Kate Cain, People & Culture Advisor/Talent Acquisition with Accru Melbourne, has found Swinburne's placement program an excellent way to recruit high-quality permanent employees.

We are a financial services business offering a range of accounting and financial services to our clients. We recruit students to work within the Business Advisory Services and Wealth Management areas of our business. Accru Melbourne has been hosting Swinburne students for almost 25 years. One of ourDirectors, Richard Addison, began with us as a Swinburne placement student in 2001 and several of our current employees were Swinburne students, who stayed on with us after their placement and have gone on to have fulfilling careers with us.

Accounting students who join our Business Advisory Services team will have exposure to varied and interesting work. In this team they will work with individual clients, small and medium-sized enterprises and some bigger corporations across a range of industries. Students will be involved in preparing financial statements , tax returns, assisting with tax planning, bookkeeping, advisory, self-managed superfunds and 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 and clients

  • "We find it a great way to recruit high-quality permanent employees, with the majority of our students accepting permanent ongoing roles with us after thier placement."

    Kate Cain , Human Resources Coordinator, Accru

In our recent engagement survey, 98% of our employees said Accru is a great place to work. Accru provides a great young workplace environment where you can excel.

Working within a supportive, fun environment, our students get fantastic, hands-on experience and they’re paired with a buddy who assists them to transition smoothly into the firm.

Students bring enthusiasm and new ideas and I would highly recommend the placement program to students. I believe it puts the students far ahead of their peers, and for Accru it is our preferred way of recruiting.

We find the program highly valuable and hope we continue to work with Swinburne and their students for many years to come.
