HandelsFinance - a kick start for student-run consultancy company

News: Sep 06, 2017

Companies such as HandelsConsulting, HandelsMarketing and Handelsjuristerna have been around for many years. Now it is time for HandelsFinance – a student-run consultancy company that offers the market value-for-money services and gives the students practical experience.

The company has only been active for a short time, but the organisation has already been staffed and a few commissions have been received.

“We have received several book keeping and accountancy tasks, sustainability accounts in particular. There has been a change in regulations that we believe will result in a lot of work in the future,” says Selma Harki, CEO of Handels Finance.

Motivated students nearing the end of their studies

A number of students have been recruited through a rigorous process. The students will set aside around ten hours per week for HandelsFinance.

“As a rule, we employ students on master’s programmes, or in the third year of their bachelor’s degree, often specialising in accounting. And they are, of course, motivated people who want to learn and develop. We intend to employ more people soon, as demand has been so high,” says Antor Ullah who is Vice CEO at the company.

Ideally tasks within finance

The organisation has two areas: accounting and finance. So far, the majority of tasks have been within accounting.

“I would really like to see some work within corporate finance too. Perhaps we might not be able to conduct entire projects here, but we can contribute to work by providing investment calculations or cash flow analyses for example,” says Selma Harki.

Ambitious growth targets

Company management occupy their roles for one year. Then it is time for new students to explore the roles.

“We will have 20 employees, and a steady, high workload before the end of the year. It is ambitious, but not impossible. We can do it,” concludes the management duo Selma Harki and Antor Ullah.
