Personal development through CSR

I work in the Management Consulting department, primarily on the Transformation, HR and Change team. My current client work ranges from Employment Law and HR Advisory to Workplace Investigations and Recruitment. I have gained exposure in a wide range of areas with each sector offering new challenges and opportunities to learn.

What’s been the highlight so far?

I had the pleasure of attending a Volunteer Day with RSM’s CSR Partner, the Peter McVerry Trust, in their Residential Detox Centre. My colleagues and I worked alongside those staying in the Detox Centre, assisting with the maintenance of the centre and improving their facilities. This was a fantastic day and we all had such good fun with the residents and also got to spend time with the animals. It was an incredible day to be involved in.

What’s been your biggest challenge so far?

Previously, I was an intern in RSM Ireland during my third year of college and I worked on the internal HR team. My biggest challenge was the transition into the Management Consulting team and familiarising myself with the new role. I believe this was the right step for me to broaden my experience and opportunities and I am glad it has worked out so well.

What’s surprised you most about working at RSM?

The opportunities presented to me very early on in my career with RSM has enabled me to gain invaluable insight into the Consultancy world. The team is very dynamic, and I have been lucky enough to have worked on some very interesting client work as an Associate.

What’s next for you at RSM?

I am continuously learning here at RSM and each day brings a new challenge. At the moment I am preparing to begin an Advanced Diploma in Employment Law, to further develop my knowledge in Employment Law.

What’s your top tip for someone looking to apply to RSM?

Ensure you have practical examples relating to the competencies provided. Have questions prepared for the interview panel. Relax and don’t be afraid to show your personality!
