Personal Statement

My primary objective is to develop and utilise my skills and knowledge to establish a career in the banking and financial services industry. My aim is to apply my experience in customer service and background study in business and finance to further myself within the corporate environment and continue to develop skills and traits to take advantage of opportunities and take initiative to accelerate my progress. My long term career objective lies in the superannuation and finance industry as it is a passion of mine and I couldn\u2019t see myself doing anything else. I love learning new things and being able to improve my current skills.

  • Work Experience at AUSCOAL Superannuation

    During this week of work experience I spent three days with the Financial Advisory team in Warners Bay where I saw how all facets of the business is run from contributions and benefits to sitting in on advisory meetings with clients. The final two days of the week I spent with the Investments team in Sydney where I sat in on a meeting with a perspective fund, visited the custodians and external asset consultant to experience how they fit in with AUSCOAL\u2019s overall management and structure. I also read through various tenders, reports and frameworks related to AUSCOAL. Overall I gained an insight into how a Superannuation fund is run and managed. This eye opening week cemented my view to work in the Superannuation and Financial Industry.
