The Ferrier Hodgson Vacationer Program is an excellent way to gain practical, hands on experience and learn more about our business through a structured work experience placement! We understand that our industry and service lines may be of interest to you, yet you have limited insight into what we really do from your University studies. You can therefore join us for a few weeks as a Vacationer to experience working at Ferrier Hodgson. This allows you to make more informed career decisions prior to graduating from university. Many of our best Graduates began their career as a Vacationer and were amazed at how much they learned through a work experience placement.
Participating in the Vacationer Program is an excellent way to gain a first-hand understanding of the diversity of work we do at Ferrier Hodgson and what it would mean to work as a Graduate at the Firm. Our Vacationers are part of a structured program that provides valuable hands on experience for those wanting to experience work outside of the mainstream accounting areas (i.e. Tax and Audit).
You will gain a sound understanding of the type of work we do and get exposure to clients through challenging and diverse projects. In addition you’ll participate in regular information sessions, get to ask lots of questions and gain an appreciation of our supportive and open culture, work environment, social events / functions, and most importantly, our people.
There are Vacationer Program opportunities available in the Brisbane office for a 2 week period commencing Monday 18 November or Monday 2 December 2013.
To be eligible for a Vacationer placement, we require you to be:
Studying a Commerce / Business degree majoring in Accounting
In your penultimate year of your degree
An Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident at the time of applying
Interested and available for a Graduate Position the following year.
If you have a keen desire to gain practical experience and insight into the accounting industry before graduating from university, then Ferrier Hodgson’s Vacationer Program may be right for you!
VACATIONER TESTIMONIALS Please see below testimonials from our recent vacationers...
Jean-Martin “Ferrier Hodgson introduced me to the unique, ever-evolving world of insolvency. From day one I was afforded actual responsibilities, which enabled me to achieve genuine positive outcomes for the Firm. Owing to the diverse nature of the world of insolvency, a career with Ferrier Hodgson promises endless opportunities to expand and develop your expertise on a challenging global playing field”.
Richard “I have learnt a great deal throughout my time at Ferrier Hodgson and the vacationer experience has been a fulfilling and intuitive experience. Upon acceptance into the Ferrier Hodgson vacation program, my next intention was to get a better understanding of Insolvency and what part it played in our economy. I’ll be honest in saying that prior to the commencement of the vacation program, my knowledge of insolvency went as far as a lecture attended at university, and we all know what university lectures are like.
After two weeks of exposure to sensitive information and real world problems, I can say that I am more adept and suited to a profession that I knew little of before. The vacationer experience, has not only given me an insight into the profession of insolvency at Ferrier Hodgson, but more so, a desire to work in insolvency / corporate recovery, upon completion of my university degree in 2013.”
