Here's what our employees think

Azam Aziz

Assistant Audit Manager

I joined Gerald Edelman as a graduate trainee five years ago and I cannot thank my colleagues enough who were incredibly supportive in helping me fulfil my training needs. As a result, in a short space of time I was promoted within the audit department from a junior to senior, and now manager. I have been encouraged throughout my time at Gerald Edelman and believe there is always space for those who have the drive to learn.

Carl Lundberg

Carl Lundberg LLP is a Partner in Gerald Edelman and Gerald Edelman Deal Advisory

I started my career at Gerald Edelman as a trainee in the audit department. However, after qualifying, I decided to gain some experience within a Big Four firm. I learnt a lot from my move, but I decided that my ultimate goal was to become a Partner and I wanted to do this at a mid-tier firm, for various reasons. I had kept in touch with lots of people at Gerald Edelman and was given the opportunity to return and work my way up to Partner. The great thing about Gerald Edelman is that they give you the space to grow and always support you in your career, whatever you decide. I greatly appreciate the opportunities I have been given and I’m excited for the future of my career here.
