Connecting with our future accountants, auditors and advisors
Last month we had the pleasure of hosting Tasmanian University Business and Economics Society (TUBES) students for a morning of conversation, presentations and an office tour. It was a great opportunity to share a bit about WLF, including our background, range of services and the foundations that launching a career with WLF can provide.
The morning started with Dean Johnson, a Partner in our Business and Personal Advisory division, and Agnes Gondek, Manager speaking with the group about what their standard work-day entails –highlighting that in fact there isn’t actually a ‘standard day’ and the broad variety of our clients and services means that every day is different and presents something new.
Agnes also shared her personal career journey, talking about her progression from a bookkeeping role to a Manager in Business and Personal Advisory.
Next on the agenda was a presentation from Alison Merridew, a consultant with our Audit, Assurance and Advisory division. Alison gave our visitors a great insight into evolving global topics in the audit and accounting landscape, and how these are filtering into our national and local work:
- Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting
- Carbon Accounting
- Gender equity reporting
Our TUBES event wrapped up with a light lunch, and People and Culture Manager Michael Gozzi sharing with participants how they could become part of the WLF team.
