RSM welcomes record number of new trainees

RSM has announced the appointment of a record 350 trainees across all locations in the UK – expanding the total headcount of the firm by 10%.

The group of trainees, including graduates and school leavers, will be working within its tax, audit, corporate finance, risk, restructuring, financial reporting and consulting teams across the firm.

The new recruits will start their RSM careers on an intensive training course and will also commence study towards their professional ACA, AAT, ATT, ICAS, ACCA, CIA or CTA qualifications.

David Gwilliam, RSM’s chief operating officer, said: ‘The record number of trainees supports our commitment to attracting, developing and retaining talent across all areas of the business. The level of appointments reflects recent growth in our businesses, and equates to a 10 per cent increase in headcount across the firm – which is a significant milestone.’

‘It’s great to welcome all 350 to RSM and I am sure all our new trainees will make a significant contribution to further strengthening our service offering to our clients.’

RSM offers trainees a range of career opportunities from technical development and overseas secondments to participation in key CR activity, including taking on the Duke of Edinburgh Gold award. This approach to career development was singled out in this year’s Top 100 Employers for School and College Leavers 2016-17.
