Accountants with ambitions to become partners can apply to join a scheme that a Cwmbran-based accountancy firm says is a first of its kind.

Green & Co has two vacancies for senior accountants who will then get the support they need to become business leaders and reach the level of partner.

The business describes the opportunity as “three-year partner apprenticeship”.

Those accepted will go through everything they need to achieve partnership status including the training, experience and ethos of the company, as they shadow the current partners and build their confidence and understanding of the role. 

The programme is a response to the challenges the wider industry faces in attracting and retaining financial staff, particularly in senior positions.

Two positions available

Two positions are available. Applicants need to have an ACCA/ ICAEW qualification and two to three years post-qualification experience.

Scott Harris, director at Green & Co, said: “We’re not aware of any other firm of our type that has a programme like this in place. The business is growing strongly and we are now keen to grow our partnership team in order to take on more clients. 

“However, it’s a delicate fit to find the right person with the skills and experience for the role but who also matches the ethos and culture of our company. Combined with the challenges the wider industry faces in access to talent, more traditional methods of recruitment have not been working.

“We’ve created a programme which will address some of these issues, but also demystify the role and support candidates over a number of years. At the end of the programme the new partners will have already started to build their own book of clients and will have established their preferred way of working.

“The industry is changing rapidly, both as technology and regulation develop, and in the way people want to work. As an award-winning firm, we have always been at the forefront of the industry, both by developing new services, technology and systems, and focussing on work-life balance.”
