Senior Associates

The second step in your career is just as important as your first. Getting your first job is something to be proud of. Planning the second stage in your career, is just as important.

When searching for your second job you’re likely to have an informed view of what you’re looking for, and where you want your skills and experience to take you in the medium and long term.

A bit like dating, you’ll be looking for an employer to match your career aspirations. Somewhere you can hit the ground running, bringing value to your new employer with your knowledge, skills and experience, but also be stretched and challenged through interesting projects you’ll be working on. This is why we’re the perfect career match. We can provide all sorts of opportunities for people looking to join us at Senior Associate grade.

Senior Associates are a grade just below manager, they’re the cornerstone of our business, and the grade our graduate trainees move to once they’ve completed their training programme. Like our graduates, Senior Associates enjoy a structured training and development programme to support them in their career and their career aspirations.

Who we're looking for

You might be surprised by the diversity of opportunities available with us. If you have technology skills, and are interested in working in Cyber Security, Data and Analytics or perhaps Technology Consulting, this area of our business is fast-growing, which means lots of opportunities. Or perhaps you've recently qualified in your accounting exams and have the professional qualifications needed to join our Assurance or Tax practice.

We'd recommend you spend the time looking across all our business areas and specialist practices within them, to explore the breadth of opportunity we have available. Whichever area of our business you join, our scale and reach will help you enjoy incredible career variety.

We’re looking for people who will bring the enthusiasm, motivation and flexibility to seize the opportunities available. In return we’ll provide the tools and infrastructure to help you progress your career in the direction you'd like it to go, to help your reach your potential.

So if you’re thinking - ‘Where can I take my career?’, ‘How can I work on more interesting and complex projects?’ ‘How can I work with iconic clients and help them with their most important problems?', then we have something to offer you.


By now you may know where you want the next step in your career to be, and a good idea of where you could be best suited. Or, you may be open to hearing about all the different areas that your skills, experience and qualifications could be valued. If that's the case, we're happy to work with you and explore which of our business areas could be right for you, and support you in taking that second step in your career.
