Meet Max

Bachelor of Business Law (Monash University), Masters in Banking & Finance (Monash University)

Currently obsessed with golf and Stranger Things.

On the weekend, if I’m not at the golf course, I’ll generally be with friends at one of Fitzroy’s many pubs.

What do you love about working at Evans Dixon?

I love the youthful and energetic vibe around the office. The staff are of a similar age so we find we have a lot in common and will often catch up outside business hours. From a work perspective, my seniors never shy away from giving me responsibility and are always conscious of my current workload. It makes you feel like you are a valued and respected member of the team.

Describe your best moment so far

My best moment so far was when I was offered a position in the research department of the business. This was an area of interest within the business that I identified early in my career and, after approaching the team and beginning to take on small bodies of work on top of my usual responsibilities, I was eventually offered a full-time position. My previous manager was very supportive and helped facilitate the move, highlighting Evans Dixon’s commitment to its staff and career progression.

How have you been supported in your career development?

The business places a strong emphasis on helping you build your skills and gaining valuable hands-on experience. At first, I was surprised to be given such significant tasks at such an early stage in my career. However, I soon learned these presented terrific opportunities to develop skills and receive valuable feedback from key personnel within the business.

Who would enjoy working here?

Someone confident and outgoing. The office is vibrant and energetic. We regularly go out for drinks on a Friday night or compete in sporting events such as Corporate Games or the annual CA Futsal Tournament.

What tips or advice do you have for future applicants?

Show the HR team what type of person you are, your unique personality and that you’re keen to be part of the business. I think a lot of applications can be generic and cliché and don’t allow employers to see your personality. All the staff within our office are friendly and personable, so highlight these traits in your application. Another tip is to talk to people you don’t know and network. When I was applying for my first role with the company, I mentioned that I’d had a conversation with a particular staff member at an expo who spoke positively about the company and said that I had a lot in common with other staff who worked there. I think this helped my application because I came across as amiable and it helped me stand out from the crowd.

 

Meet Millie

Bachelor of Political, Economic & Social Sciences (University of Sydney)

Currently obsessed with Jamie Oliver. I think he’s an exceptional person who is doing great things for the community, but he’s also a fabulous cook. I’m also currently trying to work out what to cook for a big family gathering. It’s very exciting but the pressure is on!

On the weekend, you can usually find me hanging out with friends. I especially like hosting people for dinner.

What do you love about working at Evans Dixon?

I work with a fabulous team. The people that I work with are all very good at what they do, but are different characters and have original approaches to their work and clients.

Describe your best moment so far

One of the best experiences for me has been learning how to buy and sell shares on the ASX for clients. At first, it’s a nerve-racking experience because it’s all new and instantaneous, but you do get used to it and it’s satisfying when you are able to get a good price for a client.

How have you been supported in your career development?

I’ve had a lot of exposure to working with a lot of intelligent experts who each share their ideas. They’ve helped shape my own thoughts and knowledge of markets and the industry.

Who would enjoy working here?

In my role, you need to be very self-motivated. You need to be good at taking initiative and driving your own projects within the team. If you like to have autonomy, you would like working in my role.

What tips or advice do you have for future applicants?

What helped me in my application was really thinking about the actual role I would play in the bigger business and making sure I highlighted how I could add value to the team. Try and understand what your role will look like, and showcase what you can bring to the table and show how you could be an asset to the team.

 

Meet Sweta

Bachelor of Commerce – Accounting & Finance (University of Melbourne)

Currently obsessed with plants and trees – especially the PlantNet app – download it to see for yourself how addictive it is.

On the weekend, you’ll either find me outdoors hiking or at the beach, or binging on Netflix.

What do you love about working at Evans Dixon?

I love the culture and the people. It’s such a positive environment to work in and everyone is so happy to help or chat with you, which is really important when you’re starting out because you tend to ask a lot of questions. Also, in accounting, we’re not just doing accounting, we’re constantly learning about the complexities of the superannuation industry, which is a fascinating industry to be a part of.

Describe your best moment so far

I like the social functions the best because you get to know your team members better. But my stand-out favourite moment would have to be the sushi and pizza making masterclass we just did. And my team made the best pizza! Not long ago we also went mini golfing at Holey Moley, which was heaps of fun.

How have you been supported in your career development?

I wanted to do my Graduate Diploma in Chartered Accounting and Evans Dixon has paid the tuition fees and is providing me with paid study leave. I also participate in a fair amount of in-house training, especially practical exercises where you get to experience mock meetings, which has been very helpful in building my knowledge and confidence.

Who would enjoy working here?

You need to enjoy coming to work, not just for the work, but also because you want to get to know the people you’re working with and want to be a part of our dynamic office culture.

What tips or advice do you have for future applicants?

Do your research on the team you’re applying for and understand the industry. The accounting team specialises in preparing the financials for self managed super funds, so for our team, it helps to be interested in superannuation in general.
