About RSM

Welcome to RSM. As one of the largest networks of audit, tax and consulting firms in the world, we help students kick-start their career in business.

Whether you join us in audit, tax, consulting, corporate finance, risk advisory or accounting, you’ll enjoy a powerful combination of on-the-job learning and expert training – not to mention an impressive client list to work with. We support organisations across a wide range of sectors, so you could be working with premier league footballers and tech start-ups one day, and charities and multinationals the next.

External Audit Assistant

Join our external audit team on a work experience opportunity and take a bold first step towards your future career. Become part of our team for up to a year and get business experience that will help you really stand out.

What does our external audit team do?

Our team undertakes a detailed, risk-based review of a company’s financial records and control environment to form an opinion on whether the financial statements prepared by the directors are fair and accurate.

A robust audit challenges the financial operations of a company and improves the internal workings of the audited organisation.

This is critical in today’s business world as the financial statements are one of only a small number of documents that a company will place into the public domain, and a quality audit gives confidence in what is delivered to all stakeholders.

What can you expect?

The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to will help you kick-start your career. You could be working with a wide variety of organisations, including large listed financial institutions, national retail chains, and high- profile charities, as well as some of our international clients that operate throughout the UK and beyond.

At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. Our internship programme allows you to experience working in the audit team alongside current trainees and experienced members of the firm. This hands-on early experience is invaluable as you take the next steps in your career.

You’ll also benefit from on-the-job training from more senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role.

What we look for

We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are always up for a challenge. Audit is a technically demanding discipline, so we look for students who are quick to grasp new subjects. It’s important you also have confidence with numbers and great attention to detail. You’ll often need to explain complex financial information, so you’ll need excellent written and verbal communication skills. What separates us from our competitors is the financial acumen we demonstrate and we expect that right from the start from our people.

If that sounds like you, we know you’ll enjoy being part of our team.

Entry requirements

At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important. You’ll need a minimum of Grade C in English and Maths, 280 UCAS and at least a 2:1 degree to apply (or equivalent).
