Currently obsessed with plants and trees – especially the PlantNet app – download it to see for yourself how addictive it is.
On the weekend, you’ll either find me outdoors hiking or at the beach, or binging on Netflix.
1. What do you love about working at Evans Dixon?
I love the culture and the people. It’s such a positive environment to work in and everyone is so happy to help or chat with you, which is really important when you’re starting out because you tend to ask a lot of questions. Also, in accounting, we’re not just doing accounting, we’re constantly learning about the complexities of the superannuation industry, which is a fascinating industry to be a part of.
2. Describe your best moment so far
I like the social functions the best because you get to know your team members better. But my stand-out favourite moment would have to be the sushi and pizza making masterclass we just did. And my team made the best pizza! Not long ago we also went mini golfing at Holey Moley, which was heaps of fun.
3. How have you been supported in your career development?
I wanted to do my Graduate Diploma in Chartered Accounting and Evans Dixon has paid the tuition fees and is providing me with paid study leave. I also participate in a fair amount of in-house training, especially practical exercises where you get to experience mock meetings, which has been very helpful in building my knowledge and confidence.
4. Who would enjoy working here?
You need to enjoy coming to work, not just for the work, but also because you want to get to know the people you’re working with and want to be a part of our dynamic office culture.
5. What tips or advice do you have for future applicants?
Do your research on the team you’re applying for and understand the industry. The accounting team specialises in preparing the financials for self managed super funds, so for our team, it helps to be interested in superannuation in general.
