Prime Accountants has opened its 2022 graduate programme early to “attract and nurture” new talent after a period of sustained growth.
Prime’s graduate programme is open to anyone at degree level with “good quality” A-level and GCSE results with a minimum of B/6 in GCSE maths and English.
The programme offers successful candidates a chance to learn a “wide variety of skills”, including the functionalities behind audits, accounts, corporation tax and how accountancy software works.
Additionally, the ‘on the job learning’ will be augmented by theoretical training as it offers a fully-supported and funded study package, allowing graduates to obtain professional qualifications at college.
The business said it is eager to “support” its growth by bringing forward the next intake of its graduate programme, to create its own pool of professionals who can be nurtured by its
Morgan Davies, Prime Accountants group director, said: “It’s been a strange few years for all industries and many are still dealing with the effects of the pandemic. In the midst of this, youngsters have also struggled with the fact that several firms did not take on many graduates. In fact, some did not take on any in 2020.
“Prime, however, has taken a different stance, as we knew the only way to tackle challenges was with the right people, and what better way than to nurture this talent yourself. It’s why last year we took on the highest number of graduates we have ever taken on and are looking to do the same in 2022.
He added: “During what has been dubbed ‘the great resignation’, we have been quite fortunate to grow our employee base in a positive way. In fact, our staff turnover is much below the industry norm today and this is a real testament to the culture we have built with our staff and nurture every day.”
