James Blondel

Qualified Accountant

My experience

After graduating with a First Class BSc (Hons) in Physics with Astrophysics, I decided to turn my attention to Accountancy in the form of the ACA qualification. The ACA qualification (and thus a career in Accountancy) will combine the numerical and analytical skills refined through my degree, with the dynamic environment which a career in Accountancy provides.

Describe what you do at Whitley Stimpson

I am a Trainee Accountant carrying out work on accounts and tax returns for a variety of businesses and individuals, alongside studying towards the ACA qualification.
