We have 12 offices around the UK, Ireland and Jersey, and we’re a member of Nexia International, a top 10 global network of independent accounting and consulting firms. This means we’re well-connected to thousands of colleagues around the world, exchanging knowledge and professional expertise daily.

Our culture and values are at the heart of everything we do. We value a personal approach to our work, driven by trusted and talented people. We also have a strong sense of corporate responsibility, aiming to manage the impact of our business on people, suppliers, communities and the environment.

We can offer you much more responsibility than you might expect. You’ll be working on real projects and liaising with our clients from the start — it’s our approach to clients that makes this a more fulfilling place to work.

A 12-month placement or 6-week summer internship here means having more you-time than you might get in other firms. We believe in getting that work/life balance just right because it’s not just good for you, it’s good for us too.
