Samantha McGowan – Senior HR Business Partner
“As a working mum, it has always been important balancing work and home life. With a young child who is growing up very quickly, seeing all the milestones my daughter has is what’s most important to me. Azets provides incredible support to working mums which makes me proud to work for them. From the start, they have a brilliant maternity policy which allows you to spend that special quality time with your family. They offer flexible working which for me has been very useful when dropping off my daughter at the childminders. One of the other benefits is the hybrid working policy which allows me to have a mixture of working in our offices and from home – giving flexibility should any appointments come up. Azets really cares about family and the leadership team are continuously stating how important family really is – I’m proud to work for Azets and I would highly recommend them to any working mum.”
Nneamaka Ochuba – Glasgow – Audit Manager
“I started at Azets as a Graduate trainee in 2015 after completing an Accountancy degree at the University of Dundee. The firm has an excellent training programme which gave me the opportunity to learn on the job including mentoring sessions with managers. My contribution was always welcomed and valued which in turn gave me the confidence to deliver training to my colleagues. I was able to achieve my Chartered Accountancy qualification and progressed to Manager with the help and support Azets gave me with my career development. At Azets, we always support and learn from each other, we truly live by our values of collaboration and respectfulness.”
Elizabeth Young – Partner, Business Risk and Assurance Services
“I joined Azets as a Manager in 2015 and within 7 years was promoted to Partner. Azets are very supportive when it comes to career progression, it’s at the heart of what they do. I have always felt that I’ve got good support to pursue my goals and to develop within the firm.
One benefit that I particularly value is the flexible working approach. It enables me to focus and adapt my working arrangements so I can maximise the time I have to spend with my family. This flexibility and home working really helped me to transition back to work after maternity leave. This is why I enjoy working here, because Azets really do care about their employees.”
