"In 2016 I joined DHKN as a trainee accountant and found it a great place to complete my training contract. DHKN provided me with ample study leave and I was always able to ask colleagues for help in any area of my coursework.

With this support, I placed in the top two in Ireland (and top ten worldwide) in Advanced Taxation, Advanced Audit and Business Analysis.

In 2021 I completed the Chartered Tax Advisor exams and now work with a wide range of clients in DHKN’s Taxation department.”

Ian Wynne - Graduate Trainee at DHKN

"“I interned at DHKN in 2019 and was lucky enough to get a trainee place after I completed my Global Commerce degree at NUI Galway. There is a great life/work balance in DHKN. The environment is demanding but not stressful. Everyone, from partners to other trainees, is accessible and happy to help me learn and grow.

I’m part of the Medical team and I’m able to work on all aspects of a client assignment from initial contact through to filing business and personal tax returns.

I feel that the trainee programme in DHKN will equip me well for my accountancy career, wherever that takes me.”
