Student Story – George Biggin

After studying Accounting and Business Management at University for two years I decided to take a year out in industry to widen my experience and knowledge in the accounting sector. As my University did not offer a placement year I chose to suspend my studies and apply to a number of firms to see if they would give me this opportunity. After an interview, I was given an offer from Townends. I started my year’s placement at the Goole office in early June 2017. Three months in I have experienced a wide range of different accounting scenarios and dealt with a variety of business sectors. I started work straight away and this has developed my understanding from the theory that I had learnt at University to now putting it into full practice, whether that be preparing a full set of accounts or submitting Corporation Tax Returns to HMRC. I am currently working in the Corporate department of Townends, which deals with the larger clients. I am looking forward to going out on audit later this year and seeing what’s involved in the process.
