I joined Ellacotts Business and Tax Services Department in July 2018 as an AAT trainee with no previous accounting qualifications. My typical day comprises preparing accounts for small companies and sole traders. I love the variety of client accounts I come into contact with as it makes every day different and I never get bored.
Since day one with Ellacotts I have learnt new things on a daily basis; with the assistance of my workplace mentor Matt. One of the best aspects of the firm is the ability for staff to learn and work in practice simultaneously; gaining vital work experience and knowledge at the same time is something that I think will greatly enhance my career within the firm.
Prior to joining Ellacotts, I worked as an accounts assistant at a company in my hometown of Brackley, however, due to a change in circumstances they were not able to offer me any training or progression, which led me to find Ellacotts, which was perfect.
Outside of work I love football and am a big Aston Villa fan. I also play football for a local team twice a week, which is great for keeping fit! Other than that I love all kinds of movies and even occasionally try my hand at cooking.
