About You

Role Description

Involved in auditing, accounts and taxation within the firm. Gaining experience in all three areas as well as working on projects independently.

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

The insight experience was very enjoyable, everyone in the office was friendly and I gained hands on experience - something unable to learn from university. I actually enjoyed learning about auditing and taxation a lot more than I expected!


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I felt very valued and was taken for lunch with the whole team on my last day!


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

I did not receive mug guidance at the start of my insight experience however I gained a lot of knowledge in taxation policies which I had limited knowledge prior to working at Baker Tilly.


4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

The skills I developed enabled me to understand much more of my accounting units at university and I was also able to apply for the Baker Tilly Placement scheme


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

There were times where they had run out of things for me to do.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

The office was hardworking but also friendly


7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

They team allowed me to work independently on many projects and so I feel that they really did improve my knowledge by training me this way.


8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

I was allowed to work with all teams within the office and so developed an understanding of their roles quickly.


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

I think it helped to understand- they are definitely hardworking and less chatty!


10. How valuable was the content of the day in helping you to decide on your future career path?

It made me feel that I would be able to do this role if I wanted to which I was surprised about. But I also felt that it was quite monotonous and so wouldn't like working there for a long career without changes.


Other Information

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Some people described events but not much.


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

I would recommend anyone this to anyone who is undecided about going into auditing, accounting and taxation.
