Nundah accounting and business advisors, DFK Hirn Newey, prides itself on its successful Cadetship Program, which supports young graduates and grows local jobs for local people.
The Cadetship Program, which hires people straight from high school, gives students industry experience while studying. Cadets are exposed to every area of accounting, including advisory matters, compliance and processing.
“We are really pleased with the success of our Cadetship Program, which has seen growth over the years,” says Gavin Johns. “In fact, one of our staff members, Mitchell Brooks, who started as a cadet many years ago, has recently been made director at the firm.”
Others who have gone through the Cadet Program have also been recognised in national accounting awards, including Brittany Morgan, finalist for Rising Star of the Year 2020, and Hannah Olsson, finalist for Australian Accounting Student of The Year 2020 and winner of the title of Best New Accountant.
“We have had 15 cadets in the program, who work with our accountants and business advisors to assist with client requests and grow their skills,” says Gavin.
DFK Hirn Newey is part of one of the biggest accounting associations in the world, with 439 offices in 95 countries.
“We believe this brings the perfect balance. We’re still your local accountants down the road, but we have an international presence that has a global reach,” says Gavin.
“We find this is particularly useful for businesses wanting to expand, but still want a team with the local knowledge they can trust.”
