ACCA Platinum Employer

100 years in business

High calibre clients

We offer our trainees a supportive and collaborative working environment in which you can learn, gain experience and progress.

A solid foundation to your career

Every year, a number of school leaver, graduate and post-graduate placements are available at Rouse. But however you join us, we will train you.

As an authorised training employer, we offer ACA qualification programmes and we are also an ACCA Platinum approved employer for trainee development and professional development. These accreditations recognise us as a provider of quality training and development, and offering the highest levels of employee support.

Whilst you’re working towards your professional qualification you have the benefit of being able to turn to colleagues who have been through it themselves. This means that they can share their experiences, offer guidance, or just be available a friendly chat whenever you need it, as you progress each level.

We will fully support you throughout your training, with access to:

  • Quarterly meetings with our training provider and skills coaches to monitor progress and support you
  • Six-monthly progress reviews with your line manager / mentor
  • Guidance with the scheduling of examinations and payment of exam fees
