The transition from being a university student to working within the Audit team was a steep learning curve, but the entire team were always willing to help and answer any questions I had. They took the time to ensure I understood each task and the reason behind why it was carried out.
When choosing a firm, I was looking for one which provided an environment to assist its employees to build their skills and encourage success overall. After starting at Baker Tilly Staples Rodway, I soon realised that it matched my expectations and these criteria.
As an intern, I got the opportunity to work with multiple teams on different engagements and went on a client visit by the second week. The in-depth training provided made me feel more comfortable and confident while interacting with clients.
The company culture at Baker Tilly Staples Rodway is very inclusive and focused on caring for its employees. This is demonstrated by the importance placed on ensuring the balance between work and life is met. This is achieved through the wide range of activities offered by the Social Club (Christmas Party), sports teams and office lunches on Fridays to get to know your team.
I have genuinely enjoyed my internship experience and learned a lot working alongside an excellent team. I am excited to see what my future with Baker Tilly Staples Rodway will bring.
