After completing my 4 year Business Studies degree in DCU, I set about applying for jobs in the Accountancy practices. Following the milk round application process I accepted a Trainee Accountant position in the Corporate Recovery section in RSM (formerly Baker Tilly Ryan Glennon).
From my time in the department I have be involved in a wide range of insolvency work which has given me a great deal of confidence of working on any project that is assigned to me. The experience in Corporate Recovery can also be quite wide ranging as we are constantly in contact with clients preparing reports they require while also carrying out more standard accounting duties like preparing financial statements and forecasts.
The area that I have found most beneficial in my time here is the exam support that has been offered by RSM. In house tutorials from CAI Lecturers with small groups were provided which gave us the perfect opportunity to discuss areas that we were having difficulty with and gain clarity in these areas. Coming up to exams, I found that Managers were always willing to offer advice or accommodate leave days were possible.
