Armstrong Watson Work Experience

Work Experience placements are being offered across their Carlisle, Leeds and Newcastle offices between June – July 2024. Those who are successful will be offered the opportunity to gain one week of Work Experience across a variety of our service lines.

This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who are currently studying at school / college and are looking to gain some hands-on Work Experience within the Accounting industry. You will have the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals and gain valuable insights into what it is like to work within a professional services firm. You will spend time within a variety of different service lines throughout the week, therefore no two days will be the same.

The service lines that you may spend some time in are as follows:

  • Accounting
  • Audit & Assurance
  • Corporate Finance
  • Financial Planning
  • Forensic Accounting
  • Tax Consultancy
  • Restructuring & Insolvency
  • Payroll

As well as the above, we also have an opportunity available within our Carlisle office for those who are interested in gaining Work Experience within the internal Technology team. If this is something that you are interested in, please can you ensure that you select this as a preference within your application.

At the end of your Work Experience, you will receive feedback and guidance to help you develop your skills and knowledge going forward. For those who are still interested in pursuing a career within Accountancy after their Work Experience, we will offer advice on the different pathways to achieving these goals.
