Join our 12-month paid placement as part of your sandwich degree course and discover what it’s really like to work in business. Gain hands-on experience, build a network of contacts and get advice from our expert mentors.
This particular industrial placement role provides an exciting opportunity to work across our corporate tax and accounting and business advisory teams on 6-month rotation in each.
Area of Responsibilities
No matter which team you start your rotation in first, at RSM you’ll be a key member of the team from day one. This rotational placement programme will allow you to experience working in both corporate tax and the accounting and business advisory teams alongside current trainees and experienced members of the firm.
You’ll get involved in client work very quickly and get the chance to learn about different types of businesses from varying industry sectors. This hands-on early experience is invaluable as you take the next steps in your career. You’ll also benefit from on-the-job training from more senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role.
At RSM, you’ll discover a culture that nurtures individuality and an environment where everyone is supported to reach their potential. If you perform well, you could be given the opportunity to join one of our Graduate training programmes that will help you kick-start your business career. With us, you’ll always be moving forward.
We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are always up for a challenge. Both teams are technically demanding disciplines, so we look for students who are quick to grasp new subjects. It’s important you also have confidence with numbers and great attention to detail. You’ll often need to explain complex financial information, so you’ll need excellent written and verbal communication skills. What separates us from our competitors is the financial acumen we demonstrate and we expect that right from the start from our people. We also look for team players who enjoy interacting with others and are curious about how businesses work.
