Ex-Placement Student Comments

Radhika’s Comments:

“Working as a Trainee Accountant at Prager Metis has been one of my most memorable and rewarding experiences to date. The firm allowed me to apply my theoretical knowledge to practical experience which reinforced my understanding, by carrying out bookkeeping, tax and VAT returns and preparing year end accounts. I was also able to gain an insight into more advanced areas of both accountancy and tax which has aided me in my final year of University. Returning to University after having undertaken this placement has brought me more motivation and dedication towards my studies and career within accounting.
I feel that my overall experience exceeded my expectations and this is due to the size of the firm and the niche industries that it specialises in. As it is a small-medium sized firm, there was great scope for me to develop myself both personally and professionally and I also had the opportunity to learn and regularly work closely with individuals that are more senior at the firm – a prospect that I had never considered before joining! The approach towards the placement year allowed me to create and strive towards my own goals. As everyone at Prager Metis is very welcoming and supportive, the atmosphere is one in which you have a real potential to flourish.”
