Staff testimonials

Slide 1

I started with Carey Group nearly 3 years ago straight out of James Cook University. One of the aspects that attracted me to Carey Group was the multiple office locations and the option to relocate with the firm. I relocated from Townsville to the Tablelands. Carey Group supported this move by ensuring I am still connected across the offices and can take advantage of any opportunities. It was a fairly smooth transition and now I get to work with other team cohorts across the offices which has helped with developing both my social and professional skills.

Gabrielle Winspear
Slide 1

When I first started my journey at Carey Group, I was put in charge to oversee audits for our long-term clients, this is where our auditing business service started to grow. Starting at around 5-10 audits, I now manage the audit department which consists of around over 70 or more audits year to year. I manage the division and have been given the reins to grow Carey Group’s auditing service for the group with the confidence from our directors for me to solely oversee this division. I have worked at the Carey Group for over 20 years now, the best part about working here is not only the confidence placed on me to run my own ship (so to speak), but the flexibility in my work hours while raising my two young children, who are now teenagers and don’t need me as much these days . I can still attend all their school events and achievements. Another good thing about this work environment are the staff and friendships that we all have in and out of the office.

I approached Carey Group to complete my Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program because of their strong and appealing family values. Upon starting my WIL, I felt very welcomed and supported by all team members and I was thrilled at the opportunity when offered a Graduate Accountant position.

Slide 3

When Carey Group accepted my Work Integrated Learning (WIL) applications the emotions were ecstatic as after my interview, I had hopes to work for their firm. The WIL program creates an opportunity for impactful and effective ways to put my classroom learning into practice and enhance the objectives and skills that I had my manager set. Upon completing the WIL program, I was offered a Graduate Accountant position and I could not be happier with my experience at Carey Group.
