Hot innovation area: Graduate recruitment

With the demand for graduate accountants intense, Etax Accountants has opted to channel its innovation thinking into the area of graduate recruitment. The firm has traditionally engaged graduates on short-term contracts to provide support through the tax season. It has also provided training and a range of benefits to these graduates. However, employee feedback prompted a rethink. Etax’s Accelerate Graduate Program was born to bridge the gap between university and industry. Key elements include job-ready training, the practical application of skills and knowledge in the workplace, and networking events providing direct connection with influential finance industry professionals.
