This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals who would like to start their professional career at a dynamic and relationship-driven firm that is dedicated to helping grow their clients’ businesses through innovative solutions and services.
The placement programme will give you the opportunity to learn about Audit with the long-term aspiration to enable you to decide if this is the field you would like to start a graduate career in. At the end of the programme both you and Menzies LLP will decide on whether a place on the Graduate Programme is going to happen.

Ongoing training & development is provided throughout your Menzies career as we are passionate about our people and ensuring they are continuously gaining new skills and expertise.
What do we look for?
We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic individuals who enjoy a challenge and we welcome applicants who are on course to achieve a minimum of a 2:2 undergraduate degree in any discipline.

If that sounds like you then you could be a great fit at Menzies.
