Access Accountancy at Abcam 

Abcam offers a one-week work experience programme for Access Accountancy participants at our Cambridge office. If you are interested in finding out whether Finance could be a career of interest, we’d love to hear from you. 

During the programme, you’ll have exposure to several areas of Finance:  

  • Interactions with customers and suppliers
  • Keeping accounting records 
  • How we measure our financial performance
  • Forecasting and planning
  • The role of finance in a fast-growing life science company  

You’ll have the opportunity to meet a variety of accountancy professionals and learn about their path into the profession. We’ll also offer practical workshops to boost your employability, including CV drafting, mock interviews, personal brand, and time management.   

We are offering two work experience placements to year 12 or 13 students in Easter 2022. If you wish to be considered, please apply by 25 February 2022. A CV would be great if you have one, but it’s not essential as we will help you with this, most of all we’d love a covering note of no more than 500 -words as to why you are interested in joining us. 

We understand that travel expenses may be of concern, we are’ll very well linked to public transport and will support you with this and vouchers for food in our excellent onsite café to ensure everyone has access to this  work experience opportunity.
