Banking & FinanceReading


  • Our graduate apprenticeship programme within the deal services team will give you all the skills and support you need to unlock a future in corporate finance that’s packed with opportunities and new experiences. You’ll enjoy a fast-tracked business career that recognises your potential and rewards your ambition.
  • When you join our team, you’ll enjoy a powerful combination of on-the-job learning and structured training – not to mention an impressive client list to work with. You’ll discover a culture that nurtures individuality and an environment where everyone is supported to reach their potential. With us, you’ll always be moving forward.


  • We’re on the lookout for graduates with a ‘can-do’ attitude, who are prepared to work hard and take on high levels of responsibility. In corporate finance we work closely with external stakeholders and other advisers, so we also look for team players who enjoy interacting with others and are curious about how businesses work.
  • Time management and organisational skills are key as you may be working on multiple projects at the same time, as well as studying towards your professional accountancy qualification. You should be confident with numbers, have excellent written communication skills, and a keen eye for attention to detail.
  • 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.

  • Whichever team you join, you will be working on live projects and given responsibility from day one, after a brief, intensive training course with your peers. You will be a valued member of the deal team and included in key discussions and meetings with senior internal and external stakeholders to the firm. You’ll learn what makes a business attractive to investors and buyers, and the possible funding options for companies looking to grow. You’ll be working with businesses and entrepreneurs from a broad range of industries and sectors, as well as liaising with experts and advisors from other fields, such as law and banking. This hands-on experience is invaluable as you take the next steps in your career.
  • At RSM, 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, including courses to teach you corporate finance specific skills. Our residential courses give you the opportunity to interact with your peers and learn directly from service line experts within our departments.
  • Depending on the team you join and the location, you will work towards either 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), or the Corporate Finance Qualification (CFQ).
