I joined Sibbalds in October 2018 as part of the book keeping and accounts preparation department as a trainee accountant where I will work together with the teams to complete their targets whilst studying towards my ACCA.
Qualifications and experience
After leaving St Benedict’s Catholic Sixth form I proceeded to pursue a career in Accountancy. I originally trained in the AAT at a firm in Ripley where I worked as an Accounts Trainee dealing with the start to finish accounts process. It was at this point I decided to attend Liverpool John Moores University to attain a BA (Hons) degree in Accountancy and Finance.
After graduating, I worked at a local Derby Accountancy practice as a Business Services Accountant where I would deal with all aspects of accounts, book keeping, business tax and personal tax.
I have joined Sibbalds with the intention of obtaining my AAT qualification and then go on to finish my training with the ACCA to become a Certified Chartered Accountant.
What I like about my role
I enjoy working with the strong team of professionals here at Sibbalds and the drive to provide the best service possible to its clients. I aim to continue to work closely with the team and help drive the vision Sibbalds has for the firm.
Things I enjoy outside Sibbalds
I like to keep fit and go to the gym regularly and I am currently looking into joining a local basketball team. When I’m not doing this I like to spend my time in the countryside and spending time with my friends and family.
Something you might not know about me
I am quite badly colour blind, getting all colours mixed up as well as not being able to register some colours. When I joined the first practice I was employed at, I mistakenly bought several shirts under the impression they were white…. they were pink.
