ATT Tax Trainee



9th April 2019

We are looking for an enthusiastic trainee to join our tax department in our Norwich office. 

Our tax department team has a large number of clients for which we prepare their tax returns and give tax advice on a regular basis. The work is extremely varied and interesting. 

We offer tax trainees a full training package to include professional training for the tax qualification ATT (Association of Tax Technicians) together with a structured approach to training in the office to learn how to prepare tax returns, calculate tax liabilities and many other skills required to become a fully trained member of the tax department. 

There are many routes to progress your career with us. We have opportunities to progress within the tax compliance department as well as in the tax consultancy group who specialise in other areas of tax such as Corporation Tax (for companies), Inheritance Tax, and VAT. Further exam training for the CTA (Chartered Institute of Taxation) qualification is undertaken by some of our group.

A few of our more recent trainees have made a video about their experience of working for Lovewell Blake. 

One member of our tax team has written an article providing a snapshot of her typical working week as a tax assistant which you may like to read. Here is a link to her article.

The reason our clients value us as their adviser is because we make a point of building a picture of each client, which pulls in all the things that make each one different. This allows us to wrap individual service and advice around each client, which suits them perfectly and which they really appreciate. That’s why we’re different – because each one of our clients is different. 

We don’t only understand that each of our clients are different, we understand that each of our employees are different. We work with each and every one of our employees on an individual basis to ensure the training and development they receive supports their specific learning objectives and career aspirations. We are committed to nurturing and developing the talent of all of our employees, whatever stage of their career they may be at.
