Bird Simpson & Company is a training office, taking on graduate trainees who wish to study towards the Chartered Accountancy qualification with ICAS. Training for other specialisms is also encouraged.
Our trainees are given hands-on experience in all areas of the professional services in which we are engaged including accounts preparation, auditing and all areas of taxation. We encourage contact with the clients from commencement of the training contract as this gives the client the personal service required whilst allowing the trainees to build-up knowledge of the client’s business.
Work undertaken within the office is monitored by managers and partners whilst external assignments are controlled by qualified assistants and the appropriate partner but trainees are encouraged to show initiative and take responsibility from an early stage.
Trainees are given a broad range of in-house training and are also encouraged to attend further training courses to increase their knowledge in addition to the training they receive as part of their ICAS qualification. We feel that by giving the trainees support and specialist training together with a diverse range of work we maximise their experience and enhance their chances of success in their qualification.
