Saward Dawson is a dynamic chartered accountancy firm with a strong team culture that exists to service the needs of others. We do this by employing great people who share a similar ethos and aspire to deliver excellence. This enables our team of 70 plus staff to deliver services in the areas of audit & assurance, business advisory, financial planning, personal taxation and superannuation, as well as business, taxation and not-for-profit consulting.
A cadetship with Saward Dawson enables VCE graduates or students who have commenced study the opportunity to combine paid employment in the accounting profession with their tertiary accounting studies. Cadets are often able to excel in their studies through the provision of challenging and varied work experiences within a flexible working environment.
Cadets are trained in many areas of our practice. Assignments include tax return preparation, client bookkeeping and auditing. Extensive use of the many different Information Technology packages is a routine part of life at Saward Dawson. The ability to learn whilst in the work environment should accelerate your progress in tertiary studies and will make them more relevant.
We expect the following of our cadets:
- Cadets will dedicate sufficient efforts to their studies to ensure they obtain a high standard of academic achievement.
- Cadets will work a minimum of three days per week (approximately 24 hours). This may be increased to full time during university holidays and other times when available.
- Cadets will continue to seek to develop personally through their involvement with other activities outside their work and study commitments.
- Cadets will quickly progress to a level of junior accountants and beyond as they are provided with work experience and as they develop academically.
Applications close on Thursday 15 October 2020.
