Graduate opportunities

By choosing to start your career at Scott-Moncrieff you will have the opportunity to work with either public sector organisations or commercial businesses.

Commercial & Public Sector Audit

We have positions available within our commercial and public sector audit teams based across our Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness offices. Your time will be mainly spent on-site with clients, learning more about their businesses and understanding their unique challenges. You may also have the opportunity to complete secondments within our business advisory and taxation teams too. All staff participate in an annual training programme for each stage of their career and you will receive full exam and study support from the training team and qualified managers.

Working for the Public Sector Team

Jaded at the thought of working on the same client all year round? Uninterested in doing the same work over and over? Then you should consider joining the Public Sector team within Scott-Moncrieff.

Working on both external and internal audits with a diverse range of clients across multiple sectors, our team can promise you a training experience that provides variety and a diverse skillset.

Working on internal audits, you'll visit clients to assess their control arrangements in a range of areas, from how they maintain their relationship with the Government, to how they deliver high profile events such as the Ryder Cup. If you're ready for it, you can gain responsibility for undertaking your own reviews within the first six months, draft your own reports, and meet with Chief Executives and Directors to discuss your findings.

Working on external audits, you'll gain an understanding of how a variety of public sectors operate financially and operationally, including the NHS, Central Government bodies and local authorities. Together with your audit team, you'll analyse the various aspects of a client's annual accounts and may even get to travel to some of Scotland's prettier places, such as the Orkney Islands.

Every step of the way, you'll be provided with support from your fellow auditors and targeted training twice a year to make sure your knowledge and skills are up-to-scratch. There's also opportunities for quick internal progression if you're hard-working and ambitious. Working with the public sector may not be something you've considered before now, but in career development terms, it's definitely worth it!
