Our Graduate Programme

Applications for our 2024 Graduate Programme are now closed.

To join us as a graduate in February 2025, you'll need to finish your degree by then, and meet the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand's requirements to enter the Chartered Accountants College.

From the beginning, you’ll work on a varied portfolio of clients and enjoy incredible support for your learning and development. This includes the outstanding in-house training, paid support towards your Chartered Account studies, and an extensive mentoring system.

The Graduate Programme begins with a four-day induction, where you’ll receive:

  • training from our specialists and technical experts; and
  • the tools you need to do your job, including a laptop and mobile phone.

The induction is also a great opportunity to get to know other people in your year group. They’ll be a source of friendship and support in the years to come as you study, work, and find solutions together.
