Kate Cain, Human Resources Coordinator with Accru Melbourne, has found Swinburne's placement program an excellent way to recruit high-quality permanent employees.
Accru Melbourne has been hosting students for over 16 years. One of our Partners, Richard Addison, began with us as a Swinburne placement student in 2001 and two of our managers and several other employees were Swinburne students who stayed on with us after their placement.
We recruit students to work within the Business Advisory Services and Wealth Management areas of our business.
In Business Advisory Services they work with individual clients, small and medium-sized enterprises and some bigger corporations across a range of industries. Students are involved in preparing financial statements and tax returns and assist with tax planning, bookkeeping and much more.
Students placed in our Wealth Management area get hands-on experience preparing investment reports and financial advice documentation for individual clients, and in day to day dealings with financial institutions.
