Hi! I am currently looking at changing my career towards the financial sector and came across this company. Their Accountancy program seems good. Has anyone used them before?

There is much talk about the company being a scam.

Their previous posts on TSR included an elaborate web of fake accounts (over 15) all commenting on the same thread and targeting those who accused of being a scam. The posts have since been removed. I personally would not want to be purchasing an internship from a company who participates in such activities, besides the fact you're paying for an internship which also seems inherently wrong to me.

I cannot confirm the company is a total scam however urge you to conduct a good amount of research and keep your eyes out for fake reviews especially on TSR and Trust Pilot.

Good luck!

Oh, that does not sound good.

I did my research and I asked my mum to check them out she is a solicitor. They look legit to me they are an accredited company by fair train and REC the recruitment body.

I am not doing an internship it's a mentorship program.

I am sold and I like the concept I will most likely enrol over the next few days.

Thanks for your help

I enrolled in their accounting program few months ago. I was assigned in their partner firm and did the mentorship and work experience with a critic mentor. The tasks I received was really challenging. If you have basic accounting background I suggest you do their basic level of bookkeeping and payroll
