Degree: Emma started her training contract after A-Levels
Overall I have enjoyed my 2 years at UHY so far and am looking forward to my progression over the future and the experience that I will gain in the upcoming years.
What made you choose UHY Hacker Young?
UHY was recommended to me by my A-level accountancy teacher as she knew I was looking to go into work straight after my A-levels rather than go to university to study for a degree. I felt I was ready for a different challenge and have found that by starting work with a training contract that this would provide the change for me.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
I would say the most challenging aspect of my job is being able to balance the work and study commitments at the same time. It is very tiring studying after a long day at work... However hopefully it will be worth all the hard work in the end by gaining the sought after ACA qualification!
What do you think makes a good auditor or accountant?
I think the skills that make a good auditor/accountant are having vast technical knowledge and experience but also being able to communicate well with other colleagues and clients to maintain a good relationship with other members of staff and ensuring clients stay loyal to UHY. The UHY offices are very team orientated and so there is always someone who you can ask for help and advice, this helps with our understanding and progression in the workplace.
