Bookkeeper/Accountant (Current Employee) – Chelmsford – 8 May 2018
Great for someone breaking into accountancy as the learning curve is very steep so you can gain a lot of experience quickly. The downside is that you are expected to hit the ground running and with the office being so busy, there is no opportunity for on the job training, you literally are flying by the seat of your pants!

Apprentice Accountant (Current Employee) – London – 2 March 2016
A typical day at work involved data entry and an odd VAT return here and there. There was no type of training offered, although my employer was friendly i just felt like a paper pusher. There were no possible advancements available in the firm so i didn't feel like i was going anywhere with my career. After the first few months i was no longer being exposed to anything new.
