So far in our series of profiles we've met staff members from Axminister, Honiton, Langport and Exeter. This month we travel to our Tiverton office to catch up with Louisa....
What is your role within our firm?
I am AAT qualified and looking to do further training in the future. My day to day work includes accounts preparation for sole traders, partnerships and companies along with preparing quarterly VAT returns. I also work on all the payroll and auto-enrolment clients in Tiverton, the auto-enrolment part has definitely been a learning experience!
How long have you been working here?
I started with David M Jenkins & co in September 2013 and have been with Thomas Westcott since the takeover last July. I started straight after I completed my A levels, as the university approach didn’t appeal to me at the time.
What do you like about working in the Tiverton office?
The Tiverton office has a great relaxed atmosphere and everybody gets along, which makes it a nice place to be. I have great work colleagues and receive so much support from my managers which really helps with my progression. I also get given lots of opportunities to further my learning, which is great!
What do you do outside of work?
I have recently started learning sign language, it’s a really good skill to have. I also go to the gym as I no longer play netball, so needed an alternative to keep fit. I love socialising with my friends and family, so my weekends tend to revolve around that.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 items would you take with you?
A boat, music and Nutella (essential)
Do you have any hidden talents?
I wouldn’t say I have any hidden talents as such.. I can bake – if that counts?
What do you like most about working at TW?
Thomas Westcott is much bigger than our previous employer and offers a lot more courses and training facilities which is really handy. I enjoy the variety of work the firm provides - I’m always increasing my knowledge and learning something new practically every day. The firm offers great future career progression opportunities, which is very motivating.
