Indy Sukma, Accountant at Hamilton Murphy

“I wanted two things from a graduate role: 1) to learn as fast as I can, and 2) experience as much as I can – Hamilton Murphy helped me achieved both.

During my time as a Graduate Accountant, I had the opportunity to deal with complex, yet exciting, matters that I would only experience further along in my career, which I was fortunate enough to experience early with Hamilton Murphy. The technical and interpersonal skills that I cultivated as a Graduate Accountant have led to my promotion as an Accountant within my first year in the industry. My journey is a testament of how much a Graduate Accountant can learn and grow in this organisation.

The people and culture are the best parts about Hamilton Murphy. There is a continuous commitment to ensuring that everyone is seen and heard, and the emphasis that I reach my goals, both professionally and personally, have accelerated my skills in the industry and facilitated my growth as a person. Hamilton Murphy has supported me in my studies to become a Chartered Accountant, a mentorship program with the Women in Insolvency and Restructuring Victoria (WIRV), and my attendance at industry events and social activities.”

Matthew Robson, completed internship at Hamilton Murphy

“My time at Hamilton Murphy has been a brilliant experience that shed light on an industry that university students often don’t hear much about. It’s opened up opportunities for me that I’d not previously considered.

One thing that is very clear about Hamilton Murphy is that it’s an organisation that truly cares about your development. I was fortunate to be involved in multiple continuing professional development (CPD) sessions with the whole team, as well as receive one-on-one mentorship and guidance from members of the Corporate team. I’ve learnt about the processes that follow with insolvency, as well as sharpened my analytical, writing and accounting skills. It has been so interesting to learn about where businesses can go wrong, and I have enjoyed applying these insights to the world around me.

The firm has a very supportive culture, and you are encouraged to reach out whenever you need help. The people here are kind and help to make starting your career a much less intimidating challenge. What’s more, everyone was more than happy to share their experiences, which I appreciate as I navigate my career choices.

Overall, Hamilton Murphy offers a great opportunity to learn in a growing firm and I cannot wait to see where it goes in the future.”

“If I was to use one word to describe my experience at Hamilton Murphy over the past month, I would say ‘inspiring’. I have met so many brilliant individuals who have both inspired and encouraged me along my journey here, and I feel more than lucky to have had these learning and growth opportunities here at Hamilton Murphy Advisory (HMA).

Before even applying to join the team at HMA last semester, I was just like most students my age – confused and overwhelmed with all the possibilities out there, yet not knowing what I truly wanted out of a career. However, things from the classroom started to make a lot more sense after having worked in a corporate environment, and I have learnt so many interesting and useful things that were never taught in school. In my opinion, one of the best things about working in insolvency was knowing that your work had a real impact on real people, especially people who were in difficult situations. This has inspired me career-wise and given me a much clearer direction in career choices. I feel much more confident and empowered when faced with opportunities and decisions now, and I am grateful for HMA for my growth.

However, the people at HMA were the true highlight of my time here. Everyone is hardworking yet approachable, they are very understanding and are always willing to help no matter how stressful the day is. As someone who was working in a business environment for the first time, I found it much less intimidating than expected; in fact, you can always catch good banter in the office. As a student, I think HMA provided the perfect learning environment for me: it is fun, engaging, but also packed with learning opportunities.”

Grad Testimonial 02

“During my time at Hamilton Murphy, I have learnt some of the key fundamentals and processes surrounding insolvency. It is quite a niche area of accounting and prior to my internship I had very limited knowledge of this field. Throughout the internship I have learnt a variety of technical skills relating to insolvency such as how to use different accounting software packages, analyse financial data, reconcile bank statements, and conduct financial investigations. I have also improved my soft skills in areas such as professional writing, teamwork, and problem solving.

The highlight of my internship at Hamilton Murphy was when I was sent to Melbourne for a week to work on a trade-on for a high-profile case of ours. I was visiting the sites daily and got to do some hands-on work for the case. I learnt a lot from this trip, and it was great to see firsthand how a complicated case is managed.

I also have had the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with both partners of the firm and it was very interesting to learn about their careers and where they see Hamilton Murphy going in the future.

Seeing how ambitious and enthusiastic everyone is at Hamilton Murphy is very inspiring and there is an excellent workplace culture. I really appreciate how welcomed all the staff at Hamilton Murphy made me feel. Everybody was encouraging and friendly and made time to help me when I had difficulties. I look forward to coming back and working for Hamilton Murphy when I finish university for the year.”
