Grad Mentor

Alisdair Barr is the Founder and Managing Director of Grad Mentor whose sole purpose is to raise awareness of Accounting and Financial Planning in small to medium firms as an exciting and rewarding career path to ensure the future of the profession. Grad Mentor only works with new entrants to the profession and in the process interviews hundreds of university graduates a year. Most of the graduates end up working in small to medium Accounting and Financial Planning and Accounting businesses so through this process and experience many lessons have been learnt.

This has all ended up in the development of a digital platform called Striver which will support Australian business even further with the attraction, engagement and retention of graduate talent.
