Why us

PKF not only offers you broad experience and early responsibility, but a friendly, supportive environment, with lots of partner and client contact from day one.

Unique variety – Our clients range from sole traders to AIM listed companies, insurance firms, charities and international organisations.

Early responsibility – Within a year of joining, you could be going out to audit smaller clients on your own.

Client contact – Working in small teams, you’ll be talking to clients from the start, and you’ll soon get to know their businesses.

International aspect – We are an independent member of PKF International, a worldwide network of accounting firms, so you may well work on an international assignment. Overseas opportunities arise from time to time.

Training – We offer opportunities to train as Chartered Accountants (ACA) and Tax Advisers (ATT/CTA).

Encouragement and support – We have a very high exam pass rate, thanks to a combination of tailored, in-house training, and the support of your personal tutor, mentor and counselling partner.

Broad experience – We don’t box people into narrow fields of work. As a trainee you’ll have opportunities to be seconded to different divisions, giving you different perspectives on the firm. You may even be seconded to a client organisation.

Competitive salary – And generous benefits!

Personal development – As part of your regular appraisals, we’ll devise a training programme to help you develop your strengths, address any weaker areas and achieve your career goals.

Location – Less hectic than the City yet easily accessible, Canary Wharf is a great place to work. For lunchtime and after-work entertainment, there are bars, restaurants, a cinema, art exhibitions, concerts and comedy evenings… plus gyms and sports clubs for when you’re feeling more active.

“I got exposure to interesting and challenging work from the very start.  Should a client have a query, I have the responsibility for dealing with it rather than simply passing it on to someone more senior.”
