Career in Accountancy

Thursday 5th November – Virtual Employer Encounter with HOP and Ashlynwood

Ashlynwood was pleased to take part in a virtual employer encounter in collaboration with Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Hertfordshire Opportunities Portal (HOP); who have launched a new series of webinars featuring interviews with local employers.

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, schools across the UK have been unable to meet the requirement to provide students with at least one meaningful encounter with an employer per year, traditionally achieved through careers talks and work experience opportunities. These encounters are a vital part of careers education, with research linking them to increased motivation, aspiration, and a greater chance for future success in the workplace.

This webinar explored the opportunities available within Accountancy looking at both working in an accountancy practice and working within Industry and Commerce in an accountancy role. The panelist included:

  • Deep Shah – Head of Commercial and IT, Little Kickers Group
  • Matthew Rawlins – Director of Sales and Account Management, Kaplan UK
  • Ashish Patani – Director, Ashlynwood
  • Hosted by Gareth Dace and Mia Bashford from Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership
