Staff Testimonials

Hear from our past and current colleagues…

I’ve worked with the firm for over 15 years; my loyalty, dedication and respect for the firm is continually reinforced by the workplace culture, flexibility and professional development offered. During my employment the directors have provided essential mentoring, flexibility and financial support to enable me to successfully complete my CA qualification. They continue to provide the professional development and learning opportunities I require to further my career and enjoy my role and responsibilities. In 2005 I was able to take a career break to travel overseas with my husband; a life experience that rewarded and further cemented my commitment to the firm and motivation in my career. Working at Synectic has allowed me flexibility and control regarding my working hours, including successfully performing my management position on a part-time basis. My family is the most important thing in my life and the directors support this, allowing me to take leave when my family needs me, without fear of negative consequences. The firm promotes a family-friendly environment and truly delivers on this promise.

Naomi CloseAdministration Manager / Accountant (1999-current)

I came to Synectic from one of the big 4 firms so it was important to me to continue my career in a firm that I felt upheld the same professional standards that I’d been used to. I was also ready to start a family, so it was important that the firm I chose catered for this. I had a number of employment options and chose Synectic. Most employers advocate that they are family friendly, however, in my experience this does not always occur in practice. Synectic have provided a great family friendly environment to work in, with true flexibility, to cater for the birth of my 2 children and returning to work on a part-time basis. Appreciation is always shown from the partners when you are able to work outside of normal part-time hours to meet deadlines and assist clients, however it is never expected. The professional standards of the firm are very high Synectic embraces changes in technology. Partners are interested not only in improving the firm, but ensuring that all staff enjoy coming along for the ride, continuing to develop both professionally and personally. After ten years with Synectic my personal circumstances have lead me to a change of employment, however, I have no problems recommending Synectic as a great place to work.

Roslyn KingstonClient Manager (2007-2017)

I find it to be a great place to work … the culture is great and in terms of the accounting field it’s certainly the place I want to be. It’s offering great career opportunities … They’ve been very supportive in terms of training and ongoing professional development, and also with pursuing interests outside of work. It’s a growing firm, which is great; it’s good to be a part of it.

Kurtis AlexanderClient Manager (2012-current)

Synectic’s a great place to work as they offer great experiences for graduate accountants as well as the opportunity for further training. They’ve been very supportive. I’ve been assigned a mentor and she has allowed me the time to adjust. To start with I’ve been allocated to self-managed super funds, and throughout the year I’ll progress through to auditing, as well as accounting and taxation.

Stephanie JacksonGraduate Accountant (2013-current)

I have worked for Synectic for much of my career; personal circumstances have required me to work elsewhere at times but I have always been welcomed back. To perform my role well I need to be passionate about the business I work for and feel included in the directors’ vision, which is why I choose to work with Synectic. I enjoy a challenging and dynamic role while being able to meet my personal and family needs. Importantly, I am given autonomy but also get to work with a fun and supportive team.

Suze AtkinsonBusiness Development Manager (1999-2001, 2004-2008, 2010-current)

I started here as a graduate, now working as a client manager. Synectic is a good place to work for the fact it’s a nice sized firm. It is small enough that you get to know everyone quite well, but large enough that you get experience and insight into most areas of accounting.
