EDHEC business school graduate - Joined Finexsi in September 2011
I joined Finexsi in September 2011 after gaining audit experience with a Big Four audit firm and compliance experience with a bank. On joining Finexsi, I was looking for opportunities to gain all-round skills, exposure to a variety of assignments and scope for rapid promotion in a small and friendly professional environment. And I was not disappointed!

Working at Finexsi enabled me initially to consolidate my audit expertise through statutory audit assignments in sectors that interest me (broadcasting, film-making), and to take part in other assignments (asset contribution and merger appraisals, buy-side due diligence, litigation support). I was able to put my audit knowledge to work on these new assignments and develop an integrated approach to the issues we encountered.

Since Finexsi is a small and friendly firm, one of its key advantages is that we are able to discuss highly technical points with managers and partners. That helps to integrate people rapidly within the team.

Toulouse Business School graduate - Joined Finexsi in June 2016
I joined Finexsi in June 2016 after working at a management consultancy firm and a French carmaker. <br><br>As soon as the recruitment process started, I felt there was a real difference between Finexsi and the other firms I was applying to. Firstly, there was a real dialogue, and the partners get involved at an early stage of the interview process: that helped me quickly understand Finexsi's business plan and made me want to be part of it.

My day-to-day work involves two main activities: financial audit (statutory audit assignments) and financial advisory work (company valuation and dispute support assignments). I take part in various types of assignment. For example, I can start the day doing financial audit work, and by the end of the day I'm researching financial data in relation to a company valuation assignment. It's a pretty challenging working environment, and it's great to have that challenge.

The firm is also close-knit, containing around 40 people, so as an employee I have real responsibility in my work and that allows me to progress pretty quickly.
