Four university graduates and two school leavers have chosen to start their accountancy careers at UHY Hacker Young’s Nottingham office.
Hannah Terry, Katherine Rich, Matthew Hart and Sohail Amin have joined the leading accountancy firm as graduates in the audit and accounts team. As part of this, the group will be studying for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales Chartered Accountant ACA qualification while working at UHY.
Two school leavers – Joe McGarrigle and Joshua Lead – have also joined the firm in its client support team, hailing from local schools The Priory Ruskin Academy in Grantham and Hall Park Academy in Eastwood respectively. Joe and Joshua will be studying towards the Association of Accounts Technician (AAT) qualification.
Katherine, who graduated with a PhD in English from the University of York, said: “Working for UHY is a great opportunity to be part of a firm that is going to teach me the best practices and provide me with the opportunity to learn and build a successful career as an accountant. Even though it is an industry leader with hugely varied areas of business, UHY still maintains a more personal approach to its clients – which is what attracted me to join the team.
“After completing my PhD I was attracted to accountancy due to the varied nature of the work and all the different avenues it could open up for me in the future. I always enjoyed maths – it just wasn’t what I chose to pursue at degree level. It’s been an adjustment for me to work in a different sector, but one that makes sense and I find satisfying.
“At UHY I will have the opportunity to work with a large variety of clients. We are already getting to grips with the business and have started a bookkeeping course to learn the fundamentals. Overall, I’m really excited about the future and working towards chartered accountancy at UHY.”
Simon Browning, Partner in charge of the Nottingham office at UHY, said: “We’re delighted that six talented young people have chosen UHY to start their careers. We are looking forward to seeing their skills develop while they flourish in their new roles and the industry.”
