Six new graduates start their accountancy career journey with EQ

Tuesday, 24 August 2021

A group of six graduates have taken up trainee positions at leading accountancy, tax and business advisory firm, EQ Accountants LLP.

Each year, the firm provide graduate training contracts to local graduates who want to train to become a Chartered Accountant. EQ delivers an intensive, three-year training programme which is unrivalled locally when it comes to the experience, training and funding which graduates benefit from.

The six new trainees will be based across the firm’s offices in Dundee, Forfar and Glenrothes. Coming from a range of different disciplines, EQ will welcome accountancy and finance graduates Chloe Hunter, Sam O’Connor and Ross Dallas from the University of Dundee and Christopher Dewar from Edinburgh Napier University. They will be joined by Law graduates, Megan Bertie from Abertay University and Lynsey Robertson from Edinburgh University.

The new trainees will receive a diverse training experience, developing skills in accountancy, taxation and audit and will be exposed to a broad range of assignments, with client responsibility from early on. The programme also offers the opportunity to enhance their personal skills and gain valuable insight into the firm’s business advisory services.

David Cameron, Managing Partner, commented, “We believe it’s important to invest in our future workforce as it’s crucial we have the right people in place to be able to deliver on the growing demand for our valued services.

“We are delighted to welcome this talented group of young individuals who will continue to strengthen our existing workforce and look forward to providing a truly rounded experience so they can thrive within the firm, both personally and professionally. We all look forward to helping shape them into the professional Chartered Accountants who we are proud of, and who are proud of themselves.”

Whilst EQ welcome their new trainees, their graduate opportunities for 2022 will soon be open as their recruitment drive gets underway towards the end of September.
