I joined Anderson Barrowcliff in September 2018 as a Trainee Accountant, working in our outsourcing department. Prior to joining the firm, I worked as a Retail Manager for over 10 years, but I decided I wanted to progress into a new career and started studying AAT in February 2018. With the support of the company I have recently gained a Level 3 Distinction and have now gone on to study Level 4.
My time with the company has been very enjoyable. The constant variety of work, along with a diverse range of clients means I’m always learning and there’s never a dull moment. My favourite aspect of the job is helping clients with their needs and the gratitude you receive for going the extra mile is extremely rewarding. It was a huge step changing career, but even after my short time here I feel it’s the best one I ever made.
My spare time is mostly spent with my two young children feeding the ducks at the park and going to soft play. I also like to play 5 a side football, but to the dismay of my colleagues, my favourite team is Newcastle United and I’ve been told to hide my calendar behind my computer at all times.
