Across July and August, Carla Torras Martí, an economics student at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, completed a secondment at Kreston Reeves. Carla worked within the London, Chatham and Canterbury offices experiencing the full spectrum of departments that allow Kreston Reeves to provide the wide range of services it does for its clients.
Carla was introduced to us through the Firms membership to Kreston International. Carla is the daughter of Mercè Martí, Chairwoman and CEO at IBERAUDIT Kreston and this allowed for the introductions to be made for a successful secondment.
Carla commented, ‘I was delighted to have been given the opportunity by Kreston Reeves to carry out my work experience internationally as from a young age I have wanted to learn English abroad and meet new people from different countries and cultures.
I have learnt and improved on many skills through both work and personal experiences during my time at Kreston Reeves and I can truly say that my experiences have encouraged me to stay in this field in the future. I really enjoyed my time there and feel very lucky to have been a part of the Kreston Reeves team.’
Carla worked with both partners and managers across the Firm and was given many opportunities to broaden her skill set including assisting on charity audits, learning new technical procedures across areas in both corporate and business services and sitting in on internal and client meetings.
Clive Stevens, our Executive Chairman, was one of the partners that spent time with Carla during her placement and commented, ‘Kreston Reeves are delighted to have welcomed Carla to the team and she was very helpful in contributing to many of the projects we are working on at the moment.
We are proud to have shared with Carla the hard work that is involved in providing the quality services and expertise we do for our clients.
Kreston Reeves are dedicated to increasing the accessibility to the accountancy profession for young people as well as broadening their horizons for what their future holds and setting up secondments such as this helps to fulfil this mission.
It was a pleasure to have Carla with us and we wish her well in her studies and in fulfilling her ambition to pursue a career in the accountancy profession’
