Name: Amjad Nazeer Position: Payroll Accountant Time in Role: Two years
Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got to Fetch In 2020 I moved to Melbourne from Western Australia, and that's when I joined Fetch. I'm a qualified accountant with 10 years of post-qualified experience within the Health, Oil, Gas and Construction sector.
What’s your favourite thing about working at Fetch? My favourite aspect of working at Fetch is the company’s culture and the focus that is put into how employees are treated. Having worked for a variety of employers, being treated well by a company regardless of job title is important.
What’s one thing you wish people knew about accounting? A big tax refund is not necessarily a good thing. You paid more in income taxes than was necessary by law. You gave the ATO an interest-free loan.
#1 career highlight to date? Four years of managing a finance department as well as being responsible for company-wide payroll and budgeting.
Your life mantra is... "Don't forget that great achievements require time and patience"

If you were on death row, what would be your last meal? Salmon, a baked potato with sour cream. I would also want some fried chicken with a big ice-cream sundae for dessert.
