Where can I learn about opportunities with Burgess Hodgson?

careers-faq
Current vacancies are advertised here but we are always looking for potential new trainees. Don’t think because there isn’t a job advertised that we won’t look at your application.

How can I send in my CV to Burgess Hodgson and to whom?

In the first instance, please address your CV and covering letter to our training partner Robert Field and either post it to our office address or send it via email. We will get back to you as soon as we can to let you know if you have been shortlisted for an interview.

Alternatively, please fill in our application form.

Does Burgess Hodgson sponsor ongoing training?

Yes, we do help our trainees out with the financial costs of their qualifications as well as providing generous study leave. In the meantime, you will be expected to learn on-the-job, liaising with clients and managing accounts.

What is the typical assessment process?

You will be asked to attend an interview, but we will have looked at your qualifications and covering letter to ascertain whether you have a desire to work in accountancy, and whether we feel you could make a valuable contribution to the firm.

How can I prepare for my interview with Burgess Hodgson?

Knowing about the Firm will help, but it will also be important to show that you have a grasp of current affairs and basic economics. We won’t test you on the intricacies of the most recent Budget, but it would help to know some of the headlines. Equally, if you’re not aware of the current state of the economy, it wouldn’t bode well for someone looking to make a career in accountancy.

Does Burgess Hodgson attend any graduate recruitment fairs?

Every year, we visit local education establishments such as the University of Kent and provide talks about accountancy and working with Burgess Hodgson. We don’t tend to go wider afield than this, but if you’ve got any questions about working within the Firm, you can always ask!
