Our aim is to support you in an environment that will help you achieve your ambitions and allow you to grow and flourish, by providing a training experience that is unrivalled locally.
We offer professionally rewarding careers with an emphasis on continued professional and personal development.
We offer an excellent training package to those that hold (or will achieve) an honours degree (minimum requirement 2:1).
We provide a diverse training experience with early responsibility and client contact, working on varied assignments, both compliance and ad-hoc.
We support you in your journey to becoming a qualified professional over an initial 3 year training contact.
We are proud that some of our best people were EQ graduate trainees, are now fully qualified and continuing their career journey with us – some are even Partners!
Other past graduate trainees, whose career pathways have taken an alternative route, have kept in touch with some even returning as clients.
Not only do we offer an unrivalled training experience, but we are also a very sociable and giving firm, with various social events and fundraisers taking place across the year.
Take a look below at what some of our past graduate trainees have to say about their experience.
We are no longer accepting applications for our our 2020 Chartered Accountancy traineeships.
I love the level of responsibility you are given from day one. Over the years my responsibilities have increased – I now manage my own client portfolio and have progressed from a trainee to Assistant Manager.
Giving graduates client cases from an early stage means relationships can grow and develop. I started working with clients when I first joined and still work with them so I’ve seen their businesses grow and have developed strong working relationships as we’ve grown together.
EQ is a medium sized Firm which does not departmentalise which means I am able to see a job through from start to finish – I find that so much more rewarding. EQ also has a good reputation and prides itself with good ‘on the job’ training.
I was successful with my application to join EQ and was offered a place within their Forfar office. Almost straight away I was provided with a variety of jobs that allowed me to use my university knowledge but was tailored, providing a value added service to the Firm’s clients.
I really enjoyed the number of training opportunities open to you at EQ. Whilst continually learning with on the job training, you were also encouraged to participate in various other internal training programmes. At EQ, my colleagues were always happy to answer any question that arose.
Not only was I given support with my work in the office, but people were also willing to give up their free time to help me with my ICAS studies if there were any areas I needed someone to explain. Having other people who had already been through the process was a great help and I never felt I was struggling on my own.
