We recognise the critical role the recruitment of graduates play in growing the firm’s intellectual capability and providing new ideas to ensure the firm continues to innovate.  Graduates are hired for the specific knowledge and skills taught only in higher education, and a degree speeds up the access to professional body membership.

There is an annual intake of graduates.  You are offered a full study package towards the a professional ACA or ACCA qualification  and also get to learn on the job.  You will be part of a team working on a range of assignments and will not be stuck working purely in audit or 1 discipline.
