Meet Annie

Finance apprentice

Annie

Annie took her first steps towards a career in accountancy with an apprenticeship in our Finance team. She describes what it’s been like so far:

“I’m based at The Grange in Southgate, London. I’m currently on the 18 Month AAT Level 3 Apprenticeship Program where I’ve worked with many teams in the Finance department.

“So far I’ve worked with the Accounts Payable (AP) Team and I’m currently in Accounts Receivables. In AP I used to process invoices as well as shadow tasks done by each AP team member.

“Coming straight from college and going into a working environment was quite daunting at first. However, from day one I felt very welcomed by staff as they were very kind and supportive. My job makes me feel very proud because I’ve accomplished many milestones and learnt new things every day.

“It can be hard studying and working at the same time, but my work colleagues have been very supportive in the way that they always have motivated me to do well. One great thing that makes it a good place to work here is the diversity of the roles – there are many good opportunities here.”
