Join our internal audit team on a 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.
At RSM, you’ll discover a culture that nurtures individuality and an environment where everyone is supported to reach their potential.

Area of Responsibilities
At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. Our placement programme allows you to experience working in the internal audit team alongside current trainees and experienced members of the firm. 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.
Most days, you will travel straight from home to your clients, which can be up to 1 hour 30 minutes away, with the option, depending on the needs of the business and our clients, when not working at client sites to work in your nearest RSM office or from home as appropriate.
Internal auditors spend a lot of time working independently so we’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are quick to learn and always up for a challenge. That said, you’ll always be fully supported during the audits – you’ll have a dedicated line manager and core team to learn from and be supported by. You’ll be working on a wide variety of projects, so it’s important that you’re adaptable and highly organised. Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as you’ll be communicating at all levels, often explaining complex information both in meetings and in written reports.
At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important.
You will need:
96 UCAS points across 3 A Levels or an equivalent level 3 qualification, or 104 UCAS points across 4 Scottish Highers/Advanced Highers or Irish Leaving Certificate (Higher Level);
