Description

  • Our accounting and business advisory team makes sure companies’ financial statements comply with government regulations and industry standards. We also advise on business strategies, provide companies with financial forecasts and prepare management accounts that show an accurate picture of business performance.
  • Our work helps put a set of figures into perspective. We help our clients understand what the management accounts actually say about the state of their business. We help them identify key areas where they could improve performance.
  • We also provide daily advice to clients across a wide range of industry sectors. Many do not have in-house advisers who can help them deal with day-to-day issues, so our team is often the first port of call when they have financial or business-related questions.

Requirements

  • We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are quick to learn and always up for a challenge. You’ll be working on a wide variety of projects, so it’s important that you’re adaptable and highly organised. Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as you’ll be communicating at all levels, often explaining complex information both in meetings and in written reports. We also look for team players who enjoy interacting with others and are curious about how businesses work.
  • At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important.
  • 112 UCAS points across 3 A Levels or an equivalent level 3 qualification, or 104 UCAS points across 4 Scottish Highers/Advanced Highers or Irish Leaving Certificate (Higher Level);
  • A predicted/obtained honours degree.

Responsibilities

  • RSM’s graduate apprenticeship in accounting and business advisory offers top quality career development. With us, you’ll get involved in client work very quickly, and get the chance to learn about different types of businesses from varying industry sectors. The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to early on will help you jump-start your accountancy career.
  • When you join this team, you’ll work towards the ACA qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), or your Chartered Accountancy (CA) qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) or with Chartered Accountants Ireland (CAI).
  • Initially, you’ll be working as part of a larger team. Once you’ve completed your initial professional qualifications, the complexity of your workload will increase and you’ll have the opportunity to take on more individual responsibilities and get involved in more challenging accounting issues, such as applying international accounting standards. With RSM, you’ll have the space to grow and be challenged and with our support, you’ll become a true trusted adviser to your clients.

Application process

  • Please note, for those who perform well throughout our assessment process, should your first preference be unavailable, you could potentially be offered a role in another location or department. This would always be discussed with you in this instance.
  • RSM will only take one application into consideration per recruitment cycle. We do not accept multiple applications to different vacancies.
