Student Corner: Jacob Harrison-Rose

I joined Townends as a Trainee Accountant at the Goole office in September 2018, after completing my A Levels at NEW College Pontefract. Before I joined Townends, I had a place at university lined up for the following year, however after speaking to people here and getting an idea of what a career within the business would be like, I decided that the opportunity offered to me suited me better and was something that I would prefer to do.
Although I had no prior experience in accountancy before I joined Townends, I was given the chance to join the business within the Accounts department and be put on the training programme, where I am currently studying the AAT Qualification, allowing me to back up the knowledge learnt through studying with my tasks day to day within the office. Despite being new to accountancy, I have already been given many tasks which I have not done before, such as accounts preparation and tax returns – meaning I have already learnt a vast amount of new information within the short time I have been here!
I look forward to continuing my studies and completing the AAT qualification, as well as gaining further experience and knowledge within Townends in the future.
