Celebrating Exam Success after helping Train the Next Generation of Accountants
Posted on 1st February 2023 at 16:02
We are delighted to announce that Manon Rees, in the Ammanford office, has completed her studies and passed all her exams to become a qualified member of the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants).
Manon, who is from Saron, joined the Ashmole & Co team as a Trainee Accountant in July 2020, after graduating from Aberystwyth University with a First in Accounting and Finance. Initially Manon did two weeks work experience with the firm in her second year in University and made such a great impression that she was offered a trainee role once she had graduated.
As well as gaining a first in her degree, Manon, in her final year at University, received the Sir Julian Hodge prize for best performance in Accounting and Finance and the Sir Julian Hodge prize for Advanced Topics in Accounting – Audit.
Laura Craddock, Partner in Ashmole & Co’s Ammanford office said, “We are all so proud of Manon and her fantastic achievements. She has become an integral part of our team in the Ammanford office. It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch her going from strength to strength. It is important as a profession that we help to train the next generation of accountants. Qualified staff members are the lifeblood for the future success of our firm.”
Manon’s day to day responsibilities include preparing year end accounts for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies; completing VAT returns; helping clients use various accounting software and assisting in audit work.
Manon said, “I am grateful to Ashmole and Co for being so supportive since I started and helping me gain my qualifications. I am enjoying working with local businesses and knowing that I am helping them with their needs. It is very rewarding to see the end results once I complete a client’s set of year end accounts.”
Manon lives in Saron, Ammanford and in her spare time enjoys meeting her friends, taking her dog for walks and baking.
