“I had a friend already working for William Buck, who encouraged me to join the William Buck Graduate Program. Through the program I had the ability to apply my tertiary education and theoretical knowledge to real life situations and was supported through rigorous and available mentorship and training events. Due to the amount of knowledge available in the industry and the support William Buck provides me to obtain it, I see my career growing steadily with my Chartered Accountant accreditation and holding a senior position with William Buck. The best thing about working at William Buck? – my colleagues and the associated culture.”
– Ryan Hilhorst, Business Advisory, Auckland
