Derby accountancy and business advisors Vibrant welcome apprentice Katie to the team

An award-winning Derby accountancy and business advice company has welcomed its ninth new member as it continues to go from strength to strength.

Vibrant Accountancy, based on Duffield Road, have appointed 24-year-old Katie Walton to their growing team.

Katie, from Burton, has an advanced diploma in accounting and is studying for her professional diploma with city-based EMA Training.

She said:

“I am absolutely delighted to have joined Vibrant Accountancy and my first few weeks in the job have flown by.

“I have worked for various organisations helping ensure that their internal finances run smoothly – more recently I worked for an IT company – and I’m really enjoying the variety here at Vibrant.”

Katie joins Vibrant on an apprenticeship scheme, spending one day a week at EMA Training. Based in Siddals Road, Derby, the company provides apprenticeship programmes in HR Support, Software Development and Accounting.

She is on a 15-month course, where she will learn all core aspects of accountancy, including business awareness, ethical standards, regulations and compliance and systems and processes.

“I like the fact that, with the apprenticeship, I’m learning on the job,” said Katie, “working with Vibrant gives me the experience and if there is a particular module with which I need a little extra support, then the Vibrant team are here to help.

“They have the experience and are only too willing to help.”

Co-founder Bev Wakefield is delighted to welcome Katie on board. She said:

“Vibrant is a fast-growing business and Katie joins us at an exciting time of growth.

“Our values and ethos are now firmly embedded into the company – we want to be one step ahead of our clients and to empower them, supplementing core services with mentoring, coaching and general business support as part of a holistic approach.

“We want Vibrant Accountancy to boost the local economy after what has been such a difficult couple of years, recruiting staff from the region who want to work with us and who we can train and help blossom.

“Katie fits the brief perfectly; it is good to be able to bring new talent into the company and we are looking forward to watching her grow with Vibrant.”
