I joined Whitley Stimpson straight from college in 2017 and have enjoyed it so much that I’m still here! When I left college, I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do and Whitley Stimpson gave me an opportunity to explore what an accountancy practice does, and really get to understand how it works. I’ve now progressed onto being a trainee accountant and I’m looking forward to qualifying next year.
Describe what you do at Whitley Stimpson
As a trainee accountant I get involved in a wide variety of interesting things. As well as accounting I have experience in tax, auditing, book-keeping, business planning, IT solutions as well as ad hoc projects. I also get involved in client management which gives me plenty of customer contact where I can make use of my people skills.
Why Whitley Stimpson?
Whitley Stimpson gave me the opportunity to qualify as a chartered accountant through their apprenticeship scheme. I’m fortunate to have been given the chance to embark on a career that I have turned out to like so much. They have also given me a rewarding career path with plenty of responsibility and client interaction. The firm are a close-knit family who treat everyone well and encourage you to build relationships.
What matters to you?
Helping my clients as much as possible – it’s not just about the numbers it’s about the people as well. It’s important to take the time to listen and understand what’s needed. If I can’t deal with something myself, I always know that there is someone in the firm that can. The quality of the work and advice that we give is also important to me. I’m proud to work for Whitley Stimpson.
