“The team is like a second family.” – Edana

From intern to trainee… to full-time consultant. Edana Nguyen hasn’t looked back since starting her career at BellchambersBarrett.

Supported from the start

I joined BellchambersBarrett as a summer intern in 2019. Then, at the end of the three-week stint, I was offered a permanent part-time role as an audit trainee – an opportunity I couldn’t refuse.

The first year of my traineeship was challenging. I had to learn the ropes at work while juggling my university studies.

But the team was very supportive. Even the partners would regularly check in with me to ensure I was settling in.

Growing with a tight-knit team

Two years later, upon graduation, I formally joined the firm – as a full-time consultant.

Thanks to the exposure to a diverse range of work, I now manage clients and projects with autonomy and confidence.

But the best part about working at BellchambersBarrett? Definitely the people! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. It’s like a second family. And I love that I can truly be myself.

Bright career path ahead

I’ve just started the next chapter in my career: working towards becoming a Chartered Accountant (CA) – with the full support and encouragement of my employer.

Looking back at everything I’ve accomplished so far, and knowing what lies ahead, I’m so grateful that I chose BellchambersBarrett.
