Why accountancy?

There has always been a fear that computers would eventually dominate the world and replace the average human’s job but that’s where it has become even more apparent that the core function of an accountant is indispensable. Building interpersonal relationships with clients to explain all the fancy formulas, reports and analyse the data remains to paramount to understand the flows of money in business - which is as relevant as ever.

In fact, technological advances have helped to streamline this process and create innovative ways of recording and inputting data such as artificial intelligence and data analytics showing how adaptable the profession really is. It really can be fast paced, ever changing and thought-provoking.

I am encouraged to learn and try new things but if it doesn’t work out, I am supported to learn lessons, get back up and try again. And the small things do not go amiss such as the free fresh fruit, surprise care packages, virtual wellbeing sessions and social events. I also love the people I work with; my colleagues are awesome, talented, hilarious, and helpful. Because of this we have a laugh every single day.

Its intriguing to dissect data and reach conclusions based on evidence. My role also means I can work with and range of different clients and by working through their accounts I am able to get a broad insight into how different businesses operate. The work I do can also help shape and grow businesses for the future as they look for advice about how to build and support future growth.

I have been given some great opportunities and have taken on loads of new challenges. This has boosted my confidence.
