“The vacation program was a great introduction to full time work, providing invaluable on the job exposure and excellent training opportunities.  From day one, everyone at Pitcher Partners was welcoming, friendly and approachable.  I was exposed to a range of client work and enjoyed putting my uni work into practice.”

Christine – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

"I had an amazing 4 weeks as a vac at Pitcher Partners, getting real experience in a professional accounting firm, working with clients, getting used to wearing a suit every day and meeting some awesome people. The environment at Pitcher Partners is great, very welcoming and supportive and we received lots of training. I also completed 6 weeks vac work at a big-four firm and it really confirmed that Pitcher Partners was the place I wanted to work."

Michael – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“Calling a program a great experience is a bit of a cliché, but the Pitcher Partners vacation program really was! Not only did I gain exposure to the type of work completed in the industry, which I could then apply during my final year of university, but the people and culture at the firm made the month really enjoyable. PP staff were always willing to help and give up their time which allowed all the vacationers to benefit from their knowledge and feel welcome.  The program was the reason I decided to become a graduate at Pitcher Partners rather than some of the other firms.”

This broad exposure provided a great learning experience.

What were the highlights of the intern placement?

The ability to associate with a wide range of people, both co-workers and clients. The firm’s friendly environment, in particular, the 'open-door' policy which definitely facilitated my transition from university to the corporate world.

Work-life balance in the form of weekly social events and participation in various corporate sporting events.

The national graduate training program held in Queensland, which provided a great opportunity to liaise with other graduates and obtain some sound technical knowledge as well. 

Would you recommend the Pitcher Partners Intern Program to other students?

Most definitely. The intern program provides a unique opportunity to gain useful practical knowledge and consolidate the theory learnt at university. Pitcher Partners is a very welcoming environment which provides the assistance and experience required to kick-start a successful accounting career.

“The vacation program was a great introduction to full time work, providing invaluable on the job exposure and excellent training opportunities.  From day one, everyone at Pitcher Partners was welcoming, friendly and approachable.  I was exposed to a range of client work and enjoyed putting my uni work into practice.”

Christine – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

"I had an amazing 4 weeks as a vac at Pitcher Partners, getting real experience in a professional accounting firm, working with clients, getting used to wearing a suit every day and meeting some awesome people. The environment at Pitcher Partners is great, very welcoming and supportive and we received lots of training. I also completed 6 weeks vac work at a big-four firm and it really confirmed that Pitcher Partners was the place I wanted to work."

Michael – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“Calling a program a great experience is a bit of a cliché, but the Pitcher Partners vacation program really was! Not only did I gain exposure to the type of work completed in the industry, which I could then apply during my final year of university, but the people and culture at the firm made the month really enjoyable. PP staff were always willing to help and give up their time which allowed all the vacationers to benefit from their knowledge and feel welcome.  The program was the reason I decided to become a graduate at Pitcher Partners rather than some of the other firms.”

Profile of an Intern

Lorina – previous Intern – Business Advisory and Assurance

Describe what sort of work you were exposed to during your Intern placement.

Being part of the Business Assurance and Advisory (BAA) division at Pitcher Partners gave me exposure to a variety of tasks such as audit procedures, completing tax returns, BAS statements, preparing financial statements and other administrative duties. This broad exposure provided a great learning experience.

What were the highlights of the intern placement?

The ability to associate with a wide range of people, both co-workers and clients. The firm’s friendly environment, in particular, the 'open-door' policy which definitely facilitated my transition from university to the corporate world.

Work-life balance in the form of weekly social events and participation in various corporate sporting events.

The national graduate training program held in Queensland, which provided a great opportunity to liaise with other graduates and obtain some sound technical knowledge as well. 

Would you recommend the Pitcher Partners Intern Program to other students?

Most definitely. The intern program provides a unique opportunity to gain useful practical knowledge and consolidate the theory learnt at university. Pitcher Partners is a very welcoming environment which provides the assistance and experience required to kick-start a successful accounting career.

Lorina was successful in receiving an offer to return to Pitcher Partners after completing her final year of University. Lorina recently returned to the firm as an Accountant 2, one level higher than a Graduate in January 2012.

Being part of the Business Assurance and Advisory (BAA) division at Pitcher Partners gave me exposure to a variety of tasks such as audit procedures, completing tax returns, BAS statements, preparing financial statements and other administrative duties. This broad exposure provided a great learning experience.

What were the highlights of the intern placement?

The ability to associate with a wide range of people, both co-workers and clients. The firm’s friendly environment, in particular, the 'open-door' policy which definitely facilitated my transition from university to the corporate world.

Work-life balance in the form of weekly social events and participation in various corporate sporting events.

The national graduate training program held in Queensland, which provided a great opportunity to liaise with other graduates and obtain some sound technical knowledge as well. 

Would you recommend the Pitcher Partners Intern Program to other students?

Most definitely. The intern program provides a unique opportunity to gain useful practical knowledge and consolidate the theory learnt at university. Pitcher Partners is a very welcoming environment which provides the assistance and experience required to kick-start a successful accounting career.

What next for Lorina?

Lorina was successful in receiving an offer to return to Pitcher Partners after completing her final year of University. Lorina recently returned to the firm as an Accountant 2, one level higher than a Graduate in January 2012. 

Eligibility Criteria

Student in their penultimate year of study.

Profile of an Intern

Lorina – previous Intern – Business Advisory and Assurance

Describe what sort of work you were exposed to during your Intern placement.

Being part of the Business Assurance and Advisory (BAA) division at Pitcher Partners gave me exposure to a variety of tasks such as audit procedures, completing tax returns, BAS statements, preparing financial statements and other administrative duties. This broad exposure provided a great learning experience.

What were the highlights of the intern placement?

The ability to associate with a wide range of people, both co-workers and clients. The firm’s friendly environment, in particular, the 'open-door' policy which definitely facilitated my transition from university to the corporate world.

Work-life balance in the form of weekly social events and participation in various corporate sporting events.

The national graduate training program held in Queensland, which provided a great opportunity to liaise with other graduates and obtain some sound technical knowledge as well. 

Would you recommend the Pitcher Partners Intern Program to other students?

Most definitely. The intern program provides a unique opportunity to gain useful practical knowledge and consolidate the theory learnt at university. Pitcher Partners is a very welcoming environment which provides the assistance and experience required to kick-start a successful accounting career.

What next for Lorina?

Lorina was successful in receiving an offer to return to Pitcher Partners after completing her final year of University. Lorina recently returned to the firm as an Accountant 2, one level higher than a Graduate in January 2012.

What to expect

Alison – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“The vacation program was a great introduction to full time work, providing invaluable on the job exposure and excellent training opportunities.  From day one, everyone at Pitcher Partners was welcoming, friendly and approachable.  I was exposed to a range of client work and enjoyed putting my uni work into practice.”

Christine – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

"I had an amazing 4 weeks as a vac at Pitcher Partners, getting real experience in a professional accounting firm, working with clients, getting used to wearing a suit every day and meeting some awesome people. The environment at Pitcher Partners is great, very welcoming and supportive and we received lots of training. I also completed 6 weeks vac work at a big-four firm and it really confirmed that Pitcher Partners was the place I wanted to work."

Michael – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“Calling a program a great experience is a bit of a cliché, but the Pitcher Partners vacation program really was! Not only did I gain exposure to the type of work completed in the industry, which I could then apply during my final year of university, but the people and culture at the firm made the month really enjoyable. PP staff were always willing to help and give up their time which allowed all the vacationers to benefit from their knowledge and feel welcome.  The program was the reason I decided to become a graduate at Pitcher Partners rather than some of the other firms.”

What to expect

Alison – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“The vacation program was a great introduction to full time work, providing invaluable on the job exposure and excellent training opportunities.  From day one, everyone at Pitcher Partners was welcoming, friendly and approachable.  I was exposed to a range of client work and enjoyed putting my uni work into practice.”

Christine – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

"I had an amazing 4 weeks as a vac at Pitcher Partners, getting real experience in a professional accounting firm, working with clients, getting used to wearing a suit every day and meeting some awesome people. The environment at Pitcher Partners is great, very welcoming and supportive and we received lots of training. I also completed 6 weeks vac work at a big-four firm and it really confirmed that Pitcher Partners was the place I wanted to work."

Michael – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“Calling a program a great experience is a bit of a cliché, but the Pitcher Partners vacation program really was! Not only did I gain exposure to the type of work completed in the industry, which I could then apply during my final year of university, but the people and culture at the firm made the month really enjoyable. PP staff were always willing to help and give up their time which allowed all the vacationers to benefit from their knowledge and feel welcome.  The program was the reason I decided to become a graduate at Pitcher Partners rather than some of the other firms.”

Profile of an Intern

Lorina – previous Intern – Business Advisory and Assurance

Describe what sort of work you were exposed to during your Intern placement.

Being part of the Business Assurance and Advisory (BAA) division at Pitcher Partners gave me exposure to a variety of tasks such as audit procedures, completing tax returns, BAS statements, preparing financial statements and other administrative duties. This broad exposure provided a great learning experience.

What were the highlights of the intern placement?

The ability to associate with a wide range of people, both co-workers and clients. The firm’s friendly environment, in particular, the 'open-door' policy which definitely facilitated my transition from university to the corporate world.

Work-life balance in the form of weekly social events and participation in various corporate sporting events.

The national graduate training program held in Queensland, which provided a great opportunity to liaise with other graduates and obtain some sound technical knowledge as well. 

Would you recommend the Pitcher Partners Intern Program to other students?

Most definitely. The intern program provides a unique opportunity to gain useful practical knowledge and consolidate the theory learnt at university. Pitcher Partners is a very welcoming environment which provides the assistance and experience required to kick-start a successful accounting career.

"I had an amazing 4 weeks as a vac at Pitcher Partners, getting real experience in a professional accounting firm, working with clients, getting used to wearing a suit every day and meeting some awesome people. The environment at Pitcher Partners is great, very welcoming and supportive and we received lots of training. I also completed 6 weeks vac work at a big-four firm and it really confirmed that Pitcher Partners was the place I wanted to work."

Michael – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“Calling a program a great experience is a bit of a cliché, but the Pitcher Partners vacation program really was!

Alison – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“The vacation program was a great introduction to full time work, providing invaluable on the job exposure and excellent training opportunities.  From day one, everyone at Pitcher Partners was welcoming, friendly and approachable.  I was exposed to a range of client work and enjoyed putting my uni work into practice.”

Christine – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

"I had an amazing 4 weeks as a vac at Pitcher Partners, getting real experience in a professional accounting firm, working with clients, getting used to wearing a suit every day and meeting some awesome people. The environment at Pitcher Partners is great, very welcoming and supportive and we received lots of training. I also completed 6 weeks vac work at a big-four firm and it really confirmed that Pitcher Partners was the place I wanted to work."

Michael – Previous Vacationer – Business Advisory and Assurance

“Calling a program a great experience is a bit of a cliché, but the Pitcher Partners vacation program really was! Not only did I gain exposure to the type of work completed in the industry, which I could then apply during my final year of university, but the people and culture at the firm made the month really enjoyable. PP staff were always willing to help and give up their time which allowed all the vacationers to benefit from their knowledge and feel welcome.  The program was the reason I decided to become a graduate at Pitcher Partners rather than some of the other firms.”
