I joined Ellacotts as a Trainee Accountant in the Agriculture and Property department in April 2020. Joining remotely has been a unique challenge but Ellacotts and the team could not have done more to welcome me to the team.
Prior to starting with Ellacotts, I was working as a Finance Assistant for a small automotive charity. Whilst there, I studied and completed the AAT qualification. Moving from industry into practice has been a learning curve but using my AAT knowledge plus the excellent ‘buddy’ scheme that Ellacotts offer, I have been able to navigate this path well.
Day-to-day, I am preparing accounts for a variety of clients – from drafting them for review through to finalising them after approval. You have to adapt your approach to suit the client which means no two days are the same. I feel a real sense of achievement once the clients receive them and I feel that I have played a small part in enabling their success. As my time at Ellacotts progresses, I hope to continue studying and perform a variety of tasks within my role.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends including eating out and going to the cinema. I also enjoy going to the theatre – mainly to see musicals – and walking my Jack Russell, Lily.
