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, Outsourcing or Tax disciplines. You will study towards a professional qualification AAT Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship 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 ICAEW ACA or ACCA qualifications.
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 280 UCAS points under the old scoring system, or 112 UCAS points under the new scoring system which must comprise of at least three A-levels or equivalent (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.
For 2019 positions the online application process will be open until mid July 2019. For more information, please click on the relevant link.
