Accountancy and Finance
Our epic projects generate some big numbers. And with circa £4.8bn revenue in 2016 and an order book pipeline of over £30bn, our numbers need just as much expertise as our projects. Over the course of three years, you’ll move between different parts of our business to get an incredible overview of finance.
WHERE YOU CAN JOIN US
You can find out more about the areas of our business offering places on the Accountancy and Finance programme for autumn 2017 on our website. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
You’ll gain the broadest exposure to company-based accounting and financial management – including management accounting (with both overhead and project experience) and business tax accounting. You’ll work on projects across many different sectors which will give you the kind of experiences and insights that are very hard to come by.
And every step of the way you will be mentored towards chartered management accountant status. We’ll support you to gain Associate of Chartered Management Accountants (ACMA) status, offered by CIMA. You’ll learn either through a tuition provider or via distance learning (we use BPP and Kaplan).
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
In a phrase: Chartered Management Accountant status. We’ll pay for you to get your stripes with CIMA, and assign you a mentor to help you get there – with a competitive starting salary of £27,000 - £30,000. In return, we expect you to attain Chartership.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You’ll need a 2:2 (Hons) degree in Accountancy and Finance, Economics, Science or Engineering, with a good A-Level in Maths and 280 UCAS points (excluding General Studies). You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
Applications for this programme are currently open. To avoid disappointment we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later as we work on a rolling basis and where we experience large volumes of applications, we will close the role early.
