You are here: Accountancy Recruitment  >  Graduate Stories

If successful, you'll join one of our accountancy firms where you will become part of a team preparing audit, accounts and tax assignments for a range of clients. Initially you'll observe and learn basic skills from more experienced colleagues. You will be involved in recording clients' systems and testing how they operate. Within weeks you should start to progress and take responsibility for small assignments.

During your second year, you'll be expected to be competent enough to supervise your junior staff and work on mid-range audits with the minimum of supervision. By the time you qualify, you should be experienced enough to oversee a complete audit, and by the third year, you could be earning a very competitive salary!

But don't just take our word for it; we have a whole collection of case studies from past and current graduates below for you to read.
