that will challenge and support you in equal measure. You’re ambitious and hard-working, but you know there’s more to life than just your job, so flexibility and a good work/life balance is key. So is a good working environment and relationships with your colleagues and managers – because you’re looking to progress and want to work somewhere that will listen to your ideas, whatever your job title might be.

You’re (obviously) interested in the numbers side of things, but you also want to use your expertise in the bigger picture and play a part in advising clients on their business decisions.

Put short: you’re more than just an accountant.

About the job:

Trainees are the lifeblood of our firm and the most important players on the team. We’re putting our future in your hands and, in return, we’ll make sure you get the best training and development available.

The things you’ll learn and duties you’ll carry out will include:

  • Preparation of accounts for various types and sizes of business
  • Basic drafting of personal and business tax computations

  • VAT returns
  • Management account preparations
