About the role:

With annual revenue in FYI 2017 of over £5bn, it’s fair to say our finances need just as much expertise as our projects.

What’s more, we’ll cover the costs and support you along the way to get your prestigious CIMA Chartered Management Accountant qualification.

Where you can join us:

What you'll be doing:

You’ll gain the broadest exposure to company-based accounting and financial management. This will span both management accounting (with both overhead and project experience) and business tax accounting. You’ll work on projects across many different sectors, which will give you the kind of experiences and insights that are very hard to come by.

Every step of the way you’ll be mentored, and we’ll support you to gain Associate of Chartered Management Accountants (ACMA) status, offered by CIMA. You’ll learn either through a tuition provider or via distance learning (we use BPP and Kaplan).

What you'll get out of it:

Most crucially, you’ll earn Chartered Management Accountant status. We’ll pay for you to get your qualification with CIMA, and assign you a mentor to help you get there – with a competitive starting salary of £29k.* In return, we expect you to attain Chartership.

What you'll need:

You’ll need a 2:2 (Hons) degree in Accountancy and Finance, Economics, Science or Engineering, with a good A-Level in Maths. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
