Training and development

Our training culture is deeply embedded in everything we do. So no matter where you join us, on whichever programme, you’ll be supported at every stage of your career.

You’ll find proof of our commitment to your development in how we have already developed our people: some of our current partners joined us as school leavers while others include national and international Association of Chartered Accountants (ACA) exam prize winners.

As well as regular one to one meetings with your manager, you can expect to have a performance development conversation, and a career conversation too. Your performance development conversation will be looking back at the previous year and setting objectives for the coming year whilst your career conversation will be looking forward. We have a wide range of on-demand learning too.

Successfully completing your training with us will give you a broad platform for a progressive career.

We offer several apprenticeship training options:-

If you’re a school leaver, we offer the AAT (The Association of Accounting Technicians) apprenticeships. For more information click here: https://www.pkf-francisclarkcareers.co.uk/early-careers/aat/

If you’re a graduate, we offer the ACA (Association of Chartered Accountants) apprenticeship which is the industry standard qualification to become a professionally qualified Chartered Accountant. For more information click here https://www.pkf-francisclarkcareers.co.uk/early-careers/aca/

Or, if you’re a graduate, you might prefer to choose the ATT-CTA (The Association of Tax Technicians and Chartered Tax Adviser) apprenticeships, to become a fully qualified Tax professional.  For more information click here: https://www.pkf-francisclarkcareers.co.uk/early-careers/taxation-att-cta-att-aca-cta/


You’ll immediately get to work with the widest range of clients which includes household names you’ll already be familiar with. Our work for them is valuable and rewarding, offers career-building responsibility and the opportunity to become a highly valued advisor and trusted part of the firm.


Our offices across the South and South West of the UK are in some of the most beautiful parts of the country. Whether it’s cities or green fields, the coast or attractive market towns, we can offer you a full and rewarding career and the opportunity to immerse yourself fully in both work and play.


We love meeting prospective candidates and helping them find out about working with us. We attend a range of careers fairs each year. You can find an event near you on our events page.
