Vacationer program

You’ve studied hard and you are interested in finding out about opportunities beyond the mainstream accounting roles such as audit or tax but you’re not sure what the alternative is?

Participating in the Ferrier Hodgson Vacationer Program is an excellent way to gain a first-hand understanding of the diversity of work that can open up beyond the mainstream.  It provides an opportunity to see we do and what we’re like.

As a vacationer you will:

  • participate in a structured program;
  • attend regular information sessions;
  • get to ask lots of questions;
  • gain an appreciation of our supportive and open culture;
  • work closely with partners and senior accountants on active matters; and
  • be exposed to complex and challenging work.


The information sessions you attend and experiences you have will give you a real insight into our full range service lines including corporate advisory, restructuring and turnaround services, forensic accounting and forensic IT.

The Ferrier Hodgson vacationer program ensures this important decision making process is two-way, enabling us to find out more about you, and you to decide whether our firm is right for you.

To apply for the vacationer program you should be in your penultimate year of a commerce or business degree majoring in accounting. Many of our vacationers are offered full-time graduate roles so you should also be interested and available for a graduate position upon completion of your studies.

Our vacationer programs are held in the summer university break.


Graduate program

At Ferrier Hodgson we are committed to your career evolution and our graduate program focuses on helping you develop in the early years of your professional career.

As a graduate, you will enjoy our comprehensive orientation program which provides opportunities to develop both technical and professional skills and supports the transition from university to work.

The highlight of orientation is our National Learning Program (NLP) where all graduates are brought to a central location to meet with graduates from across the country and participate in a comprehensive two day training program.

Your learning opportunities don’t stop at the end of the NLP. You will continue to be mentored and coached by our senior accountants and partners who are keen to share their knowledge and experience to ensure you succeed. You will be surrounded by bright and experienced people, have access to excellent technical resources and be involved in interesting client work.

Our vacationer program is the talent pipeline for our future graduates. Typically, our graduate positions are offered to candidates who have successfully completed the vacationer program.  On occasion, some offices will advertise graduate positions externally.
