HAT are recruiting for 8 roles to start in Jan 24 with Simmons Gainsford based in central London starting in January 2024.

HAT is unique because one application to us means you can be considered for more than one vacancy. Our scheme is managed solely by our Recruitment Manager, Anna Boast. This means that you will be treated as an individual and won’t be subjected to a barrage of stages and months waiting to hear back.

Training with a smaller firm is so rewarding. You won't spend months on one section of the same audit. You will soon be responsible for completing a whole range of assignments including accountancy, audit and giving business advice to a wide variety of clients. You will receive support every step of the way from your exam tutors at Kaplan, colleagues, your training partner and from the HAT team, which is why, on average 88% of our students pass first time.

In addition to all of this, you can expect a highly competitive annual salary, paid leave to attend college and complete your exams and your firm will ensure you have the right level of approved practical experience to become qualified. In addition to this, you will also attend high quality practical courses, which are written and run by HAT (these are not normally available if you chose to train with a small firm).

Minimum Academic Criteria

  • Maths, Science or Business degrees – ideally a first class degree but would accept a high 2:1
  • AAB as a minimum at A-level
  • Grade 7 above in GCSE maths

    If you don’t meet this criteria, please email Anna to discuss via the apply button below.

    Hat Group can only accept applications from those who have no restrictions working in the UK, now and in the future.
