Phoebe Brown started on her journey to become a Chartered Accountant with four years of tertiary studies and three years’ work experience which will finish in mid-2017.
Asking for an exposure to a wide variety of clients, Phoebe registered with a recruiting agency. She was then put in touch with Gilligan Sheppard resulting in a perfect fit. Her interview with Bruce was an introduction to what it’s like here – straight to the point and unafraid of asking the hard questions.
Phoebe describes a relaxed and professional working environment and that everyone here is a bit of a joker. The team is really helpful and their technical knowledge is impressive. They are all well-travelled and she enjoys listening to the interesting stories in the lunch room.
Phoebe Brown’s advice is don’t be afraid of asking questions to get to the bottom of any issues you might be facing. You never stop learning and we can all learn from each other.
Outside of work Phoebe Brown enjoys being in the water, boogie boarding has taken her latest fancy. Looking forward to travelling, the top of Phoebe’s list is going back to Europe because she loved the history and the culture.
Her first language is Mandarin and she studied English in Primary School. Phoebe is in the middle of learning another three languages; Spanish, Italian and French.
