'the opportunities are endless!'
Baker Tilly Mooney Moore - Stephen McIntyre, ACCA affiliate, University of Ulster graduate
After graduating from the University of Ulster at Jordanstown with a BA Honours in Accountancy, I joined Baker Tilly Mooney Moore in 2010. I was attracted to the Graduate Programme for a number of reasons; I knew I would gain experience across a range of specialisms, being part of an international network was very appealing and I was keen to work in a medium sized practice. I was also impressed by the study support package and the firm's exam success rates.
At Baker Tilly Mooney Moore I have been given the opportunity to gain external audit and accounting experience by working with a wide range of clients including, limited companies, partnerships and sole traders in various sectors. These assignments involve working on my own or as part of a team, either in the office or at client's premises.
I decided to study for the ACCA Qualification and actually gained exemptions from eight exams through my degree. I attended classes at the University of Ulster at Jordanstown and found the development of online tutorials a great help when revising for my exams. As the firm is an independent member of an international network there are opportunities for staff to be seconded to firms in the Baker Tilly International network. These opportunities are not solely limited to the United Kingdom and with an internationally recognised qualification, such as ACCA, you have the opportunity to advance your career by working internationally in Australia, Singapore and the USA to name a few. The opportunities are endless!
