A’ level entrants wanted!

If you’d like to earn whilst you learn, consider a career in tax.  

This opportunity will allow you to gain a professional qualification without going to University.

The first step on the road to becoming a tax consultant is to qualify as an ATT – Tax Technician (which you could do as soon as 2021) then potentially go on to graduate level tax qualifications.

Fancy following in my footsteps? Within 2 years of joining Bishop Fleming as an A Level school leaver, I qualified as a Tax Technician and am now a qualified Chartered Tax Adviser.

“While doing my A Levels I spoke to a few people about a career in accountancy and realised that it’s not just about number crunching AND, that I could get a professional qualification in less time than if I went to University."

"I found out about the Tax Technician (ATT) qualification, the first stepping stone which would enable me to study to become a fully qualified tax adviser without first obtaining a degree - and better still, Bishop Fleming would pay the cost! No loans for me!"

"It was easy to apply and the staff were really welcoming and helpful. I’ve had great support and commitment from Bishop Fleming throughout and would certainly recommend this route to anyone"

"Bishop Fleming is a great place to work, and I'm still building my career with them".
