What prompted each of you to go on a secondment?
Eleanor: When I applied to PKF, I heard it had a good relationship with the PKF offices in Australia and that there could be an opportunity of a secondment when I qualified. Other secondees said it was an amazing experience, and the Australian lifestyle appealed to me.
Matt: I’d always wanted to live and work in Australia. The lifestyle looked incredible, and I wanted to experience a different working culture in another country.
Miriam: The secondment opportunity was first mentioned when we joined the firm as graduates and so it was something I’ve always had in the back of mind before I qualified. Also, working in Australia was completely out of my comfort zone and so I wanted to challenge myself.
