Nexia New Zealand welcomes new graduates for 2020

March 9, 2020

The word is spreading that Nexia New Zealand is a great place to work! Our latest graduates, Ashley Phibbs, Louis James, and Chelsea Jones started with us last week, and they’ve been sharing some of the reasons why they chose Nexia.

Ashley Phibbs was born and raised in Southland before moving to Christchurch to study Accounting and Economics at the University of Canterbury. In her spare time, she’s either at the gym, cooking (and eating), or anywhere outdoors. “What attracted me to Nexia all came from the networking night with the UC Accounting Society - the work environment, the summer hours and the awesome staff I met, it all had me sold!”

Louis James was born and raised in the UK before coming to New Zealand at the age of five. Louis attended school in Christchurch and then went on to study at the University of Canterbury. He is an avid Crusaders supporter and has played rugby himself since moving to New Zealand. He also enjoys going to the gym, and other sports such as touch, basketball, skiing, surfing. “I had heard many great things about Nexia and I see how fast it is growing, which made me want to be a part of that and help with that growth.”

Chelsea Jones grew up on a vineyard in Russell in the Bay of Islands and moved to Christchurch four years ago to complete her studies. In her spare time, she is a foster mum to cats and kittens from Cat Rescue. She also enjoys swimming, going to the gym and playing hockey. “Nexia’s friendly and welcoming culture is what made me want to work here.”

We’ve enjoyed getting to know our new graduates and look forward to seeing them develop. They are currently working closely with a more experienced buddy and they will have a lot of contact with our staff at all levels, including our Partners. A big benefit of being a graduate at Nexia NZ is the opportunity to get exposure to a wide range of clients, with a variety of different needs, whilst receiving lots of support from all our staff.

We are currently recruiting for our 2021 Graduates. If you like the sound of working for Nexia New Zealand, and are finishing your studies this year, head on over to our Vacancies page: https://www.nexia.co.nz/join-the-team
