Based at GMcG Portadown, my placement year gave me tremendous experience and insight into what it is like to be part of an Accounts team. I had the opportunity to work with clients across numerous industry sectors, helping prepare financial statements and tax returns, as well as developing expertise across a range of systems and reporting procedures. It was a hugely enjoyable placement with first class guidance and support from senior management throughout.”
