Preparing for the SWAT graduate careers fair

Here in the HR department we are getting ready for the SWAT Chartered Accountancy recruitment fair at SWAT UK in London on the 1st February.  Peter Ellis our student counsellor will be there and we’re excited about meeting graduates and students to hopefully help them with some of their career choices. 

If you’re going to a graduate recruitment fair, my advice would be to talk to as many people as possible, ask lots of questions and try to get a feel for the work you might be expected to do.  It’s really important that you are happy and fulfilled in your career so it’s important to find out whether a firm is a good fit for you. 

As a mid-tier firm we offer our trainees a really good balance of interesting and varied client work alongside regular contact with senior managers and partners in a friendly, informal environment.  Our graduate trainees are all unique but they do have some skills in common, they are all motivated, responsible people who work well as part of a team delivering excellent service to our clients.  If that sounds like it could be you, make sure to stop by the Shipleys stand to have a chat, find out some more and help yourself to some chocolate!

See you there ……
