My role involved processing invoices, preparing payruns many other miscellaneous tasks to help out the department. It involved communicating with the whole department, giving me exposure to how a fast-paced finance department operates. It also involved reconciliation and management of key balance sheet codes and preparing the monthly commercial pack
I have improved on my time management as there were many deadlines to adhere to. I also improved my communication skills as i was constantly communicating with all members of the department. I have learnt many financial skills such as how to accrue and prepay expenses, how to familiarise myself with accounting terminology and how to prepare a monthly balance sheet
Yes i was given a lot of responsibility throughout my placement year. which made me feel valued at the company and made me feel like the work i was doing made an impact on the company as a whole. This further encouraged me to complete my work at a high standard
I supported it greatly as my collegues were always open and available to any of my queries whenever i needed help. Whenever i was struggling with my work someone would always be on hand to help out
I really enjoyed the culture and atmosphere. The people there were really fun to be around and made it very enjoyable to come to work
I really enjoyed my placement year. I learnt many skills and really enjoyed the people i worked with. I always think back to my placement year and what a great opportunity that was for me.
i would say to stay confident and apply if you are really enthusiastic about the company and the direction that it is going in.
