I joined KPMG in 2006 and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2010. Over the last five years I have progressed from Manager to Associate Director and most recently I have become a Director within our FS Audit practice.
In 2010 I travelled on a global mobility assignment to work in our Perth office. During my time there I was involved in the IPO of a client on the Hong Kong stock exchange. This IPO was widely covered in the news, recognising that the contribution you make has an impact on the business world. There are the obvious benefits of experiencing a different culture and getting to see a new country. As this was a significantly smaller office than Dublin, there was constant interaction with senior management improving my management and leadership skills.
In my opinion, what makes KPMG stand out from our competitors comes down to the fact that KPMG enables working with top level clients operating in both the Irish and international market place, giving you access to some of the most senior people in these businesses. In addition to this, we have an excellent business school who provide superior training and resources to all staff members. There is also great support from senior management within KPMG which assists your confidence in dealing with clients.
In my spare time I enjoy running and tennis and play on one of many KPMG tag rugby teams.
