Team Testimonials

“Working at Altius has given me opportunities to learn and grow in my career!

I started as a graduate accountant and was exposed to diverse clients which introduced me to a variety of accounting systems, meeting new people and gaining incomparable experience.

The partners, managers and colleagues are supportive and provide a welcoming working environment that enabled me to progress to a senior level.

The firm provides training, mentorship and responsibilities that helped me to develop research, critical thinking, and teamwork skills. I am grateful to Altius for giving me the opportunity to work with such an experienced team which has facilitated me to develop professionally.

If you like to travel, meet people from various backgrounds and like to feel valued as an employee then Altius is your place!”

Fabiola Imanirakiza

“When I was deciding on my graduate opportunity, I had clear in my mind that I wanted a placed that would provide me with exposure to different accounting areas and challenges over the years. The first step to a successful career should be one that would allow me to keep walking forward with the support from colleagues, and driven by the firm’s commitment to excellence. Such endeavour is only possible when you find great work environment and work-life balance.

I am grateful for working at Altius. I have been continuously learning new things and have been presented with many opportunities to test my skills and grow beyond my own expectations. The guidance provided by our leads inspired me not only as a professional, but also to be a better person.”

“It is absolute pleasure to work Altius. The firm is highly committed to training their people. The people are all creative, supportive and open-minded to work with! I had the great privilege of working together with brilliant people from all different cultural backgrounds and become united as a team. Our partners and managers are not just typical partners and managers, but they are great leaders and mentors! They know how to think outside the box, and are willing to listen to our ideas, concerns and suggestions.

As a graduate accountant at Altius, you will have a great exposure to a variety of client organisations and audit situations. I have been given responsibility and support from the start. It truly is a perfect place for developing the best qualities in yourself.

Working at Altius was a life-changing experience to me!!!”

“I started at Altius a year ago, from the very first day at the firm I have enjoyed ongoing support from partners, managers and other team members. This support has made a huge impact on my performance as it helped me to quickly adapt with the new environment and easily cooperate with the team to achieve the firm’s targets.

I was also amazed by the huge exposure to different business structures, variety of clients and the experience I got from different audit engagements I participated in, in addition to the ongoing trainings and seminars the firm has provided throughout the year. Furthermore, it has been entertaining as many of the audit engagements involve travel to different spots in Far North QLD which has been a great chance to see remote areas and meet new people.

Overall, in terms of professional development and work environment every minute at Altius has been a pleasure and I will recommend every graduate/professional to join the firm.”
