Be an Empowered Student

Our industry is changing, and we are ready to support the next generation in redefining the role of an accountant. When you join Crowe MacKay as a student, you will receive hands-on practical experience allowing you to explore various career opportunities within the accounting industry. From audits and taxes to working with non-profits and corporate clients, you will receive the training and support required to achieve your CPA.

Over 50% of our partners are what we like to call Crowegrown – meaning they’ve built their careers with us, starting as a student.

As believers in continuing education, we take our professional development beyond the numbers. We continually train on emerging technical concepts and industry trends and you can also expect to explore topics that uphold our corporate social responsibility pillars. Diversity, equity, and inclusion practices are woven into the Crowe Culture, creating safe spaces for all employees to be their authentic selves. 

Customize Your Career

Life is unpredictable – we get it. Whether it’s a broken dishwasher, an early afternoon soccer game, pursuing a passion hobby, or learning a new skill, we all need flexibility. How each of us defines flexibility can vary, which is why we offer flexible work hours, remote working options, and generous vacation time to provide you with the support and time away to care for what matters most in life.

Invest in Your Physical, Emotional, and Financial Wellbeing

Along with our competitive benefits, we offer programs allowing you to customize your wellness. Our Employee Assistance Program offers you a spectrum of support ranging from relationships and family matters, mental health, financial and legal support, and workplace learning solutions.

Working with spreadsheets can make it tough to get your steps in (especially during busy season), that’s why we created our Crowe Wellness Program, which gives you flexibility in how you receive some TLC. Whether you join one of our fitness challenges or access our on-demand yoga and meditation, you'll receive the tools to create healthy habits.

We offer an Employee Volunteer Program in addition to other volunteer opportunities our offices coordinate, allowing you to give back more to your community.

Our employees are an essential piece of what allows us to be the trusted advisors to our diverse client base across eight offices in northern and western Canada. We can’t do what we do without you and have committed to creating a culture that shows just how much we care. From social events and cultural celebrations to service recognition and appreciation gifts, we want you to enjoy your time at Crowe MacKay.
