Trainee Testimonial

Receiving a traineeship at Merit Partners, just a few months after completing my schooling at Darwin High School, has allowed me to jump straight into the accounting industry and into my dream job. Having the opportunity to learn from all the experienced and supportive staff has allowed me to grow as an auditor and is a major help in completing my studies at Charles Darwin University.

From the day one of joining Merit, I was made to feel part of the Team. The best part of  Merit is  undoubtedly its ‘PEOPLE’.

With a lovely working environment & professional approach, it has been a great learning experience.
