Accountant Katie makes the grade [Lincolnshire Echo (England)]
(Lincolnshire Echo (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) After five years of training, a 24-year-old has finally qualified to be an accountant. Katie Melton, of Louth, recently passed her final exam and is now a member of an accountancy team at Grimsby firm AP Robinson.
Miss Melton passed up the chance of a place at the University of Hull to train.
She said: Accountancy isn't just a job, it's a career and that's what I really wanted in the first place.
I'm glad I was able to jump straight into work and avoid university debt. Who wouldn't want to avoid debt if they are able to? Miss Melton completed her AAT qualification at Forrester Boyd, while continuing to work and develop her accounting skills.
She described her time there as a great learning experience which fuelled her passion for going into the profession.
I really enjoy business and I looked at different jobs to begin with but accountancy really stood out and I could see myself doing it in the future, she said.
After leaving Forrester Boyd, she moved to Lincoln's Nicholson's Accountants, where she passed her ACCA qualification. She then moved to AP Robinson, which provided her with support until she qualified.
