Seren Thomas

Trainee Accountant

My experience

I graduated from Cardiff University with a First Class BA (Hons) in Japanese and Spanish in July 2020 and started working at Whitley Stimpson in August 2020. Whilst at University I did some part-time holiday work as an accounting/office assistant, worked at a hostel in Barcelona and taught English conversation at a subsidiary of Mazda in Japan.

Describe what you do at Whitley Stimpson

I am a trainee accountant studying towards the ACA qualification. During my time here I have mainly worked on accounts and tax returns with some audit as well.

Why Whitley Stimpson?

Whilst studying at university I did a week’s work experience at Whitley Stimpson during the summer of 2017. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. This gave me a good insight into what it would be like to train here and made me want to apply later on once I could.

What matters to you?

Expanding my skill set and learning new things are very important to me. In my free time I enjoy learning languages, travelling and listening to music.
