About Audit

We provide another alternative to university which allows you to develop a professional career and gain valuable hands on experience whilst studying for accountancy qualifications. We have vacancies within our Audit teams nationally.

Companies with a turnover of up to £20million per annum tend to form the majority of the client base. Our client base is diverse, providing the opportunity to learn about different types of organisations from varying industry sectors.

Aside from the statutory audit of the financial statements of companies, the department handles specialist work such as the audits of pension schemes, charities and grants claims as well as bespoke work such as due diligence and other transaction-related projects.

Our trainees play a key role in supporting the work described above and gain tremendous experience to provide top quality career development. You will benefit from on the job training from more senior members of the team, as well as joining peers on internal training courses that will develop you as an individual.

You will become involved in client work very quickly, initially working as part of a larger team – perhaps taking responsibility for specific audit tests or aspects of the audit file.

Your training and development

As a school or college leaver, we know you’ll want real hands on experience, enough scope to carve out your own position and a career with excellent long term prospects.

Your development within your role will be optimised by training from our RSM Tenon Academy, our programme of internal courses, external training and on-the-job mentoring. Highly regarded within the industry, you will embark on a programme that is among the best. Our on-going structured programme of skills development will support your career post qualification ensuring you are well-equipped to meet both our clients’ and your own personal expectations throughout your career with RSM Tenon.

When joining the Audit team we will support you through your Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) qualification.

Following the successful completion of CFAB you may wish to go on to study one of the following:

• Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW)
• Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland (ICAS)

Whichever qualification you choose, we will give you all the support you need to help you pass your exams including fantastic tuition, exam and study leave.

Your profile:

We’re looking for enthusiastic school or college leavers, who are quick to learn, driven and dedicated. You will possess a minimum of 280 UCAS points (excluding general studies). As a school or college leaver it is assumed you will have no prior knowledge or experience of your preferred business area.

You will be passionate, highly motivated and driven towards a career in accountancy, demonstrating a mature attitude.

You will get involved in a variety of tasks and trainees will be expected to demonstrate a willingness to learn, therefore flexibility and adaptability is an absolute must!

Strong verbal communication skills are essential as trainees will communicate at all levels, often speaking with clients in person and over the phone, explaining complex information.

It is the aim of RSM Tenon to promote equal opportunities for all regardless of a person’s sex, marital status, sexual orientation, age, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or racial origins, religion, or disability in relation to all aspects of employment of its people generally and, more particularly, in relation to the recruitment, training, promotion, terms of employment, treatment and working environment of all its people.
