You will develop your career by working directly on projects for our extensive client base and through our dedicated graduate training program.  Our Partner led approach to your career ensures your future as a smart business advisor. 
We have opportunities across Audit, Tax, Advisory and Consulting in our Limerick and Dublin locations.


As auditors, we look to see if our client’s statements about their financial position are true and fair. We review and assess their financial processes and controls and test a sample of underlying transactions. We use the results of our testing as a basis for our opinion on the truth and fairness of the financial statements.
