We are SWAT

Finding excellent graduates for a number of Accountancy firms in London and the South East.

Our Culture - What we do

We have provided accountancy training, consultancy and support to firms throughout the UK since 1976.

As part of the support we offer firms, we recruit graduates as Graduate Trainee Accountants and help the firms transform them into Chartered Accountants.

This is where you come in! We are looking for top talent with a great eye for detail, communication skills, and ambition to step into one of these roles and make it your own.

Training in a small to medium sized accountancy practice offers many benefits over and above much larger organisations:

Firstly, you will have exposure to a wide variety of assignments with clients of all sized in various industry sectors, and you’ll get to work with far more of them than at a larger firm. You will also benefit from exposure to many different areas of client work – not just audit.

Secondly, rather than being one of hundreds (if not thousands) of trainees, you are one of a very select few. This means that you will work directly with higher level staff.


Next, you will have the ability to reach partner level far more quickly as you will be well known to your colleagues and management due to the smaller size of the firm.

Finally – you will have a life outside work! Not only will you leave at a reasonable hour, but the firms we recruit for also often have social events on. They are close knit teams who work hard during the day, but enjoy having fun outside work too.

When I applied to SWAT I did not think that 4 years later I would be a Manager in a medium sized firm.
