Andrew Vassallo, Head of Marketing and Business Development at EY Malta, took to social media to celebrate his six-year anniversary of working at the company.
Mr Vassallo joined EY Malta back in 2015 as a Consultant. After two-and-a-half years in said role, he took on the role of Senior Brand, Marketing, Communications and Business Development Executive, only to be promoted to Head of said department just under a year later.
“I’m celebrating six years with EY and three different roles,” Mr Vassallo wrote.
“Lots of memories, mentors, and friends. Countless reports, articles, and events. A great team with Nadia Belkhir, Stefano Mazzoccoli, and way too many others to tag. Thanks all,” he continued.
Before joining EY Malta, Mr Vassallo held the positions of Research Intern and Projects and Administration Officer at The People for Change Foundation.
With operations in over 150 countries, EY seeks to assist its clients through four service lines – assurance, consulting, strategy and transactions, and tax.
Presently, the company employs around 300,000 individuals globally.
At the time of writing, his journey has led to £24,849 (€28,665) being raised for mental health charities.
He remarks that people tend to mistakenly view failure as a ‘setback’ or ‘disappointment’.
University degrees still offer a route into industry, but nowadays, there are different ways of getting a dream job.
