“Westcotts have helped me gain experience in accountancy after joining with little knowledge of the industry. Starting off as an AAT trainee the firm were essential in helping me understand the fundamental principles of accounting such as double entry bookkeeping. I have now been with Westcotts 5 years and have progressed with my studies and am now half way through my ACCA exams.

Westcotts have helped support me as I have had a mentor from another office which has helped me look at how we can change the work I do in the firm to help aid my studies, focusing on areas I have upcoming in exams. Another key element of support to my studies is the knowledge & understanding I have gained from my lead partner (VP) whilst in the office.

Fellow work colleagues have also helped & encouraged me through my 5 years. Which has increased my confidence.”
