At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. You’ll get involved in client work very quickly, initially working as part of a larger team before taking on individual responsibility for projects. Once you’ve completed your initial professional qualifications, the complexity of your workload will increase, and you’ll have the opportunity to take on more individual responsibilities and get involved in more challenging issues. With us, you’ll have the space to grow and be challenged. Alongside hands-on experience, you’ll 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. Restructuring is a technically demanding discipline, so we look for students who are quick to grasp new subjects. It’s important to have an inquisitive mind and pay close attention to detail. You’ll often need to review complex financial information and report on any unusual transactions or patterns which you spot, 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.
