“Being a graduate at William Buck is an exciting and rewarding experience. It’s easy to meet your fellow colleagues due to activities like Grad College, team lunches, and firm-wide events. Furthermore, despite navigating the challenges of working from home, the ongoing support shown by William Buck through weekly catch-ups and team activities ensured that every graduate felt valued and a part of the team. I look forward to continuing my career journey at William Buck and I am excited to have the opportunity to meet more clients and expand my knowledge of accounting”.

“It’s really good that even as graduates we are exposed to all different levels of work if we are keen. Moreover I really appreciate the fact that we get guidance directly from the directors here at William Buck.
I really enjoyed my work at William Buck as a grad last year as even though the borders were closed, I got the chance to travel a lot around WA for different audits. I am looking forward to the next level of work and be more comfortable and confident in doing work which the intermediates and seniors mostly do.”
