Careers at RSM (Accountancy)
I wanted to let you know about an event that is happening at the RSM office in Liverpool. It is aimed at graduates and school leavers (parents welcome too) to find out a bit more about RSM and the opportunities they offer for graduates and school leavers. There will be networking over drinks and nibbles with some of their current trainees as well as Managers and Directors etc. Students will be able to ask questions about life at RSM and what it is like to work for them and study towards a professional accountancy qualification. They will also have a few short presentations covering the recruitment process and current opportunities, studying and exams, and a current students own experience.

Date: Wednesday 4th December
Time: 5pm – 6.30pm
Address: 14th Floor, 20 Chapel Street, Liverpool, L3 9AG
