The Top 25 Accounting Graduate Employer Rankings 2014

Here’s the Top 25 Accounting graduate employers ranked by the number of applications made to their Accounting  graduate program in 2014. To check out the Top 25 employers for each of the other capital cities, and for each discipline e.g. Arts, Commerce, Engineering and more check out the interactive

The Big4 Accounting firms were very well represented, with KPMG (1st), Deloitte (2nd) and EY (6th). PwC didn’t appear in the rankings, as they chose to rely more heavily on their internship program for their graduate recruitment needs in 2014 but have traditionally been a very popular graduate employer.

The Big4 were followed by the mid-tier accounting firms, with Protiviti, Grant Thornton, Nexia and BDO the most popular. It’s interesting to note that firms in non-accounting industries such as Accenture, Pitcher Partners, Ford Motor Company and Procter & Gamble also had a strong showing, with their in-house accounting function graduate programs even beating out some of the mid-tier accounting firms. Finally, there was some interest in government accounting programs too, with the Audit Office of NSW< Queensland Government and Australian Taxation Office appearing in the rankings too.

When it came to the arts, there was strong interest in the private sector with the professional services firms, fast moving consumer goods companies and banks ranking quite well. Whilst none of these companies have an explicitly named ‘Arts & Humanities’ graduate stream, they still hire arts graduates who have paired their degree with a more vocationally focused major, or standalone arts graduates who show sufficient interest in their industry and transferrable skills. There would also be the tendency for arts graduates to apply to the generalist management streams of corporates as well.

Out of all the disciplines we investigated, the public service was best represented in the arts. This may be due to the fact that government employers are more likely to offer generalist graduate programs designed to appeal to arts graduates with a more ‘holistic’ worldview than a more narrowly focused vocational discipline such as Engineering.

The top marketing employers rankings are dominated by Fast Moving Consumer Goods firms, with Colgate Palmolive, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Mars Australia, Coca-Cola Amatil, and Reckitt Benckiser making it to the Top 25.

Colgate Palmolive’s first place ranking was helped by their recruitment practice of hiring throughout the year rather than several weeks during peak graduate and intern season, which increased the pool of eligible applicants. Similar practices favoured Mainfreight, which is best known as a logistics company.

Interestingly, Deloitte ranked 3rd in marketing whereas none of the other Big 4 professional services firms made the list. Deloitte’s marketing roles can be found in their Marketing, Communications and Business Development function, along with Deloitte Digital.

The Queensland Government, which represents 17 government bodies was the most popular employer by a wide margin. As was the case with all of the other capital cities, professional services and financial services had a strong showing. There were relatively more mining and engineering employers in the list than in other cities as well.
