Graduate Trainees 

Graduate trainees at Consilium Chartered Accountants are more than just a small cog in a big machine. You will work with successful businesses from day one of your training and gain hands-on accountancy experience as you study to become a Chartered or Certified Accountant.

Consilium’s graduate programme differs from traditional accountancy training schemes by offering exposure to a broad base of professional services and a diverse portfolio of clients. We focus on getting to know you and investing in your professional career. Exam-relevant experience across a range of business sectors and industries gives trainees a full sense of the career options available to them, before completing their professional exams with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) or the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

Our Graduate recruitment process runs from September to October each year, with successful candidates starting their training in the following August.

To date, every member of our team who has completed their professional studies has been offered a post-qualification position with Consilium. This is a testament to the quality of our graduates and the supportive training environment we provide.
