Good people; work is an acquired taste
Audit Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Aberdeen, Aberdeen City – 6 October 2018
The Aberdeen office is full of great people of varying abilities. It is a little unnerving at first, joining as an Experiened Hire, but soon you will become a part of the team.
Great opportunities for reasonably quick progression, if you are willing to put the work in.
Busy season can last from January to March, April, May or June, depending on your client base. With statutory reporting deadlines and SOX procedures, there is usually little in the way of 'slack' periods. Chageable hours in the height of busy season can range from 40/45 to 65/70, again depending on your client base.
I would say that managers and senior managers are worked fairly hard still, although there is the odd exception to this rule.
The Aberdeen office suffers from quite a high staff turnover from senior (post qualification) and therefore is usually understaffed at this level.
1pm finish on a Friday
Intense busy season with little slack throughout the year.
