What it's like to be a trainee at Sanne

I was lucky enough to secure a full-time position on Sanne’s trainee programme to study my ACCA qualification...three years later I was ACCA qualified. I am now part of the management team in the Private Equity division, which really goes to show the importance of Sanne’s trainee scheme and the progression that it presents to individuals on the scheme.”
