Rebecca has just recently joined Timothy & O’Connor having graduated from Institute of Technology Tralee with a 1st class honours BBS degree in Accounting. TOC is a training firm accredited by ACCA Ireland to provide the practical experience necessary to educate the next generation of accountants. Our vision, mission and values inform our commitment to invest in our people and our graduate development programme is designed to support our trainee accountants through their professional exams with access to market leading educational courses. Working in a busy professional accountancy practice provides trainees with the range and depth of experience necessary to ensure they achieve the practical experience entry requirements of the ACCA and contribute to the development of the profession in the future.
Rebecca began her traineeship at TOC with a running start having completed her 3rd year internship with the firm. The experience gained during this work placement has been formative and convinced Rebecca that life as a professional accountant was for her. Experience gained while working in the hospitality industry during her summer employments will stand Rebecca in good stead as she develops her communication and client interface skills and juggles with a work, life and study balance over the remainder of the development programme.
