When I moved to England from Poland, I decided to completely change my career direction and go into Accountancy. Apprenticeship seemed like a good way for me to get a head start by gaining valuable work experience in Accountancy at the same time as I was studying towards my qualifications.
At the beginning of my apprenticeship with Advanced Innergy Solutions, I started with admin duties, but as my knowledge and experience were increasing I was able to progress to more complex tasks including bookkeeping, cost analysis, budgeting, and accounting as a whole. It was an apprenticeship requirement that I would be in College for one day per week to study. My employer was very supportive of this arrangement and would always give me time to study and work on College assignments.
I am really pleased to be staying on with Advance Innergy Solutions. The plan is to continue to develop professionally and my employer has agreed to fund my ACCA qualification and certification. It is a logical next step for me, as I am looking to further advance my career.
