ATT & CTA Pathway Graduate Recruitment

Bringing forth the next generation of client-focused, technically outstanding advisers.

Graduate trainee programmes

We are currently recruiting for our ATT/CTAGraduate scheme. 

Successful applicants to our 3-year ATT/CTA graduate tax training scheme will enjoy early responsibility and will find our business to be friendly and our working environment to be lively and stimulating.

What you can expect

We are small enough that no one need ever feel that they are simply a cog in a machine, yet large enough to offer challenging and satisfying work.


Our commitment to your development shows in the consistently high pass rates our students achieve in examinations–something we are very proud of.

We pay for all courses, exam fees and study leave so that you can focus on achieving success. You will attend courses delivered by a leading financial training company in London to prepare you for your professional examinations. These comprise long periods of full-time study, progress examinations and home study.

We also run a series of in-house practical training courses as well as personal development training including managerial skills such as communication, assertiveness, teamwork, critical thinking and negotiation.

Broad client base

We act for clients ranging from substantial businesses with international connections and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), professional firms and charities, to high net worth individuals.

Our clients cover a wide range of industries, from heavy engineering and advanced computer technology, nationwide insurance operations and charities, to professional firms such as solicitors.

Our ‘typical’ client is a large, privately owned business.

For many, the ownership rests in another part of the European Union (EU), giving you a unique opportunity to see how the EU impacts upon business in Britain and how other nationalities approach businesses here.

This will continue to be the case, even as the UK leaves the European Union. It is a unique opportunity to see how businesses will react to this change.

I enjoy working in a supportive working environment where people issues come first - that’s why I find working at Blick Rothenberg so rewarding.
