Meet the team - Hannah Boland from Moree

4 December 2019

Name: Hannah Boland

Role: Manager, based in Boyce Moree.

1. What sparked your interest in a career with Boyce?

I love living in rural communities, so the fact that Boyce had multiple regional office locations in NSW was a big drawcard for me. I grew up in Yeoval, NSW, a small town in the Central West, so finding a job in Financial Services in a place like Moree was my goal.

2.  Describe your path to securing your current role?

In 2006 I was in my last year at the University of New England in Armidale studying a Bachelor of Financial Administration and I applied for a Graduate Accountant position at the Boyce Moree office. I secured the role and a few years later was promoted to the role of Accountant. I am now a Manager, so working for Boyce has been great for my career progression.

3. What do you love about your job?

I love working with my clients; assisting them to best understand their financial position and make informed decisions is really rewarding. The drought has been challenging for lots of people in this community including our clients. It is in times like these that one of our Boyce core values of care for clients truly shines through; our clients need our support now more than ever.

4. What do you love about living and working in Moree?

It’s exciting to be working in a highly productive agricultural community where technology is always changing and our clients are always challenging the norm.

5. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time outside of work hours?

Outside work hours I am raising two young children with my husband. I’m also currently the President of the Moree Picnic Race Club, so there is always plenty of planning and collaboration with the Committee as the annual race weekend approaches each May.

Meet the team - Mitch Webb from Goulburn

17 November 2019

Meet Mitch Webb, an Accountant in our Goulburn office. 

1.      What sparked your interest in a career with Boyce?

Word-of-mouth around Goulburn has always been very positive about Boyce. I was near the completion of a Bachelor of Accounting at The University of Canberra when I heard about the possibility of a role at Boyce Goulburn. I had six interviews in total as the team was trying to determine the best-fit role for me. I ended up completing my degree on a Friday and starting at Boyce as a Graduate Accountant on the Monday!

2.      What do you love about your job?

I am just about to celebrate my first anniversary with Boyce, having started in November 2018. I am really enjoying the social aspect of the firm, it’s a great team environment. I also find the puzzle of tax planning challenging and rewarding. Some of our clients are primary producers and the current drought is having implications on their business. It’s feels good to be able to assist them with their tax and take away that stress for them.

3.      What do you love about living and working in Goulburn?

I’m originally from Sydney, but I have been living in Goulburn for a few years now. I was travelling to Canberra for Uni several days a week while I was studying. I like the fact that Goulburn is a country town with lots of friendly people, but it’s also close to major cities like Sydney and Canberra. I often head to Canberra on the weekend to catch-up with Uni friends and it only takes me an hour to get there.

4.      What do you enjoy doing in your spare time outside of work hours?

I love going to the gym and I compete in bodybuilding competitions. In 2018 I won the Australian Novice Bodybuilding Championship. I am currently starting to prepare for my next competition in 2020. I feel like a have a really positive work/life balance. I love my job and my sessions in the gym, so things have really fallen into place for me.

Role: Tech Cadet

Location: Boyce Dubbo Office, The Central West, NSW.

Word of mouth about Boyce as an employer in Dubbo has always been really positive, so when I saw a job on Seek with them I was very keen to apply.

Being in drought seems to have brought the community in Dubbo together. Everyone is very keen to shop locally and support local businesses whenever possible.

 I enjoy spending time on the walking trails that are around Dubbo. I was born and bred here, so I am really excited to have landed a great role in my local town.

Lots of my family and friends work in financial services, including my Dad. I have always had an interest in this sector, so when I finished school in 2015 it was an easy decision for me to pursue a career in this field. I like the fact that Boyce has a wide range of clients, including in the Agricultural industry, as that keeps the job interesting and challenging.

3.      How did you secure the cadetship?

I had done some online research and felt like Boyce would be a great firm to work for. I called one afternoon asking about the cadet program and if there were any positions available in the near future. Coincidently they were about to start advertising for a cadet position the following week. I came in for my interview a few days later and managed to secure an offer of employment. The timing was perfect!

I’m from Sydney originally and moved to Wagga in June 2018. I was interested in working and studying in the country as the diversity of the work and the way of life appealed to me. I’m finding Wagga a friendly place to live and work; it’s an easy town to live in with everything you need and a desirable country-feel.

5. What do you enjoy doing outside of work and uni hours?

I have a dog named Roxy and we are like two peas in a pod. I spend a lot of time with her, which is fun, she keeps me on my toes.
