People who strive for quality, who have the energy for excellence – but who are also fully-rounded individuals with passions and interests beyond their career. These multi-faceted people would find training contracts at larger firms restrictive and prohibitive – but they flourish in our kind of culture.
We look for young trainees with ‘something else’ in their lives – be it sport, cultural activities or family – and find this always brings an added depth and dimension to our team.
Young accountants of the future will be happy to hear that Keogh Ryan Tierney is on an accelerated growth path gaining new large audit clients of substance in the region. Happily, this creates opportunities for trainees to secure quality and varied experiences with us – as well as for promotion within the firm.
"Each year we recruit for our
Audit Department and Tax Department"
Each year we recruit for our Audit Department and Tax Department, depending on our requirements, beginning the process of graduate recruitment in the October of each year.
We are a Chartered firm and therefore graduates joining our Audit Department generally train as Chartered Accountants following the program set out by Chartered Accountants Ireland.
Our policy, as recommended by Chartered Accounts Ireland ensures that every CA trainee gains work experience under a training contract for a fixed period of time which covers study leave over and above CAI guidelines and we cover payment for exam and course fees.
"We value our trainees and realise
they make a huge contribution"
We value our trainees and realise that they make a huge contribution to the firm. That’s why we make sure they gain experience that’s broad and deep during their time with us – and are paid market rate for their contribution.
As a trainee, you’ll work within a structured environment and under the supervision of the firm. This will help you develop the professional values, technical/functional competencies and the personal and interpersonal attributes that make for a successful Chartered Accountant.
Ours is a learning, nurturing and supportive environment. No questions are ‘stupid’ and no chance to learn is denied. We encourage all of our trainees to ask questions while our more senior staff enjoy training and mentoring our junior team members.
From an auditing point of view, we encourage trainees to spend as much time as possible working at a client’s premises. We believe this makes for an efficient and robust audit process – while also introducing trainees to different systems of accounting and controls.
If you’re ready to develop your career in audit or taxation at a dynamic, cutting-edge practice with a different way of thinking, we’d like to talk.
