Salient’s 1968 Careers Supplement

Commerce Graduates

Commerce Graduates

We are seeking recently qualified commerce graduates or near graduates of above average ability and academic achievement who demand work satisfaction and a broad practical experience in a busy environment for the purpose of gaining full membership of the N.Z. Society of Accountants.

The Positions

We are able to offer experience in the following aspects of public accountancy :

1.Auditing and investigations.
2.Management services.
4.Accounting and secretarial.

Practical experience is supplemented by an extensive staff training programme. Local and national courses are conducted for each specialization together with a two-day familiarization course in November for new members of the firm.

Professional Development

After a period of training in each aspect of our practice the opportunity is given to choose a specialization for advanced training which, where appropriate, may be in an overseas office of our internationally associated organization.

We actively encourage rapid professional development to the highest level within the firm and lend support to participation in professional activities by normally granting leave for attending lectures, courses and meetings.


Graduates without practical experience will commence at $2,400 per annum. Salaries are thereafter reviewed half-yearly with diligence and ability receiving due recognition.


Membership of an attractive superannuation scheme is available to senior members of the firm.


Our offices are central and new and will be shortly located in a prestige block.

We believe that we can offer challenging positions that will appeal to ambitious graduates and we invite applications which we undertake will be treated in the strictest confidence.

The firm recognizes that applicants may not have yet finalized their intentions for employment in 1969 but believes that a discussion rather than a formal interview may be helpful in enabling a decision to be made and would be pleased to be of assistance in this regard.

Applications or enquiries should be directed to the Staff Partner:
