What’s it like to work at Fordham? Get a taste by following a typical day for one of our young staff.
Arrive at work
I arrive at work. It’s going to be a busy day. There’s that problem that Michael, my boss, gave me yesterday about how to structure the tax for a growing engineering business. I’ll have to get back to that one. I think there’s something about it in the latest tax report…
I meet with a Partner to go through a client’s business plan. I have responsibility to do the first draft myself, after having met with the client and looked through their financial statements. But there is always the safety net of a director to sign off on the final plan.
I like to grab a coffee when my brain is full. One of our new graduates is in our breakout area – she’s the “buddy” I’ve been assigned to help learn the ropes at Fordham. We’re going to the Spring Racing Carnival in a couple of weeks as a firm social event, which is always a bit of fun.
Social catch up with mate
End of a long day. I catch up with my new buddy at the local pub. I’ve finally finished a big restructure for a new client. Involved coordinating lawyers, bankers, the ATO and of course, the client. I just love that type of work!
