Christopher Hall, Manager, Tax Advisory
“I joined Azets in 2021 during the pandemic, which meant predominantly working remotely during the early months with the firm. Despite this, from ‘Day One’ I was very pleased to find I was able to commence work on interesting, engaging, and challenging new projects, having been assigned a portfolio of varied clients from the outset, which I was encouraged to continue to build upon.
Through all this time, the friendly team around me provided assistance and support whenever I needed it, whilst openly embracing my input and suggestions.
Azets has given me several opportunities for personal and professional development and offers me an invaluable flexible working environment which allows me to adjust my working hours to accommodate my childcare commitments as a single parent of two.
The entire interview process was very efficient and effective, and allowed both parties to ensure the right decision was made. Despite it being an incredibly hard decision to leave my old firm, I found the openness and honesty of the Talent Acquisition Manager to be invaluable in assisting with making the right choice to move, after spending 15+ years within a Big Four Firm and I’ve not looked back since.”
