I started at Nichols & Co when I was 23 and had just finished university studying Accountancy. Straight away it was clear to me that the team at Nichols & Co were very knowledgeable, and that throughout the company the staff all took pride in working to the high standard that is expected throughout the business. There is a family atmosphere at the company which I enjoyed, with the focus being on the client. The team has a good mix of experience and age which helps create a friendly and enjoyable working environment. At Nichols & Co everyone contributes, and everyone can have a say in matters to help improve the firm.
From the beginning I was offered support to progress my accounting qualifications which I think is important for anyone in our line of work. Throughout my time there I was both challenged and supported in equal measure. Help was there when I needed it, but I was also encouraged to take on responsibility and broaden my knowledge as much as possible.
Throughout my time at Nichols & Co I felt as though I grew as both an accountant and as a person, and progressed from Accounts Junior to Tax Manager. This couldn’t have happened without the helpful and supportive team atmosphere created there.
The biggest compliment I can pay to the company is the fact that I, like many others who still work there now, stayed at the company for many years. My only reason for leaving was to relocate to be closer to my family. I’d like to thank everyone there and wish you all the best for the future.
