Tell us a bit about your role at Dyke Yaxley and your pathway to what you are doing now:

I started at Dyke Yaxley in 2015 as an Accounts/Audits Clerk in the Accounts Department where I drafted clients’ accounts, carried out booking-in and occasionally assisted on audits while at the same time continuing with my AAT Studies at college. In early 2016 I was offered the opportunity to move across to the Accounting Solutions Department where I am now working, where I no longer draft accounts but I do bookkeeping for clients, prepare and submit VAT Returns and prepare management accounts.

 

What was your route into working at Dyke Yaxley?

While working at Shrewsbury College in the Finance Department, My AAT Teacher at the time made me aware of some vacancies at Dyke Yaxley which I instantly applied for.

 

What training programmes have you been involved with at Dyke Yaxley?

I am currently finishing my last year of AAT at Shrewsbury College which DY have fully supported me with.

 

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I love the variety of work in the AS Department! My favorite part about my job would probably be the contact that I have with the clients, being in the AS Department and having our own portfolios of client’s means that we get to know our clients and are the first point of contact which is great because they are always so friendly.

 

What are your aspirations for your future career?

My aspirations are to finish the final level of AAT, and then move on to the bigger exams to become a fully qualified accountant.

 

And what do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Cycling, watching horror films and eating at new places.
