I studied a B.A. (Hons) in Molecular Medicine in Trinity College Dublin. Despite studying science in college I always had a keen eye for business, so when I left college I wanted to use my analytical experience in an accountancy environment. Very early on I was able to see that HedgeServ was a very people orientated company. Everyone is very approachable, no matter what their position, people are always willing to lend a helping hand if needed.

HedgeServ offers great opportunities for graduates. This creates an exciting, energetic and forward thinking environment that really focuses on practical learning and development on the job. There is an emphasis on team-work and professional progression. The increasing responsibility and regular feedback provided to me has been very beneficial in developing my skills.

In terms of my own personal development I have enrolled in ACCA, supported by the company in terms of reimbursement and study leave. There is also a network of many qualified and part-qualified colleagues who offer great advice. There is a great social aspect with regular events and many sports teams. I was fortunate enough to lead a 7-a-side football team to victory in a recent company competition.

There are great opportunities for development at HedgeServ and over the coming years I hope to grow into a role where I can put all my training and learning to good use at manager level.
