Tabs is one of our brilliant Accountants. She completed her AAT Level 4 in August 2022, the highest level of recognition by the Association of Accounting Technicians, marking the end of her four years of study and solidifying her as a fully-qualified accountant.
Tabitha joined Whyfield in 2018, at just 17 years old, as an AAT Level 2 Apprentice straight after finishing her first year of A Levels. She had originally worked with us over the summer for her work experience, at the end of which we offered her the apprenticeship.
This is Tabitha’s first role in the industry, having worked in a local café during her GCSEs and A-Levels before taking on her apprenticeship at Whyfield.
Explaining her decision to start an apprenticeship with Whyfield, Tabitha said: “I actually worked over the summer at Whyfield on a work experience placement and saw first-hand what a great place it is. Taking an apprenticeship here, with the chance to earn and learn, feels like the best decision I have made!”
She has since completed her Level 2, Level 3, and most recently her AAT Level 4 – officially completing her apprenticeship. She isn’t finished yet though… she’s now looking forward to moving on to her Chartered Accountancy studies in the next couple of months.
She provides valuable support to clients and the team, completing a variety of working that includes bookkeeping, VAT and CIS returns, preparation of accounts, and tax returns for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies. She’s also Quickbooks and Xero certified!
When Tabs isn’t in the office, you’ll most likely find her out riding her horse, or enjoying time with her friends and family whilst finding new places to explore and cafés to eat at.
