Kennas is a vibrant mix of long time staff members and younger staff who have been employed as Kennas has expanded in recent years. Almost a third of staff and partners have worked at Kennas for over 15 years, which is testament to our great working environment. New staff members benefit immensely and have their training fast tracked by learning from highly successful experienced accountants and financial planners.
As a Kennas employee you will be working with some of the most experienced and professional accounting business owners in Queensland. Kennas' partners are often called upon to talk at seminars and conferences held throughout Central Queensland. The Kennas partners pride themselves on being very approachable and always having an open door policy when it comes to helping staff.
Kennas offers wide ranging, flexible working conditions, and a focus on family life (or for the younger staff, their social life). We pride ourselves on supporting a strong life/work balance (notice how life comes first), while maintaining the professional, proactive, high quality service levels we are known for throughout Central Queensland. Our premises in both Rockhampton and Yeppoon are modern, open, and friendly work environments, where we operate highly sophisticated computer systems which are maintained by our in-house network administration team.
We endeavour to provide a friendly and secure work environment, in which all members of the firm can develop and achieve their personal and professional goals. Our success in this area can be seen by the large number of partners and professional staff who have been with Kennas for the majority of their working lives. This has helped the firm retain the highest skilled and experienced team of professional accountants and financial planners available. Because we are the largest advisory firm in Central Queensland, we can also offer a strong career path to staff. This may range from being a senior accountant or planner, to being a manager working with your own small team, or maybe even becoming one of the business owners of Kennas.
Being a Chartered Accounting firm, we strongly support staff who decide to venture down the path of becoming a Chartered Accountant (CA), the highest accounting qualification in Australia. It always helps as well to be studying with someone you know, and at Kennas we regularly have staff undertaking the CA program, so chances are you won't be alone on your journey to becoming a CA. We are also a FPA Professional Practice, as granted by the Financial Planning Association of Australia and we encourage our Financial Planners to achieve their Certified Financial Planning (CFP) status, which is the highest in the financial planning field. Our support includes paid study leave, purchase of study material, and reimbursement of module costs upon passing of each exam.
There are many job opportunities available at Kennas for the right people with the right attitude. You will need to not only have very good technical skills, but be prepared to work hard as part of a team of people providing the highest quality professional services. Communicating well with both your fellow workers and especially with clients, is an essential part of being a highly successful accountant or financial planner.
