How to apply for our School Leaver Programme
University isn’t right for everyone, and with tuition fees increasing, starting a professional accountancy qualification through a Higher Apprenticeship pathway at Mercer & Hole could be the best choice for you.
Higher Apprenticeships are aimed at anyone who has completed A Levels (or equivalent). They offer specialist entry routes into Audit and Tax disciplines. You will study towards a professional qualification either ATT (for Tax) or CFAB (for Audit) whilst developing and demonstrating a wide range of key business and commercial skills.
Our programmes will run over two years and on completion, you will be well positioned to move on to complete the CTA or ICAEW qualifications.

Applications should be sent for the attention of Sarah Murphy, Head of HR to Trainee Recruitment, Mercer & Hole, Gloucester House, 72 London Road, St Albans AL1 1NS or via email. Your application will be acknowledged by the Human Resources Department.
What are we looking for?
Suitable candidates will be high achievers academically because the work is intellectually demanding and therefore applications are invited only from candidates who have achieved the minimum academic requirement of 300 UCAS points (A=120, B=100, C=80, D=60, E=40) which must comprise of at least three A-levels (excluding General Studies).
Academic achievement is only the starting point. We aim to recruit people who have demonstrated an ability and a willingness to accept responsibility, because they will be expected to do so as trainees; who are able to convince us that they possess common sense and good judgment; who are high achievers outside purely academic matters, with a range of extra-curricular interests which make them interesting as people; who have an outgoing personality with an ability to think and do things for themselves, a desire to participate and a ready ability to communicate; and for whom coming to work each day is enjoyable, but who realise that there is more to life than just work.

FIELD: Audit or Tax
