Access Accountancy

At RSM we want to give people the chance to join us based on merit, not background.

We believe that academic track record is only one indicator of someone’s potential to become a great accountant. Personality, passion and originality are all vital skills for delivering the service we provide to our clients.

This is why we are a member of Access Accountancy, a UK-wide scheme to encourage students to consider a career in accountancy.

Access Accountancy gives students the opportunity to gain real life work experience. During 30 or more hours practical work placement, students will develop skills to improve their employability and understand what is involved in a career in accountancy. We’re one of a group of firms that have together committed to offering 750 work placements to students from disadvantaged backgrounds every year. 

Who can take part?

The scheme is for students who attend state schools where a higher than average number are eligible for free school meals. Students who are the first member of their immediate family to attend university may also consider applying.

Join RSM and be part of a team that makes a difference to your community.
