Azets targets 500-plusnew recruits for 2023

April 2023

Azets has announced plans to recruit more than 500 apprentices, graduates and school leavers in 2023.

The UK Top 10 accountancy firm currently has 650 apprentices, graduates and school leavers across England, with 331 having joined in August 2022.

Azets is offering another 531 early careers opportunities for September 2023, to take the total to nearly 1,200 by the end of this year.

In 2017, Azets had just 30 apprentices, reflecting the firm’s rapid growth and ongoing investment in talent development over the past six years.

This latest graduate recruitment drive is part of Azets’ recently announced plan to add 900 roles across its UK business over the next 12 months.

The positions cover all levels, from associate through to partner, and service lines including audit and assurance, accounting and advisory business services, corporate finance, tax and restructuring.

David Whitson-Black, Group Head of Talent Development, said: “Our commitment to early careers and creating accessible apprenticeship opportunities is stronger than ever. We have continued to increase apprenticeship opportunities year-on-year, as we continue to invest in people and talent development.

“We are also seeing a huge spike in demand, with a record number of applications for September 2023.

This is not only being driven by young people but a diverse range of ages and people looking for a career change.”
