A background in accountancy is not essential, although you will obviously need to be numerate, enjoy working with figures and be reasonably computer literate. You will also need to be a good communicator and feel comfortable dealing with people.

Training Provided:
Initial training comprises a fully structured course, with attendance at our head office in Derbyshire, sandwiched between time spent in home study. The detailed syllabus addresses all aspects of the business.

Chesterfield head office

Support Services:
Support is always available from our management team or via the support helpline. During training you will receive a complete set of Certax Accounting Manuals, which can be used for guidance once your branch is opened.
