I applied for my training position at Lubbock Fine through their online application system, it opens up at the beginning of your final academic year of university. From day one, Lubbock Fine has given me the sort of valuable hands-on experience that wouldn’t necessarily be provided by larger firms. The supportive culture here means that trainees are given every opportunity to learn. All the partners and managers are very friendly, approachable and always on hand to guide us in the right direction. Each of us gets individual mentoring with frequent one-to-one meetings.
Since I started working here in September 2012 I have had numerous opportunities to work on a wide variety of audits, accounts and tax jobs. There is no doubt that this has helped me tremendously in my ACA studies. If I had to give other grads any advice? When choosing to apply you will find yourself applying to lots of different firms. If you are lucky enough to have a lot of offers and opportunities, pick the place that feels right for you. From my very first day in the office I knew that I had made the right choice to join this firm.
