Banking and Capital Markets (B&CM) Audit is our market leading banking audit practice, with an extensive portfolio of flagship clients ranging from global banks to brokers, challenger banks and FinTechs. Joining our team will give you the opportunity to deliver audit services on both large and smaller audits and across a broad range of client roles that align to your interests or give you a new challenge. You'll be given the opportunity to help many of these clients enhance or transform existing operations and uphold the highest levels of audit quality.

Undergraduate work placement

These eleven-month placements are for students who need to complete a placement as part of their degree. You could sit a selection of professional accounting exams and leave with a graduate job offer to fast track into a second year role upon graduation.

You'll also have the opportunity to study towards the Chartered Accountant (ACA or CA) qualification while on placement.

What you'll need

You'll need to be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject. We determine whether you're on course for a 2.1 based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study
You'll need to be a second year undergraduate university student on a four-year degree expecting to do a work placement in your third year

When to apply

Although there is no application deadline, each year we have only a small number of Graduate roles available. We therefore advise applying early, but please be prepared for a short wait in processing your application at each stage of our process while we consider your application alongside others.
