I joined Ellacotts in July 2017 as a trainee in the Tax and Wealth Planning department after completing my A-Levels in ICT, Psychology and Law.
A typical day for me would involve preparing personal tax returns for a wide variety of individuals, sole traders and directors, logging and distributing new work that comes in from clients and finally, liaising with HM Revenue & Customs on behalf of our clients.
At Ellacotts they offer a trainee-mentoring programme, which has benefitted me immensely. It has opened up a variety of opportunities for me and offered a platform to gain my qualification whilst at the same time, build up my knowledge and experience in Tax. This is extremely helpful as I had no prior tax knowledge before joining Ellacotts, but I am fortunate enough to be given excellent support from my mentor which has allowed me to pick things up as quickly as possible.
Away from the office, I enjoy playing football in a local 6 a side league and socialising with friends and family. If I’m not doing those, you would find me planning for my next holiday whether it be a city break in Europe or a longer exotic break in the sun.
