  • Perform audit support work across our broad range of clients.

Your typical day will vary between:

  • Producing models and financial reporting figures; and
  • Developing client relationships through meetings, social activities and developing an understanding of their business/industry.

However, we understand things don't always go to plan – so if you don't meet our minimum requirements, please let us know if you have any exceptional achievements or extenuating circumstances which affected your results. We also consider your achievements in the context of your socio-economic background, so encourage you to submit your contextual information.
