I have been working as a tax trainee at Shipleys Godalming Office for just over a month now, and what a month it has been. Having graduated in History it was certainly a daunting prospect entering work at an accountancy firm but everyone here has been welcoming and made me feel right at home.
It started with an induction which was a nice chance to say hello to everyone and good way to get to know the place. I was given work to get on with from the get go which was super helpful in furthering my understanding of the day to day workings of the tax department here. The fact that they are supporting my training and qualifications in order to become a Chartered Tax Adviser is also an amazing opportunity. Welcome drinks came at the end of my first week which was a great opportunity to meet everyone in a relaxed environment and good way to welcome me to the firm.
People were quick to invite me to the various activities that go on around here such as the annual Shipleys golf day which is certain to be a good laugh as well as two other drinks events for other members of staff. It definitely good to be a part of such a social group of people. I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my work here and I look forward to whatever is coming my way over the rest of the year!
Will be sure to post again soon with some more updates! Until next time.
