A group of eight graduates have taken their first steps on the Chartered Accountancy ladder, securing positions with leading taxation and business advisory firm, EQ Accountants LLP.
Each year EQ provide graduate training contracts to graduates who want to train to become a Chartered Accountant, delivering an intensive, diverse three-year training programme across accountancy, taxation, and audit. The firm offer their new recruits a unique training experience with exposure to a broad range of assignments and client responsibility from early on, tailored mentoring to aid their development, as well as continuous support as they work towards their qualifications.
The new trainees come from a range of disciplines, including Accountancy graduates from the University of Dundee, Dioni Gallacher, Emily Page, and Nicholas Watson, alongside Amy Gray from the University of Glasgow. They are joined by Mathematics graduates Catherine Lindsay from the University of Dundee and Stephanie Barrie from the University of St Andrews. In addition, Claudia Splaine, an International Business Management graduate from Robert Gordon University and Rachel Colbeck, a Music graduate from the University of Aberdeen have also joined the firm.
The new graduate intake will be spread across EQ’s offices in Forfar, Dundee and Glenrothes, joining a range of recent recruits across the firm with varying experience, from school and college leavers to qualified staff.
Graeme Davidson, Staff Partner, commented, “We are delighted to welcome our new talented trainees to EQ. We know the importance of investing in our future workforce and have developed our graduate training programme over many years. We’ve refined what we provide, which is unrivalled locally when it comes to the experience, training, support, and funding which our graduates benefit from.
“We offer a supportive, knowledge sharing environment that provides an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the valued services we provide to our clients, allowing our graduates to develop their skills both personally and professionally. We look forward to helping our new intake on their journey to become well rounded, professional Chartered Accountants and the business advisors of the future.”
Whilst EQ welcome their new intake, their graduate opportunities for 2023 will soon be open as their recruitment drive gets underway towards the end of September.
