Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has announced the appointment of 10 new trainees in its Preston office.
The new recruits are among 288 new graduates and school leavers being taken on by the company this year, bringing RSM’s total headcount to over 3,600 people across the UK.
The new starters will begin their careers within RSM’s tax, audit, financial reporting teams.
After completing an intensive internal training course, the new recruits will commence study towards their professional ACA, AAT, ATT, ICAS, ACCA, CIA or CTA accountancy qualifications.
Five of the new recruits are school leavers, many of whom have chosen to join the RSM as an alternative to going to university.
Kevin Duffy, RSM’s office managing partner in Preston, said: “I am delighted to welcome all of our new recruits to RSM.
“Our future growth ambitions rely on attracting and developing new talent across all areas of our business. I’m delighted that so many new recruits have chosen to begin their careers with us. This is, I hope, a reflection of the training support and the career opportunities that we can offer as a firm.”
RSM offers trainees a range of career opportunities from technical development and overseas secondments to participation in key corporate and social responsibility activity, including taking on the Duke of Edinburgh Gold award.
