Work Placements – Access Accountancy

Our week long placements programme enable students to develop a greater understanding of careers in accountancy and tax

Twice a year we offer a five-day paid work experience programme through Access Accountancy, a collaboration of more than 26 accountancy firms committed to opening doors to the accountancy profession for people from all social backgrounds.

During the programme, you’ll get the opportunity to meet business leaders (Including our CEO, Nimesh Shah) and make valuable connections with experienced accountancy professionals.

You’ll gain hands on experience as you are mentored throughout the course of the programme, shadowing real life tasks and spending time with our accountancy and tax teams. You will take away some fantastic experience, and insights which you can use throughout your career.

Our Early Careers Recruitment Team will also help you build your interview skills, demonstrate how to make your application stand out, and discuss your career options with you. You can expect to receive some extremely valuable feedback and advice which you can use throughout your entire career. We will even help you enhance your CV!
