My name is Paul Kelly and I work as an Audit Assistant in Ernst & Young.
I studied Accounting & Finance and really enjoyed the practical side of the course. The skills and knowledge that I learned in LIT are hugely transferrable in my current role.
My typical day would involve working as part of a big team and communicating with clients throughout the course of the day. Teamwork plays a big part in my role at Ernst & Young because we generally work in a collaborative space where we can all talk to each other and work towards solutions.
There are a lot of opportunities within Ernst & Young to challenge myself and that’s part of the reason why I took on the job.
I was very lucky to find a job that was close to home as I only live just five minutes down the road. I think it’s very important for Limerick to have employers like Ernst and Young to provide LIT graduates like myself with employment opportunities.
