With a commitment to ‘grow our own’ talent and with a global network that spans 120 countries, RSM offers you a world of opportunity to expand your horizons.
Our international secondment programme gives the opportunity to work in an RSM Global office overseas. It’s a great life experience but it’s also an opportunity to discover new ways of working, how our network firms operate, build valuable contacts and develop essential skills that will boost your career. It will open your eyes to diverse and new ways of thinking that will help you stay one step ahead on your return to the UK.
We offer a range of options, from three-month desk swaps to strategic two-year placements. These take place across the majority of our departments including audit, tax and consulting in addition to the support areas of our business.
How will a secondment help my career?
As the business world becomes ever-more global, our clients increasingly need advice and guidance to support their expansion into new markets. An international secondment gives you the chance to deepen your understanding of international regulations and cultural differences.
Duncan Beckwith completed an eight-month international secondment to the Corporate Tax team in the New York office. He is currently based in the Farringdon Street office. Here he shares his thoughts on the secondment.
Where can I go?
There’s a lot of choice - our network spans 820 offices across the Americas, Europe, MENA, Africa and Asia Pacific. In recent years our employees have enjoyed secondments to USA, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, South Africa, France and Spain. Our Global Mobility programme is growing all the time, so there’s plenty of opportunity to find a placement that fits your goals.
If you are excited by the thought of a different experience but an international secondment isn’t right for you, there are also secondment opportunities throughout the UK. Choose to work in one of our 33+ locations from Southampton to the Shetland Islands and discover how RSM operates in different locations. Or if you prefer to stay closer to home you may wish to be seconded into a new department in your local office.
