Campbell Dallas Opportunity
We recruit school leavers each year to begin their accountancy career, by offering them a real, credible alternative to going to university.
The programme is a 6 year contract which allows them to complete their AAT qualification, followed by either ACCA or ICAS. For some areas within our organisation a 5 year direct entry into ICAS will be considered. This means that school leavers can become a qualified accountant in typically 1/2 years earlier than if they go to university. I’ve noted links below for our website which has more details about the positions plus an application form for any pupil interested to apply. I’ve also added links to the professional bodies.
It would be great if you could let any of the young people who are interested in accountancy know about these positions. A number of our staff have come from the local Renfrewshire schools, they were S5 & S6 pupils who had applied and been accepted for university but who had wanted a different route into the profession. We have ex pupils of Renfrew High, Gryffe High, Paisley Grammar and St Andrew’s Academy who are progressing well within the firm and are great ambassadors of this alternative route.
As a firm we would also welcome coming into school and speaking to interested pupils. It would be great if you would allow us this opportunity and I’d be keen to discuss this with you.
Should you have any questions then please let me know, likewise if any of your pupils or their parents/guardians would like to discuss the opportunities then please feel free to pass on my contact details.
