From day one you will be supported by an experienced and committed team who will guide and mentor your development while making you feel valued. In fact, we are proud to say that one of our people won the Young Accountant of the Year Award in the 2016 Australian Accounting Awards.

Our Program:

The Fordham Graduate Program is an essential component in building our pipeline of talent and will support you to grow your skills to deliver exceptional outcomes in an environment of high performance and integrity. You will be provided with career development and the support you need every step of the way.

As an Accountant in our business you will be exposed to a variety of work and involved in our client’s business journey from start to finish. You will experience our business services environment and help to achieve meaningful results for our clients.

We have opportunities in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.

About You:

We’re looking for inspiring and motivated Graduates who have the drive to succeed. We want people who love coming to work each day, not because they have to, but because they want to. You should be passionate about a career in accounting and about being a trusted advisor to our clients.

 You enjoy solving problems, aim to keep learning throughout your career and have both drive and empathy.  To compete in the world we live in we want graduates who are adaptable and have both high IQ and high EQ, who enjoy hitting high targets and setting the next ones even higher.

As long as you’re smart, driven and a people person you can be anyone – we want diversity of backgrounds, attitudes, talents and thinking to help us meet the challenges of tomorrow (even before we know what they will be).

To get into our list of candidates you’ll need to show us a credit average GPA (or above), and tell us how you’ve excelled in (and learned from) extra-curricular activities, part-time jobs, summer internships or work experience. In your application we’d love to hear about what unique skills, ideas and experience you can bring to the team.

Our Graduates are organised, have excellent communication skills and the ability to see the bigger picture.

Your Development:

In the Fordham Graduate Program, your development is important to us. 

Your journey with Fordham begins through your recruitment process where we build a strong insight of your respective strengths and potential areas for development. We subsequently use this information to build a blended learning approach that includes customised face-to-face workshops, online learning, and access to leaders. Your development program is designed to set you up for future success and high performance in our organisation.

In designing your learning journey, we take consideration to the skills you need to perform at the appropriate stage in your graduate program. For example, on joining Fordham our focus will be helping you transition into the workplace and start to build your technical skills . As you progress through the program we may cover areas including understanding your-self and performing in diverse teams, influencing others, building resilience and developing leadership capability. This compliments any formal technical training that you may complete as part of your specific role.

Your tailored learning journey will allow you to network and build strong relationships, not only with your own graduate cohort but with key stakeholders in our business. 

As a Graduate, you will have exposure to different clients where you will gain a depth of experience in our organisation, access to leaders in our business, and a structured support community of buddies and mentors.

Fordham will also support you through the Chartered Accountants Program with training, workshops and study leave, plus we reward you on completion of the program with a $5,000 salary increase!
