Audit Trainee

Mazars currently have opportunities for final year students, graduates or postgraduates to train as a Chartered Accountants starting in October 2017.

We are looking for trainees to join our Audit & Assurance team to begin a 3 or 3½ year training contract with the firm and Chartered Accountants Ireland (ACA) or the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Successful candidates will be put through a rigorous training and development programme as well as sitting professional exams throughout the course of their contract. Trainees will be based in our Dublin Audit & Assurance department, with opportunities to gain exposure to other service areas, offering future career progression opportunities.


Lifecycle of an Audit Trainee:

Trainees who choose to work in Audit will specifically work in Audit, Assurance, and Accountancy. The beginning of your training contract will equip you with the technical skills and knowledge in order to become an excellent professional in your field. You will assist other trainees and seniors and managers on audits and become familiar with a large spectrum of clients. As you progress you will gradually gain more responsibility for elements of each assignment and begin to play a more central role. This will eventually lead you to managing projects and taking a lead role when liaising with clients as well as supporting new trainees during their contract period.


The Ideal Candidate:

We are looking for high achievers with an honours degree. We will accept applications from a range of different backgrounds and are looking for smart, interesting people who will enjoy working with us. While your academic background is of course relevant - you may have a degree in engineering, business, law, IT, science or economics - what's important is that you bring to the firm a willingness to learn and apply your skills in the best way possible. We can teach you the technical and business skills you require, but you also need energy and the right attitude to succeed.
