The new joiners, from school leavers to graduates and those on industrial placements, will be working across a range of service lines including audit, tax, outsourcing, financial planning, consulting, forensic and investigation services, employee benefits and actuarial. Trainees will be joining teams in almost every office, with the majority based in London, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Sutton and Leeds.
Trainees began their journey with Mazars last week at the firms’ annual “Ignite” welcome conference, and will receive intensive training as they begin their studies towards their professional qualifications, including AAT, ACA, ACCA, ATT, CFAB, CII, ICAS, AFA and IIA. Trainees enjoy working with a diverse mix of clients at Mazars and have a range of career opportunities, including international secondments.

We offer a range of career opportunities including international assignments and the chance to work with a truly diverse mix of clients. Delivering outstanding quality to our clients is at the heart of everything we do and our people are key to making this happen. I am sure that our new trainees will be valuable assets to the teams they are joining and to the clients they will be working with.”
