I commenced my cadetship within Paul Haupt’s Team of DFK Hirn Newey in January 2014.
As a cadet, I was constantly supported throughout the whole process of completing my degree as I had the opportunity to work with a diverse array of accountants: partners, managers, senior accountants and other cadets like me. I was also given time off for study, and have had the opportunity to draw on the extensive and diverse firm knowledge by asking staff at manager and partner levels their thoughts on different areas of my study. The cadetship enabled me to perform work that allowed me to put my university studies into practice as well as enhanced my team work ability and facilitated my confidence growth, as I felt comfortable in asking questions and seeking help where needed.
In December 2017 I completed my Bachelor of Business (Accountancy) with Distinction and was fortunate enough to be offered a permanent full time position when I graduated. Since then, I have commenced the Chartered Accountants Program and again, the firm has supported me greatly throughout the past few months and I have no doubt, they will continue to support and guide me whilst I complete this program.
As a recently graduated accountant, I am continually being challenged and learning new skills and being given more responsibility. DFK Hirn Newey has provided me with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and has been an incredible place to learn and work. I look forward to continuing working with the partners and staff at DFK Hirn Newey and appreciate their support and guidance whilst I become the best accountant I can be.
DFK Hirn Newey has provided me with the opportunity to work on an interesting client base and on issues beyond the day to day compliance work, all in a family friendly environment. The firm has great systems, which allows me to work from home if required and with the added benefit of flexible working hours I have been able to keep my professional skills up to date while raising a young family.
The training provided is excellent and all the accountants are encouraged to participate in these sessions. The DFK Hirn Newey cadet program ensures that the firm continues to attract younger accountants – this promotes a culture of learning and mentoring.
DFK Hirn Newey has a diverse range of successful clients. I find it challenging and rewarding to be a part of the growth of both DFK Hirn Newey and their clients.
