"Managers within the Birmingham office are easily accessible as we have an open office. I can go and speak to fellow graduates, our accountants, directors and heads of department. Everyone is very helpful."
Graduate, Birmingham
"I sit next to my director and I am currently working with him on a number of projects. Although he is busy, he always makes time to help explain something or answer a question if I need help. Senior colleagues are very accessible. My manager is also my APC (assessment of professional competence) supervisor and he has been really good at scheduling regular chats to make sure that I'm on track with progressing with the APC competencies and generally making sure I'm happy with the work I'm doing etc. It's really motivating to have such great support."
