What do you think the three most important skills for your job are?
Communication – with both clients and engagement team members; The ability to think on your feet and problem solve; and Resilience.
What do you love most about your job?
The freedom and responsibility that I am given over my own work, whilst at the same time having a strong support structure if I need it. The teams and the people that I work with.
What training / qualifications have you done?
I have sat 10 exams for my ACA qualification so far. There are 15 exams in total which I hope to complete by November 2020. As well as completing exams, the qualification requires 3 years training experience, with a minimum of 450 days’ worth of client work, which I am currently working towards.
Is there any other information that would be of interest to someone thinking of embarking on a career in audit?
Audit is a very rewarding career, and if you think that it may be for you then I would recommend trying work experience. KPMG in the Channel Islands offers flexible work experience placements for University and A-Level students, which will give you a good insight into the world of audit. This is how I personally started my KPMG in the Channel Islands career.
