Description

  • Our team carries out a detailed, risk-based review of a company’s financial records and control environment to form an opinion on whether the financial statements prepared by the directors are true and fair.
  • A robust audit challenges the financial operations of a company and improves the internal workings of the audited business. This is critical in today’s business world as the financial statements are one of only a small number of documents that a company will place into the public domain, and a quality audit gives confidence in what is delivered to all stakeholders.

Requirements

  • We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are always up for a challenge. Audit is a technically demanding discipline, so we look for students who are quick to grasp new subjects. It’s important you also have confidence with numbers and great attention to detail. You’ll often need to explain complex financial information, so you’ll need excellent written and verbal communication skills. What separates us from our competitors is the financial acumen we demonstrate and we expect that right from the start from our people.
  • At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important.
  • 112 UCAS (new tariff) across 3 A Levels or an equivalent level 3 qualification or 104 UCAS (new tariff) across 4 Scottish Highers/Advanced Highers. Please note, RSM does not accept General Studies, AS levels or the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
  • A predicted or obtained honours degree.
  • UCAS changed their points system so under the old tariff it would be 280 or 260 points respectively.

Responsibilities

  • At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. You’ll get involved in client work very quickly, initially working as part of a larger team before taking on individual responsibility for projects. The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to will help you kick-start your career. You could be working with a wide variety of organisations, including large listed financial institutions, national retail chains, and high-profile charities, as well as some of our international clients that operate throughout the UK and beyond.
  • RSM’s graduate apprenticeship in external audit will give you access to top quality career development. Alongside hands-on experience, you’ll benefit from on-the-job training from more senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role. With our support, you’ll become a true trusted adviser to your clients in the future.
  • 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).

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.
