Great – now, we’ve got your attention! Not many students know about careers in accounting or what accountancy apprenticeship or graduates roles are on offer. All you perhaps think about is that it involves Maths and numbers. Don’t let the numbers put you off, come along and gain a better understanding at our Insight-into-Accountancy 

During this session you will have the chance to hear from our current apprentices/graduates and learn about the different areas you could

work in  – Audit, Accounts, Tax, Forensic Accounting, Payroll, Corporate Finance. They will share their inspiring stories, what motivated them to go into accounting and how they are making a difference in their workplace.

This session will give you an opportunity to hear from a range of employees from Azets and we will have practical tasks to help you understand the industry.
