Profile

I have always been fascinated by numbers, and passionate about solving complex problems and analysing what numbers show. This led to me studying a business finance degree at the University of Hertfordshire in which I obtained a first class degree. I chose the University of Hertfordshire because of their desire for students to do a year’s work experience, to gain real life business exposure.

I am an extremely motivated individual who wants to be challenged and exposed to business activities to enhance my skills and develop myself into a very strong employee. From a young age my communication and team work skills have been developed through playing sport. My short-term goal is to work towards an accountancy qualification and to make as big a contribution to a company as possible.
