What attracted you to PKF Littlejohn?

From the moment I stepped inside the offices in Canary Wharf, I knew I wanted to work there. I felt a good vibe straight away as everyone was happy and smiling, I instantly felt welcome and settled just from walking around the offices which made my decision super easy! I wanted to join a firm where there would be other young trainees like me, so that I could have support studying for my qualification as well as benefitting from meeting new people.

What was the application process like?

I came across PKF Littlejohn through a recruiter, applied and got an interview. I then had a HR meeting, a small test and a 1.5 hour interview and then found out I got the job the next day. It was nice and quick, and the early careers team were super friendly, helpful and responsive!

What are your main duties?

I lead audits in a range of industries from planning to completion, and every day is different which I really like!

What would you like to achieve in the future?

I have been at the firm for three and a half years and I have progressed during that time. Progression pathways have been clear since joining as every year you move up to the next level. This gives you motivation when going into your exams, and having this transparency around progression is very much valued. My goal is to work my way up from Assistant Manager to Partner one day.

Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to enter the profession?

I’d say just go for it! For me it was a great decision because I have learnt so much along the way as well as having invaluable training from PKF Littlejohn, whilst studying for ACA. PKF Littlejohn have been so supportive with my qualification and it was worth the move from a small town to where I am now
