"In 2010 I started my training experience with Townends after obtaining my degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of the West of England.

I began by studying towards the AAT qualification, whilst beginning to work on sole trader/partnership and small limited company accounts together with preparing VAT Returns for a variety of clients. This gave me a good grounding in the basic fundamentals of accountancy.

After completing this I went on to study for the ACA qualification and have now recently qualified. During this time my work varied more as I got involved in auditing, visiting clients and working on larger limited companies. Whilst this was challenging it helped enhance my skills and was key in progressing with my studies.

The support from my colleagues at Townends has been invaluable and it is a friendly work place, also providing opportunities for social activities and networking to add a fun element to the work environment.

I look forward to many more enjoyable years ahead at Townends
