“I joined the firm as a trainee-chartered accountant in September 2020, after completing my Bachelors of Business and Law. HLB Ireland was the perfect fit for me as it allowed me to work with a diverse range of clients from pharmaceutical, educational institutes, and property management to the entertainment industry, to name a few. I’m also interested in the opportunity to work internationally within the firm’s global network.
