Vacation Program

The vacation program at Pitcher Partners is one of our most popular student programs.

Shine bright in our popular vacation program, a unique opportunity for students to increase their chance of securing a graduate role before completing their degree!

Running for 4-8 weeks over the summer break, our vacation program provides students with a variety of experiences including the opportunity to gain real life work experience, technical and professional development training, exposure to the friendly Pitcher Partners' culture, career information sessions, networking events and much more. 

Together with regular exposure to our partners and senior managers, and a strong support network via an allocated buddy, this program allows you to promote yourself.

What to expect

Alison – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance
“The vacation program was a great introduction to full time work, providing invaluable on the job exposure and excellent training opportunities.  From day one, everyone at Pitcher Partners was welcoming, friendly and approachable.  I was exposed to a range of client work and enjoyed putting my uni work into practice.”

Christine – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance
"I had an amazing 4 weeks as a vac at Pitcher Partners,  getting real experience in a professional accounting firm, working with clients, getting used to wearing a suit every day and meeting some awesome people. The environment at Pitcher Partners is great, very welcoming and supportive and we received lots of training. I also completed 6 weeks vac work at a big-four firm and it really confirmed that Pitcher Partners was the place I wanted to work."

Michael – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance
“Calling a program a great experience is a bit of a cliché, but the Pitcher Partners vacation program really was! Not only did I gain exposure to the type of work completed in the industry, which I could then apply during my final year of university, but the people and culture at the firm made the month really enjoyable. PP staff were always willing to help and give up their time which allowed all the vacationers to benefit from their knowledge and feel welcome.  The program was the reason I decided to become a graduate at Pitcher Partners rather than some of the other firms.”
