What we look for

Our programme is open to all school leavers regardless of what you previously studied and we can also consider graduates and career changers if they do not meet the requirements of the ACA programme. You do not need to have had any specific work experience in order to apply.

Our people possess an enthusiasm for working in collaboration with their colleagues, supported closely by partners and managers. Our key focus is to provide excellent client service, meaning a ‘can do’ attitude is vital.

The key skills that we look for and will assess through our recruitment process are:

Building relationships
In every aspect of the role, you will need to collaborate with others in order to get the job done. You will also need to be confident dealing with clients in a friendly and professional manner.

Creativity and innovation
We’re looking for candidates who are keen to get to grips with a range of different challenges and bring a fresh perspective. You should enjoy learning new systems and technologies and not be afraid to suggest new ways of doing things.

Initiative and drive
You’ll need to be able to make decisions, solve problems and see a task through to completion. You’ll also need to be ambitious for your own development, setting yourself high standards and striving to excel.

Flexibility and adaptability
During the programme, you will experience a variety of projects of differing durations. You’ll need to be adaptable as you work with different teams and different clients. You’ll need to pay close attention to detail but also be able to think about the bigger picture.

Presenting and communicating
We recognise the value of hearing diverse views, one of which will be yours. You’ll be analysing information, and writing and presenting to various audiences in a clear, concise and persuasive way.

Commercial awareness
In order to best support our clients you need to understand their business. We are looking for candidates who take an interest in how industries and businesses work. Who keep abreast of current affairs and think about how they might impact the clients we work with and the services they need.
