Throughout the year we invest in the development of our people through coaching & mentoring. Across the firm we currently have 80 people completing apprenticeships or professional qualifications.
During the summer months this number increases when we employ school and university students for anything from 4-8 weeks on a paid internship basis. This year we have 12 interns across the firm, spread throughout our 6 offices.
Each year a number of the interns come to us through our links with Career Ready and others are university students who are studying towards accountancy or finance degrees.
The Career Ready interns are paired with a mentor throughout their 5th year of high school and as part of this programme they experience the world of work with us over the summer months. The internship element provides the students with invaluable experience and helps prepare them for the next stage in their life after school. Its aim is to prepare them for the world of work and we are here to help them on that journey.
Those who join us from university for a summer internship also gain many complementary skills and knowledge as they enter a busy working environment, which brings to life the daily experiences of being a professional in a progressive and fast-paced accountancy & business advisory firm. They can put into practice what they have been taught and make a real difference to the firm during their time with us. After completing their degree, many summer interns join the firm to complete their professional qualifications.
As a firm we are not only supporting our local communities and the next generation of accountancy professionals, but we also learn about ourselves and the skills our people have. Learning and growing is a two-way process and supporting an intern is a fantastic development process for many of our people across the firm who are involved each year.
