I joined RBK as an Audit and Accounting Intern in June 2021 in the Roscommon office. I was made feel welcome from the very first day. The firm’s open-door policy was very beneficial as I felt comfortable approaching my seniors and managers at any time. I was encouraged to ask questions and everyone in the firm was patient and willing to explain things that were new to me.

As a recent graduate in Accounting and English, I wanted to obtain a practical insight into the accounting profession before I further embarked on my accountancy career. RBK afforded me with the opportunity to explore diverse industries and service lines. As part of my internship, I assisted in accounts preparation, completed income tax returns and VAT submissions. I also received extensive training on accounting software packages.

The training and support that RBK provides is exceptional, and it is something that they take great pride in. I learned many lessons that apply not only to accounting and the principles and practices associated with that subject, but also to life as a professional in a real-world work environment.

My summer internship with RBK was an incredible learning experience that I will bring forth into my future career as an accountant. I am grateful to have worked alongside some of the most experienced professionals at RBK and, through our time working together, made friends for life.
