Aisha Weise-Forbes from our recruitment team is on a mission to talk to people around our business to challenge myths and assumptions for people considering a career in Accountancy and Professional services or even at Blick Rothenberg.
In this episode Aisha chats with Andy Briggs, a Director in our Corporate Tax department, who shares some insight into his own experience at both Big Four and smaller firms.
Aisha said “I’m so excited to share this episode of Myth Busters with you because it touches on an assumption I hear a lot. I have spoken to several soon-to-be qualified finance professionals who have goals of moving In-house. Most people feel this move will offer them more autonomy and variety, but this isn’t always the case.”
Aisha spoke with partner Jim Brown to discuss the importance of working as a team and the visibility of senior management.
“I often walk past Directors and Partners while in the office and we have a quick chat…“how are you getting on?” “how was your weekend?”. These moments are a testament to who we are at Blick Rothenberg, friendly people who genuinely care.”
Among many of Jim’s nuggets of wisdom is his point on micro interactions. Formal training is important but the informal interactions you’ll have with your team can be just as useful within this industry.
