Graduate Business Programme

A unique programme that allows you to experience different business areas while training for the Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business before deciding whether to specialise

You know you want to build a career with a market leading organisation and gain an industry leading qualification.

But you’re not quite sure where you might fit in or which area you want to specialise in. If that sounds like you then this role could be just what you're looking for. On joining the Graduate Business Programme, you’ll be part of our flexible talent pool where you’ll find yourself in the team or project that needs your skills the most. This could be in our lines of service Audit, Consulting, Tax or Deals. 

 

 

 

You could get the opportunity to gain experience across different parts of our business, or you may become more specialised in one particular business area. Either way, you’ll have the opportunity to work with cutting edge technology and with some of the brightest minds in business, on a range of market leading clients across a variety of industries, leveraging our global network.

You’ll be based in London, Birmingham or Manchester, but we’ll need you to work flexibly as your expertise will be in demand across our business, so you may also find yourself working in other locations across the UK. On this pathway, you can remain in the flexible talent pool for all four years before specialising in a line of service, or you may be able to specialise in a line of service earlier.
