Our recruitment policy is tailored to meet future recruitment needs and ambition, and our retention of staff can be measured by the longevity of our partners. We must be doing something right!

With three offices, seven partners and approximately 70 staff, Wenn Townsend acts for a wide range of businesses and individuals, encompassing concerns of the self-employed and small families, as well as large, private sector companies.

This range provides our employees with a full scope of all areas of experience in auditing, accounting and taxation work. This proves to be necessary for qualification, and that is why Wenn Townsend is so sought after as a training firm.

Our training experience provides our future practitioners with the skills and experience for a successful career in accountancy no matter which path you choose to go down. From preparing a set of accounts for a sole trader one week, to being a member of the team auditing a large group of companies the next, with all our departments working in close proximity you will get to experience the full range of services we provide. Our trainee Anna gives an account of one of her working days here to give you a taster of what you could be doing whilst qualifying with us.

All our associates get involved with preparing accounts, planning and carrying out audits, calculating tax for individuals, charities and companies, and much more, all under the supervision of a team of experienced managers and partners who have all been through the same training programme as you.

You will be able to work closely with senior members of staff including the partners of the firm throughout your training contract and will receive regular appraisals to aid your development. Successful applicants will receive a competitive initial salary, together with a fully funded study package throughout the training contract. Our students attend all their courses at either BPP Professional Education in Reading, Reed Business School in Moreton-in-Marsh or via distance learning.

We offer training to both graduates and school leavers for the following qualifications:
– Chartered Accountants (ACA)
