Looking for quality Trainees?

In 2023, we successfully filled all 52 vacancies with high-quality trainees. This 100% success rate is a testament to our effective recruitment services.

With our deep-rooted expertise in the accountancy profession and the graduate/school leaver space, we are uniquely positioned to help you recruit the best trainees available, ensuring a seamless fit into your organisation.

Our comprehensive recruitment process includes advertising the job, reviewing CVs, testing applicants, and conducting an initial online competency interview. This ensures that only the most qualified candidates proceed to the final interview stage with you.

Our services go beyond just filling vacancies. We can guide you through the apprenticeship process, help you benchmark your offering, and manage all aspects of recruitment administration. This includes formalizing interviews, addressing candidate queries, and obtaining references for your potential hires.

At our core, we understand that we are representing your firm. That’s why we ensure every applicant, successful or not, receives exceptional service and detailed feedback. Our commitment to this approach has earned us excellent reviews from applicants on Glassdoor.

How it works

  • You provide us with details of the role, and we place an advert (no additional advertising costs to you);
  • Candidates apply by CV direct to us;
  • All applications are acknowledged, including rejections and those that pass our requirements are invited to take our online comprehensive test;
  • ‘STARS’ are identified and are offered a fast-track application route;
  • Successful applicants are invited to book an online zoom interview;
  • Interview feedback is given to every candidate;
  • Only when we are satisfied do we send candidates for a face-to-face interview with you. We provide you with their CV, test scores and interview commentary.


Recruitment can be included in your package of services with HAT. If you are looking for only recruitment support, one graduate hire is £3,200 but we can customise the offering depending on your needs. We also offer a student monitoring and guidance service.
