Over the next few weeks, we’ll be on the road at graduate recruitment fairs around the country.
It’s a part of my job that I really love. Along with some of our current trainees, I get to meet graduates from different backgrounds, talking about our work, trainee scheme and future career opportunities.
We’re a really friendly team and we will be waiting to welcome you and chat about our work and your future career at these events:
- Glasgow, SEC, 3 October (2pm -7pm)
- Glasgow, ICAS office, 12 October (6.30pm-8.30pm)
- Edinburgh, CA House, 19 October (6.30pm-8.30pm)
- Edinburgh, Corn Exchange, 26 October (11.00am – 3.00pm)
Our trainees come from a variety of backgrounds – just graduated, mature students or people looking to change career, from a vast range of degree subjects. We have auditors with degrees as varied as Law and philosophy. What matters is that you have a 2:1 degree or above in any discipline, as well as strong numerical and analysis skills.
We have recruited 15 graduate trainees this year. Our graduate trainees are vital to our business and, if you’re successful in joining our 2018 training scheme you’ll find there are loads of benefits. This includes:
- Getting full sponsorship to become a qualified Chartered Accountant with ICAS
- Receiving a starting salary of £21,658 and bonus potential
- Flexible working
- Having fantastic job opportunities when you qualify.
And that’s not all. One of the great advantages of working with us is that, from early in your career, you’ll be working as part of our audit teams, helping audit £40 billion of public money – that’s the money which funds the vital public services you, your family and friends use each and every day. You will also travel across Scotland as you work on different audits.
If this sounds like a great opportunity, then come and see us and find out more. Our trainees are ambitious and have a passion for helping improve public services in Scotland.
There’s plenty of information on our website and you can watch our short animation, giving you an insight into our work.
