"Canaccord has been of great support to me both professionally and personally over the past 8 years. Beginning with the arrival of my daughter Charli back in 2017, I was afforded parental leave for up to a year while settling in as a new mother. In mid-2019 I chose to pursue an opportunity in the commercial property sector however realised very quickly that it was not the right fit for me. Canaccord was very kind to offer me my former position and I was grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this organisation once again. Career development is another area of importance to me and this year I was presented with an opportunity to further my career by joining Canaccord’s Finance team as an Assistant Accountant. I am very appreciative of this opportunity for development and to the organisation for supporting me both professionally and personally."

"Canaccord has been such an incredible support to me on both a personal and professional level. In my professional career, I started at the company as a graduate where I have been supported and encouraged by colleagues and the leadership team having worked my way up to a management position, with my hard work being recognised along the way. Personally, falling pregnant with my first child at a pivotal point in my career was a bit daunting however, my news was received with immense support and encouragement by my Manager who was able to share her own stories of balancing a very successful career with motherhood which really put my mind at ease. More importantly, the action taken by the Company with regards to its generous parental leave policy gave me precious time with my baby, accompanied by the ability to ease back in to work when I was ready with part time and working from home options available was such a big help."
