Liam Knight

Liam is one of our tax trainees and on a typical day he spends his time doing a variety of different tax-related work for our clients. The team work alongside Liam to help him understand new areas of tax that he was not aware of before, which not only helps him improve the quality of his work, but it also gives him the knowledge needed to pass his professional qualifications.

 

Liam said

‘I really enjoy being able to manage my own workload rather than being told exactly what to do and when to do it. I also find it fascinating learning about new areas of tax and how they work in real world scenarios rather than just in exam questions.

 

I found out about Wright Vigar through a member of my family who has used the company’s services for many years, they said that the staff that they dealt with were professional and friendly, I then checked the vacancies page and there was a graduate role in tax available, the company stood out to me as I have heard a lot of positive things about it. I really enjoy the flexibility that the company provide in working hours, and the fact that the company has invested in my development by funding my studies and trusting me to manage my workload myself.’

Matt Allen

Matt is one of our accounts graduates and is involved in a huge range of tasks, from audit and substantive testing to general accounts’ duties and VAT returns for a mixture of our clients.

 

Matt said

‘I really enjoy working with colleagues who are always readily available to help and support me throughout the typical day. WV care about people, which not only underpins great relationships with clients, it contributes to a fantastic WV community.

 

Instantly from meeting the team in my interview, I knew that WV are genuinely interested in what you have to say about yourself. Studying towards qualifications can be quite daunting while having a full-time job, however WV offer generous study days to support your own career progression.

 

I have been able to work with a range of clients on-site; large and small. Clients have a range of avenues in which they dip their toes in, and this has given me a wider understanding of how businesses operate – financially and systematically.’

Bethan Williams

Bethan works on a number of different accounts jobs and audits. Whilst at University Bethan took part in our mentoring scheme during which one of the Associate Directors from Wright Vigar was her mentor. After coming into the office a number of times, she immediately knew that this was the type of environment that she wanted to work in.

 

Bethan said

‘I enjoy working in a supportive team who are always willing to help no matter how busy they are themselves. Working at Wright Vigar has allowed me to put into practice the things I learnt at university so has greatly increased my knowledge of the accounting industry. When I first started, I was assigned a buddy who is my first port of call should I have any questions, however, anyone in the office is willing to help if I need it.

 

I also really like the fact no day is the same especially with the flexible working so I can work at the times that suit me best.’

ADVICE TO CURRENT STUDENTS
