What do you call an accountant with an opinion? An auditor
I thrive on challenge and constantly set goals for myself, so I have something to strive towards. I am always looking for an opportunity to do better and achieve greatness.
Today I feel proud to be a product of HLB. I began my career at HLB as an undergraduate back in November 2019. Almost immediately, I was exposed to a broad range of clients, from audits and local council business advisory services to off-shore clients. I was given the opportunity to work closely with the Audit Director and partners. This was a privilege because they have extensive industry knowledge, keen insight and are always eager to attend to queries and resolve complex issues.
Over the years there have been situations where I have been required to think on my feet. I have gained problem solving and innovative thinking skills. I have also become more inquisitive.
The beauty of being an auditor is that it helps you realize your hidden potentials and power.
HLB Mann Judd Fiji has been a perfect place for me to grow in terms of self-confidence, maturity, and self-management. After three and half years, I am working as a Manager in the audit team. Being part of HLB has given me a wealth of knowledge and the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, from conducting audits of schools, councils, not-for profits, companies, project audits, acquittals audit IT audits and overseeing the outsourcing special projects.
The journey has not always been easy. However, the challenges I have faced in my career have moulded me professionally and brought the best out of me. Henceforward, I plan to keep striving and to enjoy the field as well as the people that I am professionally connected to.
