OHS, as a growing medium size firm, is always looking for accomplished individuals. We have positions for both trainee accountants and experienced professionals.
OHS offers bursaries for students, studying or wanting to study, towards becoming a chartered accountant. We also offer vacation work to students during the year to enable them to gain valued work experience.
Some reasons why our current employees would recommend working at OHS:
3rd year trainee:
One-on-one training (on the job and internal training when considered necessary)
Small audits with lots of exposure to all aspects / sections of an audit
Direct liaising with partners on any issues (open door policy)
1st year trainee:
“I personally enjoy the fact that OHS is a relatively small firm. This assists trainees as you’re less likely to get lost in the system and provides a great support system with regard to education and personal development. The company has a great, well rounded culture. OHS has had considerable experience with SAICA and trainees so they are well aware and understand the difficulties that trainees experience and the various pressures exerted on us. The company also has a large portfolio of clients so potential chartered accountants are exposed to a wide range of accounting and auditing experience. The idea of working and studying is extremely daunting. This is made worse by the fact that when someone applies for a traineeship, they have effectively committed themselves to a company for a minimum of three years. The selection of a company for an internship is significant and can have a major impact on a student’s ultimate success or failure. Students should choose a company that views them as an individual and not just as an employee, as well as a company that makes an effort to assist them in reaching their goal in the shortest period of time possible. OHS encompasses all these attributes. “
