You’ll discover a culture that nurtures individuality and an environment where everyone is supported to reach their potential. With us, you’ll always be moving forward.
What does our outsourcing team do?
Our team is often the first port-of-call for organisations that need business support. We help clients with a wide range of services - anything from bookkeeping and preparing management accounts, to working alongside payroll services and HR teams.
The work we carry out is tailored to the specific needs of the client, so no two days are the same. By carrying out these functions, we help our clients better manage their business. Our work removes obstacles to growth and frees up management’s time, so they concentrate on other priorities such as developing and growing the business.
What can you expect?
RSM’s school leaver apprenticeship in outsourcing offers top quality career development. The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to will help you kick-start your accountancy career. We’ll give you all the experiences and support you need to become a trusted adviser to your clients in the future.
At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. You’ll get involved in client work very quickly, working as part of a team, speaking to clients, developing client relationships, dealing with queries and delivering projects. You’ll access top quality career development opportunities. Alongside hands-on experience, you’ll benefit from on-the-job training from senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role.
When you join this team, you’ll work towards your professional qualifications by completing a 5 year apprenticeship programme. This consists of the AAT qualification for the first two years, followed by the ACA qualification for the remaining three years. For Scottish employees, you will complete the AAT first then the CA qualification with ICAS.
What we look for
Our team specialises in forming strong working relationships with clients, so we’re on the lookout for team players with excellent communication skills. You’ll be juggling multiple projects and working to tight deadlines, so excellent time management is also important.
A curiosity about how businesses work will also help you stand out. And while you don’t have to be a maths genius, you will need to be comfortable with numbers.
If that sounds like you, we know you’ll enjoy being part of our team.
At RSM we work hard to create an environment where our people can make a difference - to themselves, their career, their teams, and to the success of our firm and clients. We support all our people to work flexibly, to manage their family and other responsibilities alongside their work commitments; we believe this is key to achieving an inspiring and fulfilling working environment.

Our Recruitment Process
Please note, for those who perform well throughout our assessment process, should your first preference be unavailable, you could potentially be offered a role in another location or department. This would always be discussed with you in this instance.
RSM will only take one application into consideration per intake. We do not accept multiple applications to different vacancies.
At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important.
You will need:
- 112 UCAS (new tariff) across 3 A Levels or an equivalent level 3 qualification or 104 UCAS (new tariff) across 4 Scottish Highers/Advanced Highers. Please note, RSM does not accept General Studies, AS levels or the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
UCAS changed their points system so under the old tariff it would be 280 or 260 points respectively.
