We meet Hannah this month, another of our rising stars who has worked through our training programme and recently became a fully qualified Chartered Certified Accountant. She's also not bad with a golf club!

What is your role within Thomas Westcott?

I work in the audit department in our Exeter Office and my portfolio consists of both corporate and charity clients. I also prepare accounts, tax returns, VAT returns and assist with client queries. I am also part of the charity technical team and the FRS102 working party group. 

How long have you been working here?

I joined Thomas Westcott in October 2011 as an AAT Trainee after I completed my A Levels. I originally worked in our Honiton Office and then moved to the Exeter Office when I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant. 

What do you like about working in the Exeter Office?

Exeter is my home city and I chose to stay here and study locally rather than moving away and going to University. The office is in a great central location, perfect for shopping on my lunch break! The Exeter Office has a great team of people and we are committed to providing the best possible service to our clients. 

What do you do outside of work?

Golf is my main hobby, I started playing at the age of 13. I used to play county golf however now I choose to play more socially at a club level. I enjoy travelling and have had lots of holidays to America and I plan to visit more European cities now I have more free time. I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano and now I have completed all of my exams I have been able to start lessons. 

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 items would you take with you?

Kindle (with unlimited books), sun lounger and chocolate!

Do you have any hidden talents?

I don’t think so!

What do you like most about working at TW?

I enjoy all aspects of my role and I frequently work at client’s premises for audit fieldwork which means I could be working in a different location every week! Thomas Westcott provides great training programmes with the opportunity for career progression.
