Chris Dennell

I joined Mercer & Hole in September 2013 as an audit trainee in the St Albans office.

As soon as you arrive you get hands on with both work and with college. I sat all six of the ACA e-assessments before Christmas and began the learning for the first three written papers soon after.

The work has a good variety of accounts preparation jobs in the office and going out to clients to perform audits and I found this variety really helped as a good basis towards my exams.

I was also given the opportunity to spend three months working in the Corporate Finance department in the London office. This was a great experience as I got to work with clients in different ways than I would have in Audit and feel I learned a lot in this time. During this time I assisted on company valuations, company sales, due diligences and expert witness reports.

I have also enjoyed the social side of Mercer & Hole having played in a 5-a-side football match against the Milton Keynes office and in a couple of cricket matches against other firms.

I have now been with the firm for around 18 months and have now passed all 6 of my professional level exams leaving the final three advanced level exams to be sat in November. Over this time I have moved onto larger and more complicated work and have found the progression challenging without being impossibly difficult.

I’m really glad I chose Mercer & Hole and am looking forward to a long career here.
