Tax Advisory

Athanasios Drosakis

Associate


Joined September 2020

This role gives you the opportunity to be exposed to different areas of tax and work with a range of clients on different projects. Furthermore, the firm supports you in gaining two highly regarded qualifications (ACA/CTA).

The feedback and the guidance you receive as a graduate is amazing, as all the senior management are extremely friendly and genuinely wants to help you develop as a professional. The team is very diverse and engaging. Even though I joined remotely, I have always felt supported and part of the team.

There are social events held every month, which gives a great opportunity to have some fun. As a member of the social committee, I have even co-hosted one of them. Also, every graduate is encouraged to get involved in many charity initiatives that the firm actively promotes.
My time at FTI Consulting has exceeded my expectations by far, and I look forward to continuing getting more exposure at work and simultaneously progressing with my qualifications.

I am really enjoying my role at FTI Consulting, particularly the work I have been involved within the Research and Development (R&D) team. FTI Consulting has a diverse client base and learning about each of their R&D projects has been extremely interesting.

My favourite aspect of the tax team at FTI Consulting is the culture, which allows for a close-knit feel and the opportunity for ample client interaction and independent responsibility with projects.
Everybody in the tax team has been so welcoming. They are very encouraging of questions and always make time to explain specific concepts.

Joined September 2019

I joined FTI Consulting’s Tax Advisory practice because I wanted to gain experience in a variety of roles within a senior-led team while studying towards two professional qualifications (ACA/CTA).

Since joining FTI Consulting, I have had the opportunity to work across several different teams within the tax practice. I have found all of them to be varied and supportive of the balance between working and training towards my career.

In addition to the professional qualifications, there are regular training specifically directed at the graduate level to support my professional development.

This role is challenging but at the same time, provides endless opportunities to develop my career. While studying for two prestigious qualifications, I have been involved in a wide range of projects and directly engaged with clients.

The senior team members are extremely approachable and willing to listen to our suggestions. I always feel comfortable to share my ideas and thoughts in meetings.

FTI Consulting offers a well-structured graduate program which has assisted me in achieving my full potential.

My time at FTI Consulting has been exciting. I particularly enjoy team socials at the local bars and nice restaurants every other week.

Associate


Joined September 2019

I joined FTI Consulting as a graduate in their EMEA Tax Advisory team in September 2019. One of the best things I love about working at FTI Consulting is the training and support. Over a short period of time, I have managed to expand my knowledge by learning from my colleagues who provide time and I have always been able to reach out to them for guidance and questions.

The graduate programme has also enabled me to gain exposure to a broad range of client projects whilst studying towards the ACA and CTA qualifications.

Being a part of a collaborative and inclusive team with supportive peers and team leaders is also one of the most enjoyable parts of working here. There are always a variety of social events to attend within the team as well as in the firm. The Corporate Finance Conference in Portugal was definitely one of the highlights of my first year here.

Joined January 2019

Since joining FTI Consulting in January 2019, I have been exposed to a wide variety of tax work. You are able to get involved in all aspects of the work, not just the work that you would typically associate with a graduate.

Within a relatively short amount of time, you are encouraged to get involved in client calls and start taking charge of some aspects of the job. Due to the variety of the work undertaken within the tax team, you get a good understanding of corporation tax as a whole, from compliance, through to more specific areas such as R&D and capital allowances. The team also focuses on real estate tax, providing ample opportunity to grasp the importance of tax in a commercial deal. By experiencing the various tax areas, alongside studying for the ACA/CTA joint qualification, I feel my knowledge has grown rapidly.

The team is very friendly and welcoming from the start. No matter how senior, everyone is always happy to help and answer any questions you may have. A highlight is definitely the Corporate Finance Summer Conference where we were taken to Portugal for a weekend.

FTI Consulting is a unique company in that it offers so many different services. Within the tax team, you get to interact and work alongside everyone, including the Partners, resulting in more challenging and interesting work.

Joined January 2019

In 2018 FTI gave me the amazing opportunity of joining the transfer pricing team, offering me a graduate training contract. I am now part of FTI’s tax team where I work closely with senior management which facilitates my progress and development. Within a very short time I was encouraged to get involved in client calls and project management. I believe FTI is a unique company where graduates have the opportunity to develop skills beyond their level and get involved in challenging and interesting work.

I fully recommend FTI to anyone looking for a place where skills and knowledge are appreciated and rewarded.

Joined January 2019

The role is extremely diverse and I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects and clients while training towards my professional qualification (ACA/CTA). This has allowed me to develop my knowledge and understanding tax and business finance while, at the same time, gaining two highly respected qualifications.

The team is amazingly supportive with all the senior management keen to help and devote their time as much as possible to accelerate my development.
We also enjoy several social events, both pre and post COVID-19, with the team putting in a lot of effort to ensure that we felt supported.

My time at FTI Consulting to date has been exciting, insightful and stimulating and I’m confident that this will continue.
