Within 9 months, I’ve been quickly exposed to a variety of work, such as film, funds and accounts prep. I’ve also covered a few miles around the UK as well, for on-site client work and attending stocktakes. I went to Scotland for the first time for a stock take, Edinburgh specifically and I was lucky enough to meet a fantastically knowledgeable taxi driver who drove me around for the day and acted as my very own tour guide!
Shipley’s has a good mix of clients, so one week you might be on accounts prep and the following week on an on-site audit for a film client for example, working for different managers and to different time scales depending on the size of the client. So far, I can say I’ve definitely had a good breadth of experience in accounts prep and audit.
As I mentioned before, I had been at college quite a bit over the last few months preparing for 3 professional stage exams which I’ve now sat! Gosh…they came round so quick from when I started at Shipley’s in January, where’s all the time gone?!
