You can expect to be part of highly engaged, supportive teams working together to deliver high quality outputs in line with client expectations and deadlines.

What support will be provided to graduates?

On your start date, you will be paired up with a buddy, someone in your team whose role it will be to help you settle in, introduce you to everyone and help with any queries. They will be your buddy on an ongoing basis, so you will always have a go-to person close by. As a graduate, you are automatically part of a cohort of peers, other graduates starting at the same time or throughout the year and there will be lots of opportunity to network and socialise with them.

We also provide you with a mentor, someone with more experience from outside of your team who has previously been in a similar role to you, and likely to have shared similar experiences, so well equipped to offer advice on any problems you are facing or queries, no matter how big or small. Their role will be to help build your skills, empower you to progress successfully and aim to make you comfortable to share your thoughts and express how you feel.

Your line manager will be responsible for your overall progression. They will meet with you regularly to provide you with feedback and be available to answer any questions you may have.

Is there a rotation program?

We recognise that our graduates want to achieve a good level of capability and progress in their chosen career path as quickly as possible, so currently we do not offer a mandatory rotation program. At the same time, we want to give our graduates the opportunity and freedom to grow, move around and experiment with a different career path if they choose. We are open to exploring opportunities to transfer our graduates to other teams on a temporary or permanent basis as and when the need arises.


Does your office offer flexible working? 

We recognise the importance of an agile and flexible workforce and support our people with flexible working practices. We have adjusted to a new way of working and our people can collaborate, share and connect on a professional and social level regardless of their working arrangements.

How did your firm respond to the pandemic?

The safety and wellbeing of our employees is our upmost priority, and our offices were closed to all unless there were exceptional circumstances. With the IT and technical infrastructure already in place, our workforce were able to easily transition from office to home working. At a team level, our people spoke with each other daily on video calls to maintain contact and visibility. At a firm level, our offices collaborated for weekly exercise sessions and national games for a positive distraction. Everyone had access to mental wellbeing support via our employee assistance provider, Converge International. When our respective state governments lifted restrictions, a return to the office was centrally managed in each office to ensure a safe return to the workplace.

What sets Mazars apart from other firms?

We are a multicultural, integrated and united partnership, with shared goals, values and services across the world. Everyone is made to feel they have a purpose where you can actively contribute towards the firm’s success from day one. Our people come first and upon joining you will be immersed in a team which feels like a family, working with role model managers and open-minded leaders who will value and listen to your opinion. At Mazars you will be part of a team where all levels work as one, and we are certain you can make friends for life.
