Accounting and Business Advisory Assistant

Accounting and business advisory – get the career you want at RSM

Our accounting and business advisory apprenticeship will give you all the skills and support you need to unlock a future that’s packed with opportunities and new experiences. You’ll enjoy a fast-tracked business career that recognises your potential and rewards your ambition. When you join our team, you’ll enjoy a powerful combination of on-the-job learning and structured training – not to mention an impressive client list to work with. You’ll discover a culture that nurtures individuality and an environment where everyone is supported to reach their potential. With us, you’ll always be moving forward.

What does our accounting and business advisory team do?

Our team makes sure companies’ financial statements comply with government regulations and industry standards. We also advise on business strategies, provide companies with financial forecasts and prepare management accounts that show an accurate picture of business performance. Our work helps put a set of figures into perspective. We help our clients understand what the management accounts actually say about the state of their business. We help them identify key areas where they could improve performance. We also provide daily advice to clients across a wide range of industry sectors. Many do not have in-house advisers who can help them deal with day-to-day issues, so our team is often the first port of call when they have financial or business-related questions.

What can you expect?

A career in accounting and business advisory offers top quality career development. With us, you’ll get involved in client work very quickly, and get the chance to learn about different types of businesses from varying industry sectors. The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to early on will help you jump-start your accountancy career. Initially, you’ll be working as part of a larger team. Once you’ve completed your initial professional qualifications, the complexity of your workload will increase and you’ll have the opportunity to take on more individual responsibilities and get involved in more challenging accounting issues, such as applying international accounting standards. With us, you’ll have the space to grow and be challenged. With our support, you’ll become a true trusted adviser to your clients. When you join this team, you’ll work towards your AAT professional qualifications.

What we look for

We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are quick to learn and always up for a challenge. You’ll be working on a wide variety of projects, so it’s important that you’re adaptable and highly organised. Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as you’ll be communicating at all levels, often explaining complex information both in meetings and in written reports. We also look for team players who enjoy interacting with others and are curious about how businesses work. If that sounds like you, we know you’ll enjoy being part of our team.

Entry requirements

At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important.

You will need:

  • 112 UCAS (new tariff) across 3 A Levels or 104 (new tariff) across 4 Highers/Advanced Highers.
  • UCAS changed their points system so under the old tariff it would be 280 or 260 points respectively.
