Our offer to you…
Be part of the world’s leading professional services network and enjoy the benefits that come with that. You’ll work directly with big name clients where you’ll get to grips with the value they’re looking for by getting into the detail.

Here, you’ll be part of the team that gets to grips with every aspect of clients’ activities, understanding their business to identify where our high-quality audit can add insight and value. It’s critical work that underpins investor confidence, makes our clients more competitive and develops the market economy.
What you’d do

Work with our prestigious client list and you’ll develop the business skills, knowledge and relationships you need to do well in a career that’s about so much more than numbers. You’ll go beyond the obvious and develop real insights into a client’s markets, technology, people and management, as well as its finances.

These qualities, plus the fact we’re passionate about making a difference to our clients, set us apart.
You can join our mainstream Assurance (Financial Audit) business and work with a variety of different clients. You’ll be part of the team that audits the greatest number of FTSE 100 companies, as well as thousands of smaller organisations. As we work in many different industry areas, for example we have a large financial services practice, you’ll also be able to gain specific industry experience.
Or you could join one of our specialist Assurance teams. Either way, you’ll benefit from arguably the best business training going. Our specialist teams include:
Public Services – as the name suggests, you’ll focus on clients in the public sector and help make sure taxpayers’ money is being spent wisely.
Risk Assurance Services – here you’ll help clients deliver business controls to protect and strengthen every aspect of their business, from people to performance, systems to strategy, business plans to business resilience.
Technology Assurance – part of risk assurance, our technology assurance specialists work with clients to help them anticipate, manage and mitigate risks around their IT systems and support them with their IT security and controls.
Pensions Audit and Investment Funds: Constant change and intense press coverage makes this a fascinating, high-profile area to work in. You’d help pensions trustees come up with strategies that generate the best benefits for their members.
