A new cohort were, this week, welcomed onto Larking Gowen’s professional accountancy training programme. The thirty-three, recruited as pandemic restrictions have eased, will mostly be working towards their AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians), ACA (Associate Chartered Accountant) or ATT (Association of Taxation Technicians) qualifications at the firm’s offices across Norfolk, Suffolk and North Essex.

“Our annual apprenticeship programme offers the full breadth of experience and professional support – the foundations for a varied and fulfilling career,” says Managing Partner, Julie Grimmer, who, this week, celebrates 37 years with Larking Gowen, after herself joining as a trainee.

Julie continues, “Many of our partners and employees joined as trainees and are still with us years later. I offer warm congratulations to these talented young trainees. My colleagues and I very much look forward to working with them.”

Larking Gowen has a one-hundred-year tradition of training local A-level and university graduates for their professional accountancy examinations – a tradition interrupted only by the war years.
