Industrial Placement – Accounts and Outsourcing
Each year we recruit industrial placements, these are 12 months placements for university students who are required to complete a year in industry as part of their four year degree course.
Our undergraduate placement scheme has been developed to provide students with an opportunity to gain valuable training and business experience that will:
- Provide a launch pad for your career
- Prepare you for your final year at university
- Give you an insight into the real world of accountancy or financial planning
We look to develop long term relationships with our placement students and if the placement goes well you may be offered a role to re-join Kreston Reeves on our professional training programme after you have completed your degree.
Firm Culture and Benefits

We give all of our employees the option to take one day paid each year for volunteering so they can support the charitable causes closest to them.
