Cusack Garvey - Rosemarie Kealy, ACCA student, Griffith College Dublin graduate
After graduating from Griffith College Dublin with a BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance, I spent a few months travelling in the USA. On my return, I was certain I wanted to start my career in accountancy. I chose ACCA as employers recognise it as an international qualification that delivers highly skilled individuals. It is very flexible as exams are held twice a year and students have ten years to pass all exams so I can decide how many exams I want to sit each year. It is important to balance work and studying with other commitments.
As a trainee with Cusack Garvey I have excellent opportunities to work for a diverse range of clients. The work is varied and I am continuously learning new skills. Each day can be a challenge with new assignments and responsibilities and I find this very rewarding. I am getting practical experience across a broad range of areas including preparation of accounts and taxation.
Cusack Garvey has an excellent training structure. They are very supportive and assist students in every way possible to pass their ACCA exams. Cusack Garvey offers a generous training package which includes paid tuition fees, paid study leave, paid exam fees, payment of annual subscription fees and time off to attend lectures. They have a fantastic track record of ACCA exam prizewinners and while the bar may seem very high it is definitely something worth aiming for. Working in a medium sized practice has been an excellent choice for me and I am looking forward to passing my remaining exams and continuing my career in accountancy.
I would recommend Cusack Garvey and ACCA to anyone wishing to pursue a career in Accountancy as there are endless career options both at home and abroad.
