Annabel’s story

My career Journey so far…

I started an AAT apprenticeship in 2014 with my previous employer and finished off my AAT qualification with Shipleys when I joined the firm in 2017.

Once I’d completed that qualification, I decided to pursue the ACA qualification and in 2021 was delighted to qualify as a Chartered Accountant.

Since qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, I have progressed in my audit roles at Shipleys LLP. This has included Audit and Accounts Supervisor and, more recently, I was promoted to Assistant Audit Manager.

What I enjoy about Shipleys LLP

I really enjoy working within a team environment and learning from other colleagues.

The firm’s culture is fun and flexible, yet Shipleys also provides clear expectations for progression and the training needed for success.

Everyone is willing to assist one another, and any concerns you have are dealt with.

My tips for Potential recruits

Never be afraid to ask for help and assistance along the way. Shipleys’ colleagues are hugely supportive and never regard a question as silly! They are always ready to answer any queries you have, as you learn and develop in your role.
