I’m on a twelve month placement as a trainee accountant in the Pontefract office taking a year out of my accounting and finance degree at Leeds Beckett to gain some hands on experience, the twelve month placement is optional but I decided to find a placement role as I believe work experience will give me an insight of what a career in accounting can be like.

I decided to join Townends, as when I started my studies I clicked with financial accounting and wanted to get the experience in an accountants practice rather than in industry and this is the career path I am stepping towards.

In the three months I have been here I have done various jobs, from preparing accounts for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies and preparing CT600 tax returns and also had the opportunity to go on training courses. I am enjoying my time at Townends and I am looking forward to the rest of the year.
