What you'll be up to..

Working in our Not-for-Profit specialist Audit team you'll be getting stuck in tangible client work learning the principles of Audit.


The first two weeks will involve a technical induction giving you the foundations of knowledge to begin your journey. You’ll attend an external coaching session, meet with your line manager and network with our wide range of trainees, managers and partners.

Day to day you'll be:


  • Working on client site getting to know the "behind the scenes" of how a business operates
  • Testing checks and balances to ensure they work how they’re supposed to
  • Analysing a variety of financial records and data ensuring it shows a "true and fair reflection"
  • Working collaboratively in a team to deliver your part of the audit process
  • Mucking-in on extra projects and ad-hoc tasks when it counts


Regardless of what level you join at, you’ll be given opportunities to really shine with regular feedback to help stretch your personal development. We take growth seriously which is why you’ll have full support with your studies including study leave, bonuses for first time passes and a wellbeing coach to help balance the work/study lifestyle.



What we’re looking for:

Confidence, enthusiasm and drive all tied in with a friendly attitude.


You need to be confident working with numbers taking pride in your attention to detail. Some accounts experience would be an advantage.


We encourage freedom giving people the flexibility to work in the way that suits them best, as such you also need to be comfortable working on your own taking a pro-active approach. 


To help set people up for success we prefer students to have a minimum of 112 UCAS points, however – drive an ambition is just as important! As such we welcome applications from all backgrounds.
