Description of Opportunity

Brebners is a long established firm in the West End of London. Clients are drawn from many sectors including restaurants and leisure, media, manufacturing, service industries and finance. They range in size from large corporates to individuals in business.

We aim to be the best in our field. Our service is based on a thorough understanding of our clients. Our success has come from consistently providing dynamic, imaginative solutions to our clients’ problems. Our strength lies in the range of specialist advice we provide and the consistent quality of service. That quality is not negotiable because we want our clients to be as proud of us as we are of them.

The firm is large enough to have specialist departments, which are used by the client contact partners to provide top quality service, but small enough to maintain close relationships with clients and staff.

Training Students join our audit and accountancy department spending on average a couple of weeks on each assignment. Secondments to other departments ensure that a wide variety of experience, both of types of work and different businesses, is a feature of the training. SWAT UK provides both in-house work related courses and the link to the tutors for your examinations. We provide an office environment that is friendly and hard-working with the support of colleagues and partners as you build up your knowledge and experience.

ACA Level 7

ACA is a great option if you’re looking to become a chartered accountant and work in accountancy and finance. It opens a wealth of opportunities, as you can specialise in specific areas or sectors, or work broadly across multiple industries. It consists of three levels: Certificate, Professional, and Advanced. You’ll also need to have 450 practical work experience days. It’ll take around three years to complete the qualification.

Certificate Level:

You’ll be introduced to the essentials of accountancy, finance, and businesses. You’ll learn about double-entry accounting, assurance, business and technology, law, management, and taxation. This level takes around one year to complete.

Units include:

  • Accounting
  • Assurance
  • Business Finance and Technology
  • Law
  • Management Information
  • Principles of Taxation
  • Business Strategy and Technology
  • Financial Management

Professional Level:

This level teaches you how to apply technical knowledge to real-life scenarios. You’ll deepen your knowledge on financial reporting, audit and assurance, tax compliance, finance management, business strategy, and business planning. This level takes around one year to complete.

Units include:

  • Financial Accounting and Reporting
  • Audit and Assurance
  • Taxation Compliance
  • Financial Management
  • Business Strategy and Technology
  • Business Planning papers (Tax, Banking, or Insurance)

Advanced Level:

ACA Advanced will give you the skills to understand how accountancy and finance works within businesses. You’ll learn about corporate reporting and strategic business management, and take a case study, which tests your overall knowledge. This level takes around one year to complete. You’ll become eligible for chartered accountancy status upon qualifying. You’ll be able to work in exciting roles such as auditor, forensic accountant, financial accountant, and tax specialist.

Units include:

  • Corporate Reporting
  • Strategic Business Management
  • Case Study

Every Apprenticeship includes an End Point Assessment (EPA), assessed by an independent End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO). The apprentice will take their EPA at the end of their programme where they will demonstrate they are competent in the role that they have developed in. This Apprenticeship Standard End Point Assessment will include:

  • Case Study
  • Project Report

  • We are looking to recruit a number of graduates who aspire to become Chartered Accountants.
  • We have high standards and are looking for candidates with excellent academic qualifications as well as drive, ambition and a thirst for success.

We are large enough to have experts able to provide advice across almost all accountancy and tax matters, whilst we still ensure the personal touch is maintained. Almost all of our senior staff have worked at Brebners for many years, and wherever possible there will be continuity of the staff servicing client needs.

Students will have the opportunity to work alongside all such specialist departments within the firm, as they progress through their training contracts.

There is also the potential for secondments and to specialise within a chosen area upon qualification.

Otherwise, past students have gone on to become finance directors of public companies, partners in professional practices and used their knowledge to set up and run their own businesses. Whichever direction you choose, we feel that the training given here should give you a sound base from which to expand your knowledge and achieve your goals.

Benefits include: 21 days’ holiday + bank holidays. Statutory / auto enrolment pension.
