FLEXIBLE STUDY PREPARED THOMAS FOR THE FUTURE
FLEXIBILITY and dedication are two vital traits that allowed Thomas HollandRoach, 23, to be what he wanted to be.
The CQUniversity Brisbane, Bachelor of Accounting graduate, had his sights set on a career in auditing and fraud investigation – a goal he has now achieved.
“CQUni helped me to be a successful accounting graduate, now turned full-time auditor at a big four accounting firm,” Mr Holland-Roach said.
Working at Ernst & Young (EY) in his dream job, as well as being a talented representative wheelchair basketballer, Mr Holland-Roach believes that studying at CQUniversity taught him how to achieve a fulfilling work-life balance.
“CQUni taught me how to balance sport and study,” he said.
“So I was prepared for the switch to sport and work – especially with how flexible both CQUni and EY have been.”
Despite working full time, Mr HollandRoach continues to play representative basketball and recently competed in the 2018 National Wheelchair Basketball League where his team took home silver and finished minor premiers. Born with spina bifida, he has never been one to let the disability get in the way of his goals.
“I knew what I wanted and I set out to get it,” Mr Holland-Roach said.
“I already had an offer for the job at EY before I had even graduated from CQUni,” he said. Tel: 132 786 cqu.edu.au
