ACA Graduate Scheme

Bringing forth the next generation of client-focused, technically outstanding advisers.

Our people are key to our success. We want to recruit and retain the very best, so every year we look for top-quality graduates who wish to train as chartered accountants.

Graduate training programme

Our training programme is now part of the Blick Rothenberg ACA graduate training scheme. When you join our scheme, you sign up to much more than a qualification. You join the Blick Rothenberg culture and way of life.

Successful applicants to our 3-year ACA training scheme will enjoy early responsibility and will find our culture to be friendly and nurturing.

Blick Rothenberg will provide you with regular training opportunities including courses such as transition to work and effective communication skills. We will support you in developing your career from a trainee through to partner.

You will spend time working amongst a variety of teams as part of your training and will be supported with significant training and development opportunities.

Some of our partners either trained with us or joined us shortly after qualifying, so there is always scope for good trainees to build a fulfilling and successful career with us.


Our commitment to your development shows in the consistently high pass rates our students achieve in examinations – something we are very proud of.

We pay for all courses; exam fees and study leave so that you can focus on achieving success.

You will attend courses delivered by a leading financial training company in London to prepare you for your professional examinations. These comprise long periods of full-time study, progress examinations and home study.

Around 20% of your time will be accounted for by attending courses either linked to the professional examinations or for internal training purposes.
