Work Experience As an Accountant

Colenbrander is passionate about the accountancy industry of the future. Our unique careers focus gives aspiring accountants the chance to experience the industry when these career decisions need to be made: at high school level.

As part of our career development vision, Colenbrander believes in fostering a passion for accounting among young students. We regularly host learners from various local high schools who wish to find out what a career in accounting is really like. The Grade 11 Work Experience Programme forms part of schools’ Life Orientation syllabus and we couldn’t be happier to offer budding “Bean Counters” an immersive, fun, and informative experience with our team. There is a wide variety of careers under the umbrella of the accounting profession and we believe that, by offering young learners practical insight, we are helping them to make informed career decisions. It is always rewarding to hear how those involved in the programme value their experience and, if any of them decide to pursue a career in the field, we are honoured to have been one of the elements that shaped their paths.
