Our clients are operating in uncertain times. It’s our job to work with them to help them to grow sustainably and fulfil their responsibilities.

Right from the start, you’ll develop relationships built on credibility and trust with clients across a wide range of sectors. Getting to the heart of how they work and what challenges they face, you’ll help us provide the business and financial advice they need to grow and make the right decisions about the future.

  • you’ll also travel to our internal training centre, Bradenham manor, for a two-day workshop to help you on your way to becoming a credible business adviser.
  • and if all of the above is not enough to keep you busy, you’ll spend the course of your placement working on a firm-wide project, which is connected to our purpose, based on a nationwide issue, culminating in an end of internship presentation

  • you should share our CLEARR values – Collaboration, Leadership, Excellence, Agility, Respect & Responsibility

  • able to analyse the numbers and back them up with strategic advice, you must be a great relationship builder who can inspire everyone around you with your energy and ideas.
  • you should also work well with others and take ownership of the part you play.

We have a flexible approach to academic requirements. We consider academic achievements, but your strengths, motivations and connection with us and our values are more important. We’re looking for people with a broad range of interests and experiences.
Applications for our internship programme open on 1st December 2017 and we expect to have filled the majority of our roles by the end of February 2018. Penultimate year undergraduate students can apply. We encourage applications from all degree disciplines.
