Placements and work experience

Placements for university students

Summer placements will give you a valuable insight into what it’s like to work with us and an idea of how much accountancy careers have to offer.

As an undergraduate you can apply to join us for six weeks and you’ll get to work in teams such as Audit, Business Services or Tax. These are hands-on, varied and paid learning experiences.
The perfect time to apply is your penultimate year at university. You can work alongside a supportive and friendly team of experienced colleagues to find out if an accountancy career is for you. You’ll be set a research topic and asked to prepare a short presentation about it. You’ll interview people across the firm, improving your knowledge, research and networking skills. If you’re considering embarking on an ACA accountancy apprenticeship after university then this is a great way to take one for a test drive!

Work experience for A level and BTEC students

Work experience for A level and BTEC students is available in most of our offices.

You can join us for a week in our Business Services team to get involved with preparing year-end accounts, management accounts, forecasts and projections, as well as handling tax issues and VAT returns.

We have offered all our work experience placements for summer 2024. Please keep an eye on our jobs pages or sign up for job alerts to be the first to hear when new placement opportunities are available.

To apply, just submit a CV and covering letter explaining why you are interested in completing an accounting placement with PKF Francis Clark.
