Our specialisms include Agriculture, Engineering and Manufacturing, Healthcare, Leisure, Professions, Property and Construction, Technology and Charities. 

We have offices in Dundee, Forfar and Glenrothes, and our teams are committed to utilising their financial and business expertise to inspire, support and encourage clients to realise their ambitions. 

We have been supporting our clients since the early 1990s, but there has never been a more interesting or important time to come onboard. 

Joining the EQ team at this juncture is an exciting opportunity propelled by the recent investment from Sumer Group. With an ambitious plan to triple turnover within the next five years, EQ stands as a frontrunner in Scotland’s accountancy sector. 

Bolstered by Sumer’s backing, EQ gains access to a vast network of over 1,000 colleagues across 40 offices while retaining the localised expertise of its core team. 

Led by a dynamic leadership team and fuelled by strategic acquisitions, EQ is poised for growth. As part of this journey, EQ fosters a culture of development and empowerment, exemplified by employee-focused initiatives. 

If you are looking for a firm that inspires development, encourages progression, and will allow you to fulfil your potential while being part of a transformative endeavour reshaping the landscape of UK accountancy, there is a rewarding career waiting for you at EQ.  


Our Intern opportunities 

Suitable for third year University students, we have vacancies for placements in our Dundee and Forfar offices for up to 6 weeks over the summer months.  

We provide an invaluable experience through exposure to a wide variety of assignments allowing you the opportunity to experience first-hand what it is like to work for a progressive accountancy practice.  

We don’t departmentalise, which means you will get an all-round experience of accounts, tax, and audit – as well and an understanding of how to start to become a great business adviser.  

Throughout your placement, we provide one to one mentoring and support.  

We are currently seeking applications for our Summer 2024 internship programme, with several vacancies across the Firm.  We appreciate how valuable real-world experience can be and as such, we place as much emphasis on recruiting students for internships as we do when recruiting our graduates.
