Keith Molloy- DBASS Trainee Story

Keith is a Business and Management Graduate from Dundalk Institute of Technology. In June 2019 he started his journey with DBASS to become a Chartered Accountant.

At the time I joined DBASS I had no prior experience in the accountancy field. I had studied Business and Management in college and was aware that accountancy was a key area of business I was interested in learning more about. DBASS offered me this opportunity when they accepted me onto their graduate trainee accountancy programme.

At first I was unsure how quickly I would pick up all the new concepts as I had minimal accountancy experience, however DBASS have an extensive supply of training documentation to aid trainees in the completion of day to day accountancy tasks.  This coupled with the ongoing support provided by DBASS partners, managers and staff proved very helpful and within a matter of weeks I was completing many different tasks such as VAT RTDs and Corporation tax returns independently and confidently under the continued supervision of senior colleagues.

I was also provided with an induction manual during my first few days with DBASS to give me an understanding of all the different software used on a daily basis within the firm.   This proved very useful as especially in the early days there is a lot of new systems to wrap your head around and it was great to have something to revert back to whenever I was unsure on something.

After a few months I felt I had developed dramatically and begun to feel like a valued member of the team.  To date I have worked primarily within the tax department preparing and filing individual’s tax returns and also in the area of financial reporting working on company accounts and producing the financial statements for many of the DBASS clients.

DBASS are a busy, client focused firm that have given me the opportunity to prove that I was serious about becoming a Chartered Accountant.  I am confident now that with the continued support and guidance I receive within DBASS I will be able progress my career and achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a Chartered Accountant.

Having completed my CAP1 exams, I am now working towards my CAP2 exams with Chartered Accountancy Ireland and am happy to say I know I made the right decision to join the DBASS Team.
