What is the Accounting Technician Apprenticeship?

This is a modern and practical route to a career in accountancy where employers take on students on a two-year, work-based learning programme.

We source individuals interested in a career in accountancy, and you select the candidates who best fit your employment requirements.

You pay your apprentice at least the minimum wage (€19,000 per annum) and college tuition is fully funded by the State.

The Accounting Technician Apprenticeship matches the accountancy and finance recruitment needs of employers in industry, practice and the public sector.

In September 2019 locations for the programme will include Dublin, Monaghan, Cork, Waterford and Wicklow.

Tap into a vast talent pool to diversify your workforce and ensure your organisation has a skilled body of staff for accountancy and finance roles.

Grow and nuture talented participants with the potential to become versatile accounting technicians with wide ranging skills.
