Price Bailey introduces more trainee opportunities

  • Price Bailey is set to welcome 41 trainees in 2023, with the firm receiving nine new graduates and school leavers onto their trainee programmes in June.
  • The firm will soon begin recruitment for its inaugural winter intake. This comes amid continued year on year growth in new trainees and a continued commitment to investing in talent at the early careers level.

Price Bailey’s trainee programmes offer opportunities for school leavers and graduates, which are funded by the Apprenticeship Levy, as well as those looking for shorter term industry placements.

To be considered for a place, school leavers must hold a minimum of 112 UCAS points, with graduates requiring a minimum of a 2:2 in any undergraduate degree subject.

Duncan Crooks, a Senior Manager who leads our Resourcing function and specialises in trainee recruitment said:


At Price Bailey, we know that diverse talent can be found from all walks of life and academic backgrounds, so we are committed to ensuring that our trainee programmes are accessible to all young people who have a passion for accountancy and an eagerness to learn.

“The biggest quality we look for in our trainee candidates, is the right attitude and a good level of numerical aptitude.

“Our trainees begin working with clients from day one, so having a good level of communication skills is also beneficial, as well as time management and a willingness to embody the PB way; being a team player, working hard and supporting their colleagues.”

Price Bailey’s trainee programmes run for between three and five years, with candidates sponsored to do their ACA qualifications and ultimately become a qualified accountant on completion of the programme.

Trainees have the opportunity to experience and ultimately specialise in numerous areas of expertise including Audit, Accounting, Tax and more.

Crooks continues:

“Our trainee programmes and the young talent they attract are the future of the firm, I’m delighted to welcome our 41 new starters and announce the launch of our new trainee winter intake programme.

“I wish all new starters every success in their future careers.”

Price Bailey will begin its February 2024 trainee recruitment at the end of July.
