Secondment Stories

Leakena's Secondment Story

There were many reasons that I decided to take up a secondment posting at Malaysia. It is a great opportunity to work and live overseas, a chance to travel during the weekends as well as to make international friends. When an opportunity for a secondment to our Malaysia office at Kuala Lumpur opened up, I took the leap immediately. This turned out to be one of my best decisions and most exciting experiences of my career.

The secondment opened up my eyes to an entirely new world, environment, and culture. The move to Baker Tilly Malaysia provided a unique opportunity to learn about different working practices. It helps me to demonstrate my flexibility, adaptability and sharpen my soft skills in dealing with clients, colleagues and superiors. It is a fantastic way to meet people in various races and background that provides me with challenges, both in my social and work life for a period of 6 months here.

This secondment opportunity pushed me out of my comfort zone and tested my knowledge and skills as an employee. These are valuable lessons that I can take-home when I return to Cambodia.

I would like to thank Baker Tilly Cambodia and Baker Tilly Malaysia for such valuable opportunity and rewarding experience.
