About Consilium – Every number tells a story
Accountants understand numbers, but not every accountant takes the time to understand the stories these numbers tell. Here at Consilium, we take that time to listen and make sure the numbers tell the best possible story for our clients’ businesses.
Consilium Chartered Accountants was established by partners who identified the opportunity to develop an independent Scottish accounting firm focusing on meeting the needs of Scottish businesses. We are passionate about what we do and excited about the future opportunities available to us, our staff and our clients. Our clients are all owner managed businesses and the owners themselves. We have experienced professionals with expertise in a range of specialist areas including audit, tax compliance and advisory, business services and corporate finance. We work as a team, understanding our clients’ needs and providing a service tailored to each client’s requirements.
We have a simple vision – to help our clients and our team achieve success. Through the provision of our client focused solutions we build long term relationships to enable us to support SME business leaders in reaching their goals. To enable our team to do this we will provide a challenging and supportive environment in which they can excel.
We are very proud of our culture and want to continue to work with staff at all levels that appreciate and understand our core values. We aim for all of our partners and staff to exhibit these values:
- Be Consilium - We plan, we advise, we counsel, we exercise our judgement and share our wisdom.
- Do what’s right - We act with honesty and openness and take responsibility for our actions. If we make a mistake, we fix it.
- Do it together – We are inclusive. We treat each other well. We respect, trust and support each other, and we celebrate together. We encourage, we challenge, we teach. We do all of this so that we can fulfil our potential and succeed together.
We seek enthusiastic and hardworking individuals to join us as CA trainees. We currently have vacancies for traineeships within our audit and tax teams.
These roles would suit candidates at the start or in the early stages of their accountancy career. They will provide the essential skills and the varied experience required as candidates embark on a career in accountancy and tax. Our students will work with clients from a broad spectrum of industries from across Scotland.
We provide hands-on experience for graduates working towards their professional qualifications – including CA. We encourage our students to take ownership of their work, enabling them to flourish in a flexible, supportive structure. We will provide experience across the key areas of audit, accounting, corporate and personal tax which will form a solid basis for graduates as they embark on a career in accountancy and tax.
You should be willing to be challenged and have the following skills:
• Attention to detail;
• Team work;
• Organisational skills;
• Communication skills; and
• Numeracy skills.
No previous accountancy experience is required, although it is desirable.
We are looking for graduates with a minimum 2:1 degree with higher Maths and English (or equivalent) or AAT qualified students.
