You don't have to be a Maths genius to be an accountant. At Change we believe that empathy and the ability to listen and communicate effectively are far more important than logarithms, differentiation and arithmetic progressions.


You will work on a variety of clients, including property developers,  beauticians, authors, engineering companies, retailers, web designers,  consultants and social enterprises.

The day to day work will be varied and will include bookkeeping on Excel and various online accounting packages, such as Xero, Freeagent, Quickbooks and Sage.

You will be trained how to prepare working papers and VAT returns. As you progress you will work on CIS, payroll and business tax.

You will be taught how to communicate effectively with clients and HMRC, amongst others.

About Us

Change Accountants love the stuff everyone else hates. We enjoy helping our clients deal with the hassles of payroll, time-consuming bookkeeping, and difficulties surrounding the ever-changing tax and accounts rules.

We are passionate about changing peoples perception of accounts and their own numbers by ensuring their figures are easy to understand, up to date and relevant and by ensuring we, as their trusted advisor, are approachable.

We are a paperless and electronic office. Everything is processed either online or via a computerised system, our practice revolves around IT

Change Accountants are committed to being friendly, approachable and very efficient.
