I joined the RBK Graduate Programme in 2019 after completing a Law Degree in UCD. As I did not have an accounting background, I was slightly apprehensive about beginning a career in Tax. Four years on, I recently qualified as a Chartered Accountant with the Chartered Accountants Ireland and been promoted to Assistant Manager in the Dublin Tax Team, I am extremely happy with my decision to begin my career in RBK.
My favourite thing about working in the Tax Department is the variety. We manage a wide portfolio of clients, from many sectors and across multiple tax heads (corporation tax, income tax, VAT etc.), every day is different. We are constantly challenged and have ample opportunity to learn and develop new skills. I find that the diversity within my role really helps me as I complete my Chartered Tax Adviser qualification with the Irish Tax Institute, a qualification which RBK have also supported.
RBK provides support and direction in your day-to-day role and your professional qualifications. As a graduate, you'll be assigned a mentor through the 'Buddy' system, providing early-career guidance and support. RBK also offer revision classes prior to exams which graduates have found very beneficial. There is great opportunities for progression within the Firm. If you are interested in pursuing a career in accounting, I would certainly recommend applying for the RBK Graduate Programme.
