Overview

One of the Big Four accounting firms, and so covering audit, tax, consulting and financial advice. A superb place to start a career. The apprenticeships on offer cover the full range of their business, but not all the target qualifications are actual degrees - many are e.g. the ACA chartered accountancy qualification, which ranks as a degree in many employers' eyes but is not one. Ask how easy it is to join one specialism, find you prefer another, and then move over.

GCG view

We had a back-breaking time trying to dig on this website. There appear to be 3 degrees on offer but they're all based in Belfast, maybe if you try playing the "Firefly Freedom" game you'll discover more but we had a vertiginous pile of other companies to be investigated, so sadly we couldn't play. The email address looks hopeful but produced only generic replies when we tried and tried again. Finally, a spokesman told us that they had not yet agreed to be part of this programme but would be in touch later, I'm afraid we are somewhat mystified by this one.

  • AIRBUS

    The aeroplane builder: top flight engineering with an emphasis on everything being done perfectly (for which we have often been thankful) and therefore on hands-on skills - graduate recruits get sent to the local FE college for a year before they are allowed near the factory floor. A good employer by all accounts.

  • ACCENTURE

    Accenture is a top-line business consulting company; this apprenticeship is in their IT consulting division, and the embedded degree is a solidly technical one. You will very rapidly be part of building real IT applications; expect to be living out of a suitcase near whichever client you are working for. If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.

  • ARCADIS

    "Design and consultancy for natural and built assets", they say: a top-end global construction company based in Holland but with strong UK roots. This is an apprenticeship that leads to becoming a Chartered Building Surveyor - the top professional qualification with MRICS after your name, and a core role in a business like Arcadis. Long term prospects: the UK CEO is a FRICS; say no more.
