Some insights from current staff members:


“As a fairly new staff member, it’s been awesome having the support and patience of more experienced staff members. I’ve felt very supported and have grown in confidence very quickly in my role.”

“CooperAitken is behind me every step of the way. Right from when I left university as a fresh graduate, through until now as a Senior Accountant. I have no doubt it will continue well into the future. They are consistently keeping an eye on my progress and give me more challenges and responsibilities when I am ready for it. They work closely with me to ensure that they are helping me get to where I want to be. The huge support they gave me while I was studying to become a Chartered Accountant was invaluable. Also, having people around that feel more like friends than colleagues makes coming to work in the mornings a whole lot easier!

There is also a fantastic Social & Culture Club which puts a lot of effort into organising regular outside-of-work activities (awesome fun stuff like quiz nights, CooperAitken Amazing Race, movie nights, Rugby games, pool tournaments etc) and in-office activities (mufti days, team building, in-office competitions, bake-off competitions etc) which are always heaps of fun!”

“I was anxious about my transition from University Life to my working life, but any nerves were soon put to rest when I started here. Being new to the area also I found everyone was extremely welcoming and supportive – the support was invaluable at a time I needed it the most”
