About the programme

And it’s up to us to collaborate with clients as they navigate this next phase in the digital era. It’s a global challenge – one that you’ll enjoy solving as a member of our team.

  • Building and maintaining relationships with clients – consulting with them as they work to pay the correct amount of tax for their businesses.
  • Contributing to society by reviewing tax that will be spent developing communities, driving sustainability and defending our nation.
  • Working as part of a project team, delivering results for large organisations such as retailers, pharmaceutical companies, banks, insurers, healthcare and beyond.
  • Developing your professional skillset in a friendly, open, inclusive, innovative and hard-working environment.
