Summer Internship

Job description

Our summer intern program is slightly different from others; we want to give our interns a broader experience by working across three of our service lines; accounting and sutsourcing, audit and tax. With the assistance of a designated mentor, you will be involved in carrying out the day to day role of a typical first year student for each of the service lines in a supportive environment. The program is designed to be enjoyable but challenging.

During the program, you will be supporting a senior member of staff and your typical daily duties could include:

  • Assisting with tax compliance work
  • Basic bookkeeping
  • Use of audit, tax and cloud accounting software
  • Attend client meetings
  • Ensure sound knowledge of a client and its industry by researching background information and useful publications
  • Attend in-house technical training as required
  • Develop and apply technical knowledge gained from studies and on the job experience
  • Gain an awareness of the various services provided by Mazars
  • Develop communication skills and build relationships

Following the program, if a career in accountancy is something which you wish to pursue, you will be invited to apply for one of the firm’s graduate positions which would commence the following summer.
