I studied a Bachelor of Business Studies (Hons) degree in DCU. As part of my college degree, I completed a 12 month internship with HedgeServ where I feel I gained valuable experience in the role of a Fund Accountant and was presented with a clear indication of what a career in the industry would be like. Upon completion of my final year in college, I was offered a full time position and was delighted to accept.
Since returning to HedgeServ I have continued to expand my knowledge of hedge funds with extensive in-house training programmes which greatly help me with my day-to-day tasks and responsibilities. I have now progressed to Supervisor after two years and have exposure to a wider range of funds. My role has given me the opportunity to develop my analytical, inter-personal and communication skills and has fostered my ability to multi-task and
succeed in a results-oriented, fast-paced environment.
I am currently studying towards my ACCA qualification as HedgeServ provide a full tuition support programme for the ACCA exams as well as for other professional qualifications such as ACA, CIMA and CPA. All of my colleagues are extremely supportive around exam time which really makes a difference when trying to balance my work and study.
I would highly recommend a role with HedgeServ to any perspective graduates.
