What does our Accounting and Business Advisory team do?

Our accounting and business advisory team makes sure companies’ financial statements comply with government regulations and industry standards. We also advise on business strategies, provide companies with financial forecasts and prepare management accounts that show an accurate picture of business performance.

Our work helps put a set of figures into perspective. We help our clients understand what the management accounts actually say about the state of their business. We help them identify key areas where they could improve performance.

We also provide daily advice to clients across a wide range of industry sectors. Many do not have in-house advisers who can help them deal with day-to-day issues, so our team is often the first port of call when they have financial or business-related questions.

What can you expect?

At RSM, you’ll get involved in client work very quickly, and get the chance to learn about different types of businesses from varying industry sectors. Our placement programme in accounting and business advisory offers top quality career development. You will experience working in the accounting and business advisory 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.

The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to early on will help you jump-start your accountancy career. When you join our team, you’ll enjoy a powerful combination of on-the-job learning and structured training that will help you develop in the role.

What we look for

We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are quick to learn and always up for a challenge. You’ll be working on a wide variety of projects, so it’s important that you’re adaptable and highly organised. Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as you’ll be communicating at all levels, often explaining complex information both in meetings and in written reports. We also look for team players who enjoy interacting with others and are curious about how businesses work.

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 will need:

  • 112 UCAS (new tariff) across 3 A Levels or 104 (new tariff) across 4 Highers/Advanced Highers or an equivalent level of study (excluding AS levels and general studies);
  • A predicted honours degree.

UCAS changed their points system so under the old tariff it would be 280 or 260 points respectively.
