Join us on this programme as an Audit apprentice, you’ll work on diverse and complex audit engagements, learning about the components that make a successful business. Using an investigative approach you’ll begin to use new technologies to analyse data and produce quality audit outcomes – all whilst studying towards a valuable professional qualification.
The work is challenging and rewarding, especially during busier periods – and throughout the programme you’ll have the resources and support you need to thrive with us and reach your full potential, learning to handle each audit engagement with confidence. Working as part of a team, you may spend time on site at the companies you're auditing, in virtual or hybrid forms of audit delivery. From the start, you'll be working on complex projects alongside some of the brightest minds in business and benefit from learning every day.
Our firm’s hybrid working model balances the flexibility of working from home with the importance of collaborating and learning in offices or at client sites. We trust our people to be where our clients need them to be, with our client-facing colleagues working together in person as often as needed. You’ll be empowered by the technology that supports us to work flexibly across our collaborative office spaces, building friendships and shared experiences, innovating and learning together with your colleagues. travel is likely for audit work and because the work is seasonal, you should expect there to be busy times of the year.
Join us and be part of an inclusive team that’s supportive of individual wellbeing and embraces diversity – and the meaningful difference this has for our people, our firm, the companies we audit and our communities. If you’re curious, resilient and agile you could thrive with us.
