Dreaming of working in a top-tier sports team? Financial Controller Manuel Vlandis CA shoulders that responsibility - keeping a keen eye at the bottom line of the NRL Sydney Roosters. He manages the salaries and provides financial reporting, but also enjoys spending most of his days around the players when he has to go to the footy every weekend for work.
Vlandis's role also involves a lot of relationship management - making sure the right people, such as sponsors, players and members, all feel welcome - and keep paying and playing for the club!
"For me, getting the qualification was extremely important. I think the discipline you learn by working in a chartered accounting practice is fantastic, and it sets you up. I still use those disciplines today." - Manuel Vlandis CA.
