Which path will you take?

Audit & Assurance

To be effective, assurance work demands a deep understanding of a client’s business, its goals and the market in which it operates. Our client base is very diverse and we use technology to enable a “paperless” audit approach. Our sophisticated evaluation and analytical tools help us to identify the risks and opportunities that our clients face.

Business Advisory

Business Advisory Services works with a broad range of New Zealand and overseas businesses including some of this country’s most successful companies. As a graduate, you will have the ability to work closely with, and be mentored by, team members who have achieved some outstanding accomplishments throughout their own careers.


If you enjoy keeping up with the play and thinking creatively, the constantly changing world of tax may appeal to you. Most business owners appreciate the importance of controlling costs and welcome advice on ways to legitimately minimise their tax. Baker Tilly Staples Rodway are well known as tax specialists with an experienced team who are happy to assist new tax team members to develop their tax skills. Our reputation in tax can be traced back to the publication of the Staples Tax Guide, regarded as the ‘tax bible’, which was originally written by founder Charlie Staples and is now in its 79th edition.
