Our vacationer program

Great careers can be defined by where they started and at Fordham we offer an exciting opportunity to be part of one of the fastest-growing chartered accounting firms in Australia. As a specialist part of Perpetual, we offer the opportunity to work in a business advisory firm with the backing of a trusted diversified financial services company.

Our four-week Vacationer Program will provide you with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in the accounting field while finishing your studies. Our workplace philosophy at Fordham is about investing in people, collaborating with peers, putting clients first, and offering an environment where diversity of thought is encouraged.

You will be meeting clients and interacting with Fordham Partners and improving your skills through technical and professional training. You will also have the opportunity to attend our end of year social events during the lead up to Christmas.
