How could an accountancy apprentice support your small business?

View this webinar to find out how accountancy apprenticeships work, and what to expect from an accountancy apprentice.

We hear from Jill Campbell, Partner at jwpcreers llp, a chartered accountancy business which employs around 80 staff. There are currently three apprentices in the business, and two more will be recruited to start in September. (Read JWPCreer’s case study on Apprenticemakers here).

Jill talks about her experience as an apprentice, and now as Partner she’s keen to support the recruitment and training of apprentices in her business.

Also joining the webinar were Andrew Roberts-Morris and Dan Winterburn from the AAT, the UK’s leading qualification and professional body for vocational accountants. They will talk about how young people are approaching apprenticeships these days and talk through how businesses can approach supporting their first accountancy apprentice.

An accountancy apprentice can be an invaluable addition to your small business. Here are just some of the ways they can help:

  • As the member of the team who acts as the interface between the business and an external accountant. Also further accountancy training could be a great way to retain them and eventually bring the accountancy function in house.
  • To pull together all of the financial information for tenders, a perfect job for a junior accountant.
  • As someone who understands accounts in-house who can keep a daily handle on the finances and cash flow to take the pressure off you.
  • Or if you run a small accountancy practice with a large case load, could an apprentice accountant help you grow the business in a sustainable way?

Many thanks to the AAT for helping us put together this webinar.
