What kind of work would I be doing?

Each of our graduate programmes has a different focus. If you join our Audit & Assurance programme, for example, you’ll learn how to advise clients on their accounting systems and controls, ways to improve them and reduce risk. Whereas, in Technology, you’re more likely to be designing new systems or developing IT strategy. And in Tax Consulting, as you’d expect, you’ll become your clients’ expert in all things tax-related. 

All of our projects are about problem solving, which happens best when we work collaboratively. Throughout your graduate training and entire career, you’ll connect with colleagues across different teams, to tackle challenges for our clients. With more projects focused on technology and the latest digital developments, we approach every client with a clear eye on the future. It’s that vision that enables us to help the biggest businesses make some of their biggest decisions.

As our clients’ businesses grow so will your expertise. You will gain “hands on” project experience working with professional and experienced teams. You'll be encouraged and expected to think for yourself, use your initiative and work collaboratively to deliver pioneering solutions for our clients.

What is the experience like?

We offer a variety of career options where you'll learn how to create innovative business, technology and operational solutions and develop the expertise to implement them.

From the moment you join, you’ll be treated as a Business Advisor, valued for the unique contribution you make and the fresh ideas you bring. You’ll work directly with clients on projects that have a very real and meaningful impact on their success. As well as gaining a recognised professional qualification, you’ll develop the kind of rounded business skills that will serve you well regardless of where your future takes you. And you’ll get all the support you need to become the leader you know you can be.

We encourage applications from a wide range of disciplines including business, engineering, maths, science, law, technology and arts, amongst others. Our success consistently lies in the fact that we recruit people who look at complex issues through a different lens.
