Adding value to your business
Welcome to the new style home page. We will feature a different partner and topic each month. If there is anything in particular you would like to see, just let us know, we are always keen to know what you need from us and will endeavour to cover relevant topics of interest.
This month’s feature is by Dawn Martin
Happy New Year!
With the Christmas festivities complete we approach a New Year, hopefully refreshed from the break and ready to tackle and achieve those resolutions!
For a few years now, January has been renowned for the final completion and submission of Tax Returns and settlement of liabilities due, with the deadline of 31 January looming after Christmas. It is always a busy month and the skiers amongst us start their obsession with the European snow forecasts!
At Edmund Carr it is also a time to consider our recruitment requirements for the summer. As Practice Manager I am very involved in the recruitment procedures liaising with Ray Crace, our Staff Partner. Our students form an integral part of our team.
Calling all 2014 Graduates and A Level Students!
What does 2014 have in store for you? Many students now approaching the final phase of their studies will need to look ahead and make plans for their time post examinations.
A New Year and an exciting time ahead – albeit combined with hard work. The Christmas break often provides time for reflection and contemplation regarding a student’s career path and professional future.
Are you a good team player and communicator? Can you follow instructions and apply your own initiative to new assignments? Do you enjoy meeting people from diverse business backgrounds; assisting with financial reporting requirements and helping to expand and achieve new ideas and ventures?
Is Accountancy the Career for you?
At Edmund Carr we are proud to be able to offer our students a wide variety of work experience combined with excellent support and training both in house and at a recommended training institution to achieve their professional qualifications.
Being a medium sized Practice we are able to offer our clients a professional and personal service. As a student you will gain an insight in to a multitude of businesses, learning the financial requirements and responsibilities that need to be adopted in order to run a successful enterprise. Our client base is strong and loyal. Many joined us to celebrate our Diamond Anniversary last year – some having been clients since the early days of 1953!
Whilst a mathematical and business background lays the foundation for many of the professional exams, a good accountant needs to acquire and develop many more skills. A strong work ethic, good communication skills and the ability to adapt and apply knowledge to a variety of situations are key attributes.
Please see our careers section for details of the academic entry requirements and for further information regarding a trainee application. You may find it interesting to read the profiles written by some of our current students.
Ray Crace and I will review and consider all cvs received, with a view to compiling a short list of candidates for interview in March 2014.
I take this opportunity to wish all students every success with their forthcoming examinations and a happy and prosperous 2014. Should you require any further information regarding our recruitment policy or training regime please contact me at DMartin@EdmundCarr.com.
