During your placement you will benefit from a bookkeeping course, as well as exposure to a number of teams and departments.
After your placement, should you wish to pursue in a career in accountancy, you will have the opportunity to consider the firm’s graduate positions where three-year training contracts are available across all our offices with a view to becoming an ACA/CA qualified accountant.

Applicants must be in their penultimate year of their degree programme, expecting at least a 2:1 in any discipline and have at least 300 UCAS points, or equivalent, gained at one sitting. You will also need to have excellent GSCE results with a minimum grade B in English and Maths.
