What is your background? How did you get into Accountancy?
I’ve always been pretty good at maths and I really enjoyed it at school.
During a conversation with a friend who was studying AAT, they suggested that I consider pursuing a career in accountancy which influenced my decision to go down this path.
What does your job as Business Services Assistant involve?
My role as a Business Services Assistant involves handling various tasks such as bookkeeping, ensuring the punctual completion and submission of VAT returns, and preparing Management Accounts.
What does a typical working day look like for you?
I live in Wittering so I drive to work every morning.
I kick off my day in the office by tackling emails and jotting down top priorities, like getting those VAT returns or management accounts sorted.
By around half past 10, I always try to squeeze in a Belvita break!
The rest of my day? It’s usually a delightful mix of conquering VAT returns and diving into monthly bookkeeping tasks.
What sort of challenges do you face?
Occasionally it can be a challenge when clients play hide-and-seek with the paperwork we need :-), but other than that we have a great team in Business Services who all help each other to resolve any challenges or queries that may come up.
