Heneesha joined our Perth office as an Associate Consultant in March 2020 after finishing a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance Hons.), at University of Western Australia.
Why did you choose consulting? And why at Bain?
Consulting provides new graduates with the opportunity to work with diverse teams on a variety of interesting and challenging problems for the most high-profile and influential companies. The accelerated learning environment, the laughs, the enduring friendships and generous mentors have made for a memorable and incredible start to my career.
I chose Bain because the culture is unparalleled. There is a concerted effort made to ensure every individual is valued and supported in their own career journey. The strong apprenticeship support model has enabled me to learn deeply, share knowledge and gain new skills and perspectives.
