Hayley Hudson - Partner

I joined Townends in 2008 straight from school. I knew exactly what I wanted to do as a career so chose to start straight away with AAT studies instead of A Levels.
Townends then continued to provide amazing support right through AAT, ATT and ACA. Townends really helped guide me through my studies whilst also giving me priceless opportunities to build business relationships, gain experience on a wide range of clients and be part of a great team.
