Chartered accountants, business advisers and financial planners Lovewell Blake has welcomed a new intake of 17 apprentices and graduate trainees – and has started the recruitment process for its 2017 intake.
The firm recruits up to 20 school leavers, college leavers and graduates on an annual basis, with all embarking on professional qualifications or apprenticeships from day one.
As the 2016 intake joins the firm, applications have opened for the 2017 positions, for current Year 11 and Year 13 students, as well as degree final year students.
Those joining from school and college on apprenticeships start the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) or Business Administration qualifications, whilst graduate trainees study for either the Association of Chartered Accountants (ACA) or Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualifications – onto which accountancy apprentices also progress once they have achieved the AAT qualification.
The new entrants are working in the firm’s offices in Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Halesworth and Thetford and boost Lovewell Blake’s head count to 273.
