Hi, I’m Julie and I joined the Belfast office in November 2010. I work in the Corporation Tax department and am just nearing the end of my CTA qualification.
There are two offices in Belfast as our Recovery & Reorganisation service in Northern Ireland is located in its own office. I work in the primary office which is newly built and in the centre of the city, with great views from the tenth floor.
The office I work in has service lines in Corporation Tax, Audit, Corporate Finance, Government Infrastructure Advisory (GIA), Financial Planning, Payroll and VAT. These departments are supported by around 60 members of staff.
The office tends to take on around three to four audit trainees per year, with three from university and one on the accelerate programme. The other departments take on trainees as and when required, usually every couple of years.
We have a huge variety of clients including quarries, car dealerships and beverage distributors so every day is different.
Belfast, being the capital of Northern Ireland, is a lively and exciting place to be. The city is small so it has the benefit of being easy to travel around, you can walk to a lot of places. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the city which make for great nightlife. The social life within the office means that there are plenty of events to get involved with.
If you have any more questions about the Belfast office feel free to post a question below and someone will get back to you.
