Mazars; a global audit, accounting and consulting firm employing more than 40,000 professionals in 90 countries worldwide. With over £1.5billion in revenue last year they are amongst the top 10 largest professional services firms in the world.
Looking for some work experience, want a graduate job or an apprenticeship then look no further! They have 16 offices all over the UK and offer some of the very best student opportunities, so no matter where you are based, there will be a Mazars office not too far away!
We are hosting a special Introduction to Mazars Evening Event on Monday 18th October from 5:00pm – 6:00pm to give you an insight into the firm and their excellent and varied student programmes.
They will be bringing some of their senior audit and advisory professionals to guide us through an open interactive session designed to give you a hands on practical experience on what it’s like to work in the profession. We will be sending out some pre materials and literature prior to this event so you can prepare in advance!

“Where can I find actionable advice on aptitude tests that gets results?”, you’ve in the right place.
PracticeReasoningTests is where future professionals turn for proven success strategies.
My effective advice on aptitude tests is why candidates for employers like PwC, KPMG & Deutsche Bank subscribe to my email newsletter and read my blog.
And my results-focused approach to improving your results is likely why a newly hired accountant at Deloitte recently said: “Ed is a really smart psychometric test coach who knows what he’s talking about because he lives it every day.”
I wanted to remind you that our Virtual Work Experience programmes, running from the 2nd to the 13th of August, are now open for applications. These August programmes will really give students the chance to take control of their future this summer, ensuring that they come back more prepared than ever.
There are over 20 programmes which are completely free for students (and always will be). They include everything from politics and journalism, to sustainability and engineering and can be completed at times that suit your students. Most notably, they offer a certificate great for CVs, cover letters and future interviews upon completion.
You can view all of our August programmes, open to applications from students aged 14 – 19 below:
