At Smith & Williamson we recruit high calibre people with the skills, knowledge and commitment to meet the demands of the business.
We are a leading, independently-owned Financial Services firm, combining an Accountancy practice, an Investment Management arm and a private bank.
We are an award-winning Financial Services firm and we achieve this by providing the best possible solutions and service to individuals, corporate bodies, professional practices and non-profit organisations.
We can offer you much more responsibility than you might expect. You’ll be working on real projects and liaising with our clients from the start – it’s our approach to clients that makes this a more fulfilling place to work.
Expect first–class training which will develop the skills you need to become a trusted business adviser.
You will also experience opportunities to study towards funded qualifications or even to take on a secondment overseas.
Right from your first year, you’ll be offered the chance of early responsibility.
You’re actively encouraged to pursue social activities outside of the firm.
Your knowledge increases exponentially and you can gradually become more and more involved.
Smith & Williamson has over 100 years of heritage, with rapid growth over the last ten years seeing our expansion to various locations across the UK.
Our Trainee Programmes can range from direct-entry graduates to higher apprenticeships and internships in any of our offices.
What makes us stand out is our breadth of service: on a day-to-day basis we might look after a client's private wealth and offer personal tax advice, but also offer them other corporate services such as audit, corporate tax or advisory services.
Graduates are an essential part of our future as a company. If you take a look at our current executive board, a number of them joined us as graduates.
Our client base will grow and diversify over time, and grads like you will be integral in growing our relationships with clients and developing our services.
