A highly valued and talented accountant at Aston Shaw has now become ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) qualified. Susie Tennant has been with us since 2015 when she joined as a Trainee Accountant after graduating in Accounting & Finance from Anglia Ruskin University at the end of June 2015.
Since then, Susie has gone on to become a fully ACCA qualified Accountant. When Susie first started at Aston Shaw, her time was split across the Norwich and Cambridge office where, in addition to her training from ACCA, she received on-the-job training. Early on in Susie’s employment, it became apparent that Susie was an exceptional Accountant – it came as no surprise to the rest of us when she went on to pass all 5 ACCA exams the first time!
During 2017, Susie became full-time at our Cambridge office because we knew Susie would be of great help in implementing the acquisition of the local firm, JKL Consultants. The acquisition and the subsequent jump in client numbers it brought, resulted in us upsizing to a much larger office. Throughout this time, Susie proved invaluable as she helped make the whole process as smooth and as seamless as possible.
Once things at the new Cambridge office settled down, Susie returned to the Norwich office with a much broader knowledge of accountancy and it wasn’t long after this that Susie passed her final exam. Susie put in three years of hard work where she found herself juggling a full-time job across two offices and long hours of revision, while also trying to maintain a social life! Somehow, Susie pulled it all off and can now proudly call herself a fully qualified Accountant.
Susie had the following to say about passing her final exam: “It’s truly an amazing feeling to finally reach the end of a long and difficult journey. While tough, it was all worth it in the end. I couldn’t be happier and I’m really looking forward to what the future holds!”
All of us here at Aston Shaw congratulate Susie on her success and wish her the very best of luck for the future.
