Budding accountants start their career at Notts firm

THREE university graduates have chosen to start their accountancy careers at UHY Hacker Young’s Nottingham office.

Joshua Dodson and Lewis Wilson have joined the leading accountancy firm as student chartered accountants, while Ben Bates is the company’s newest Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) tax assistant.

Both Lewis and Joshua will be studying for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales Chartered Accountant ACA qualification while working at UHY.

Lewis, 21, who graduated with a degree in economics from the University of Nottingham, said:

“UHY is an accountancy firm that is respected globally as a world leader in its industry, while simultaneously maintaining a sense of community and friendliness – something which is unusual for such a large company.

“As well as studying for the ACA qualification, I hope to gain a wealth of first-hand experience in accountancy, preparing me for my future career in the industry. Due to UHY’s heavyweight status, I don’t believe there is a better place to learn and train to be an accountant.”

Joshua, 22, who studied an integrated masters in mathematics at the University of York before joining UHY, added:

“I wanted to join a reputable firm like UHY as I could see great early development here, along with the ability to engage with a wide range of clients and staff. I’ll be bringing my enthusiasm and attitude to succeed to my new role.”

Ben worked as a trainee tax accountant at Brealey Foster & Co, in Leicestershire, while studying for his degree in accounting and finance at Sheffield Hallam University.

The 23-year-old said:

“Working for UHY is a great opportunity to be part of a company that is going to teach me the best practices and provide me with the opportunity to learn and have a long successful carer in taxation. As UHY is one of the UK’s top 15 accountancy firms, I will have the opportunity to work with a large variety of clients, giving me more exposure to a wide range of tax issues.”

Simon Browning, partner in charge of the Nottingham office at UHY, said:

“We’re delighted that Joshua, Lewis and Ben have chosen UHY to start their careers. We are looking forward to seeing their skills develop while they flourish in their new roles and the industry.”
