Graduate Trainee Accountant (ACA)

Nyman Libson Paul is an 16 partner firm of Chartered Accountants, based in London.

We are the leading advisors to the UK Entertainment & Media industry. Over the years we have looked after some of the biggest and brightest stars and projects in the Film, TV, Music and Theatre sectors which continues to this day. Our knowledge and expertise has developed into the Animation, Video Games and Digital sectors as we continue to evolve with our client base.

We are looking for between four and seven graduates each year to enter into a three year Training Contract and a full training programme is provided. We have high standards and are looking for candidates with excellent academic qualifications as well as drive, ambition and a thirst for success.    

At Nyman Libson Paul you will be given responsibility at an early stage in your career, firstly because we believe that there is no substitute for experience and secondly we want to foster the skills to enable you to think on your feet.

We will encourage you to maximise your potential with excellent career prospects as our emphasis is on internal promotion to both manager and partner level.

You’ll enjoy a competitive salary and an excellent package (with salary increases based on exam and work performances). There is also huge potential to progress within the firm. Add to this the opportunities and varied lifestyle that working in the Capital has to offer and it all adds up to a very rewarding opportunity.

What can you expect from a career with Nyman Libson Paul

You will not be tethered to your desk labouring over never-ending jobs. Instead, our students deal directly with a range of clients from major film and television production and distribution companies, West End theatres, cinema and media personalities through to manufacturing companies, hotels, restaurants and professional firms.

We encourage our staff to provide fast, imaginative and practical solutions to our clients’ business problems and while liaising with our tax department, you will be involved in both corporate and personal tax issues.

The benefits of training with a medium-size firm like Nyman Libson Paul

A major benefit of training with a medium sized firm (compared with a much larger firm) is the depth and variety of assignments you will be involved with. You will have exposure to a wide range of assignments with clients of all sizes in various industry sectors.

In larger firms, trainees often spend much of their training confined to audit work because of the sheer scale of audit work. Audit work is just one small aspect of an assignment and in a medium size firm such as Nyman Libson Paul, you will benefit from having exposure to many different areas of client work.

In addition, you’ll tend to work with far more clients in a medium size firm (giving you a broad ranging experience) because the time spent at each client tends to be far less than that of a larger firm.

With a medium size firm, you’ll also benefit from involvement from the firm’s Partners, who will take a direct interest in your development and support you through your training.
