What does our financial services team do?
Our financial services team provide assurance services including regulatory compliance assessments, risk management development and internal audit. The provision of assurance is an independent and objective activity designed to add value and improve an organisation’s operations. It helps an organisation accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance.
What can you expect?
A career in financial services is infinitely varied, interesting and rewarding. No client is the same, so you’ll be constantly challenged. With our support, you’ll get the chance to grow professionally, with access to structured training and guidance from expert mentors.
RSM’s graduate programme in financial services will provide you with the knowledge of how different organisations work including banks, building societies, insurance firms, consumer finance provides and investment managers. Having this exposure gives you a great foundation to build your business knowledge.
We have a varied client base, for which we deliver work either ad-hoc or as part of an annual cycle. We visit our clients to undertake fieldwork which results in documenting controls, testing strategies and our findings. Reports are then written to provide the client with the observations, recommendations for action and overall opinion. You’ll be advising clients on how they can better manage their strategic, financial, operational and regulatory risks as well as helping to identify efficiencies which will help add value to the client’s internal processes.
Most days, you will travel straight from home to your clients, which can be up to 1 hour 30 minutes away, with the option, depending on the needs of the business and our clients, when not working at client sites to work in your nearest RSM office of from home as appropriate. For all roles outside of Central London, we require successful candidates to have a full UK driving licence and access to a vehicle by the time they come to the end of their 6-month probation with RSM. For London roles, access to a car is desirable but not essential.
When you join this team, you will work towards the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (CIA) qualification. Once completed, you will move onto the CMIIA qualification. Please note, that in each intake we have a set number of ACA (CA in Scotland) and CIA/CMIIA positions. Only graduates with 112 UCAS points will be eligible for the ACA/CA positions. Study options will be discussed with you during the assessment process. These opportunities are limited and subject to availability.
