Our tax school leaver programme 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 powerful combination of on-the-job learning and structured training – not to mention an impressive client list to work with.

When you join our team, 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 can you expect?

The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to will help you kick-start your career. With our support, you’ll become a true trusted adviser to your clients in the future.

At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. You’ll get involved in client work very quickly, initially working as part of a larger team before taking on individual responsibility for projects.

A career in tax will give you access to top quality career development. Alongside hands-on experience, you’ll benefit from on-the-job training from more senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role.

With us, you’ll have the opportunity to work towards the ATT qualifications. We help our trainees choose the most appropriate path. The key for us is to allow our people to be the best they can be regardless of the route.

What we look for

We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are always up for a challenge. Tax is a technical demanding discipline, so we look for school leavers who are quick to grasp new subjects. It’s important you also have confidence with numbers and great attention to detail.

You’ll often need to explain complex financial information, so you’ll need excellent written and verbal communication skills. What separates us from our competitors is the financial acumen we demonstrate and we expect that right from the start from our people.

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:

  • a minimum of 5 GCSEs grade C or above or 5 National 4/5 Qualifications (or equivalent), including Maths and English language;
  • 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.
