I was delighted to be offered a position with Newby Castleman having gone through the application stage. I started studying towards my ACA qualification shortly after starting in September 2011. Combining work with studying for exams and socialising is tough, but once you establish a routine it becomes a lot easier. The firm is very supportive of your studies and provides plenty of practical experience. Newby Castleman is a great place to train.
In the time I have been here I have enjoyed a wide variety of experience. I have prepared accounts and undertaken audits for a variety of charities and companies. I have now been working at Newby Castleman for 5½ years. I have progressed through the ranks to the position of audit supervisor, having qualified as a chartered accountant in December 2014.
Socialising contributes significantly to the friendly atmosphere of the firm. A wide variety of events are organised on a regular basis; including partners’ drinks every month, curry nights, sporting activities, as well as the Christmas do!
I feel very fortunate to be able to work for a firm which is so welcoming and supportive.
