We have seen a large number of graduates grow from the end of university to completing their CA. (Read more about our CA Program) We are highly experienced in catering to graduates’ needs and training them in all areas needed for development into capable practitioners.
Graduates are provided with regular intensive training sessions covering areas such as Audit, Business Services, Tax, personal development and current topical issues. This involves fortnightly general training, monthly intensive training and specific, in depth tax training every second month. To promote the personal development of our staff, we encourage graduates to contribute to our training program by giving them the opportunity to research and present special interest topics to other staff.
Every graduate has open access to senior staff, including partners and managers, at all times, particularly if they require technical assistance at work or on related studies.
Exposure across the firm
To ensure that you will have the chance to develop all the professional competencies necessary to become a proficient Chartered Accountant, we will try to give you exposure to several of the technical areas in our practice. However, staff who have a desire to specialise in a particular discipline are encouraged in that area. We will endeavour to support you in your career goal to be a Chartered Accountant at Saward Dawson.
Initial assignments will include tasks such as auditing, tax return preparation and client accounting. Supervised client contact will commence almost immediately, giving you the opportunity to improve and expand your interpersonal skills.
