What Graduates Say About Them
  • So many learning opportunities. Get to meet high level executives and have exposure to a wide variety of industries and businesses, listed and non-listed, not for profit, etc. Social benefits of monthly and bi-monthly events. Fast paced learning environment; always learning something new, never "on pause." Support for CAANZ study.
  • The learning and development opportunities, and the culture! Everyone is so nice and helpful - it really contributes to me feeling supported while in my first year of working!
  • The people are welcoming and friendly and there are a lot of company perks. Flexibility to work from anywhere
  • Definitely the people - At all times in a day there is a number of people who are willing to help, and everyone has a plethora of work experience that you can tap into.
  • Getting an experience early in my career that I wouldn't be able to obtain anywhere else
  • Lesser pay compared to other grad roles
  • The study as well as full time work.
  • How quick everyone expects you to pick things up. Sometimes it can be a little overwhelming.
  • Small fish in a big pond. Sometimes stress and hours can be high
  • For some it may seem like the role demands a lot from you as the learning curve is very steep and so there is a risk of drowning yourself if you choose to take on too much.

Given the end result of a deal can be life-changing financially for our clients, it is incredibly rewarding to help contribute towards that end goal, where they are able to realise the value of the result of years of their sacrifices, investment and hard work!
