Pearse Trust Graduate Programme

We offer personnel the opportunity to develop careers in the area of company secretarial, trusts and tax. We are currently recruiting graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in the areas of company secretarial practice, trusts and tax. It is anticipated that graduates would complete the ICSA professional exams and perhaps further professional qualifications thereafter.

The Graduate Role

Each trainee is assigned to a specialised technical department, where they will assist in day-to-day operations. A vital component in a trainee’s development is the close relationship that exists between all junior members and management personnel. As part of the graduate programme the organisation has incorporated a rotation system, which allows trainees the opportunity to experience the different services we provide through placement in various departments and/or through assignment in our network of offices located in Dublin, Bray, London and Wellington.
