AUDIT TRAINEE

Start your career in Audit with us.

Our Mission

At Sedulo we are building a world class team to deliver our mission to make positive change in the communities we work in. We do this by:

  • Working with our clients to transform their business and personal finances
  • Connecting and contributing to the business community in the cities we are located in
  • Working with charities by volunteering, fundraising and influencing change both now and in the future through the Sedulo Foundation
  • Being a great place to work and develop your career

At Sedulo we embrace a holistic and innovative culture with diversity and integrity at the heart. We are working to build an open and inclusive environment which supports the needs of all our team members.

We are looking for people to join the team who want to deliver beyond expectation and get results. Whether this be through embracing feedback, creating fulfilling relationships with colleagues and clients, being genuinely interested in their work, or by simply being the best version of themselves. At Sedulo, we know how important it is to create an environment for positive change, both in work and in the communities, we work within. This is demonstrated through our persistent commitment to charitable projects and a strong focus on innovation in everything that we do. You can make an impact at Sedulo, not only through delivering amazing work, but also through participating in the charity campaigns we run throughout the year. Alongside all of this, our events team ensure we also have a lot of fun – with countless wellbeing activities and events being hosted at all our offices every week!

We understand that to be a world class organisation, we must embrace uniqueness and choose courage over comfort. Everything we strive to be is grounded in our core values: Personable, Integrity, Holistic, Innovative and Deliver Beyond Expectation.
