International tax, accountancy and advisory firm Mazars has welcomed an intake of more than 170 trainees.
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 including the firm’s East Midlands offices.
Trainees began their journey with Mazars last week at the firm’s 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.
Chris Darlington, partner at Mazars in Leicester, said: “I am delighted to welcome our 2016 intake. We really value our trainees and want their time with us to count. 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”.
Mazars was recently recognised as an outstanding employer for trainees, being ranked 2nd in the list of best accounting and professional services firm for school and college leavers.
