To register as a delegate for an event you must complete a registration form.

This information enables us to process and fulfil your enrolment online so that we can contact you about the events for which you have expressed interest. Optionally, you may provide demographic information (such as company name and position). If you do provide such information we are able to use it to provide a more personalized experience on our website.
Careers and job applications
To apply for a graduate training contract or the AAT training scheme online you will need to complete an online application form. The form asks you to enter information about your education, employment history and similar matters. This allows our recruitment personnel to make an informed decision as to whether to proceed with your application. Where the information provided is sensitive (such as your racial background or your state of health) you expressly consent to our use of the information to assess your application and to allow us to carry out equal opportunities monitoring.
Please note that the internet may not be as secure as other communication methods. If you prefer you may print out the application form and post or fax it to us at Devonshire House, 60 Goswell Road, London, EC1M 7AD, fax number 020 7566 4010.
To apply for any other positions with the firm you may supply us with your email address. This will trigger an email from us to you inviting you to send your curriculum vitae. Any information you send us for the purpose of a job application will be treated by us with the greatest care and for that purpose only.
