Megan joined Armstrongs in 2019 and continued her apprenticeship journey, achieving success at levels three and four with the support of Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber Training. Megan has established herself as a valuable member of the Armstrongs team, showing a real aptitude for the job, and is now looking forward to developing her career further through professional study on the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
Commenting on becoming a qualified accountant, Megan said: “By following the apprenticeship route instead of going to university, I have received invaluable experience in my chosen profession. I have enjoyed the structured on-the-job training I received from Chamber Training whilst being employed by a prestigious firm such as Armstrongs. The apprenticeship route has enabled me to develop a professional career which I am extremely proud of. I would recommend it to anyone who is unsure about their options after leaving school.”
Sarah Van Ristell, Director at Armstrongs added: “We have an established team of qualified accountants and developing apprentices which creates a talent pipeline. Megan has worked extremely hard to achieve her apprenticeship and we are very proud of her success.
“The Directors at Armstrongs formed a close working relationship with Chamber Training a number of years ago and we have apprentices at various stages of development from level two through to professional study. Our training manager at Chamber Training, Nicky Cheshire, understands our business and how we operate, which means that we are matched with the right people.”
Nicky Cheshire, Training Manager at Chamber Training, added: “It is always a pleasure to see our apprentices achieve their apprenticeships, gain qualifications and succeed in their chosen roles. We would like to wish Megan every success in her future at Armstrongs.”
“An accountancy apprenticeship is an opportunity to attract fresh new talent to the business. So, if you are looking build your team or to upskill your existing staff to a senior accountant, there is no better time to enrol them onto an apprenticeship as well as get them AAT qualified.”
