Trainee Cohort

Meet Jack

Hawksford’s vibrant and forward-thinking career development is expertly structured to develop the skills you need to progress your career and achieve your ambition.

What school did you go to?

De La Salle College

What made you choose Hawksford?

 Hawksford was advertising a trainee accountant position which was a role I had been looking for in order to start my accountancy career. I was fortunate to be successful in the interviews and be offered the position. After the first couple of weeks, I knew that I had made the right decision in joining Hawksford. 

We believe in having fun at Hawksford with a variety of after-work activities - what has been your favourite?

It's hard to choose a specific event because I have enjoyed all of the Hawksford events I have attended and it was a great way for me to meet more people within the organisation, outside of my team. 

What does your typical day consist of?

It varies day to day which is why it’s such a great role. As a trainee I have tasks such as preparing accounts, liaising with other team embers and bringing the bookkeeping up to date, but there’s always something new to learn.

Hawksford offers opportunities to learn and dedicated support. What professional training will you be doing or have you done whilst at Hawksford?

Hawksford has been really supportive by giving me the opportunity to study towards my ACCA exams. I am really enjoying my course and the practical on job training which Hawksford provides.  

What does ‘looking forward’ mean to you and what are your next career steps?

To me, looking forward means planning the best professional route to help me achieve my career goals, and Hawksford has been really supportive in helping me to plot out this route. Looking forward means working hard towards my ACCA qualification which will give me a solid understanding of accountancy. I am very eager to complete my studies and progress with my career at Hawksford. 

What advice can you give to others looking for employment?

If you are looking for an employer that offers you every opportunity to progress, then Hawksford is the place for you.  I started my career straight from school and Hawksford has been very supportive in making the transition from the class room to the work place.
