School students urged to consider a career in accountancy

Students thinking of taking A-levels or going to university are being invited to find out more about a career in accountancy.

Princecroft Willis (PcW) is holding an open evening at its Poole offices highlighting the opportunities available including its apprenticeship programmes.

The free event, on Tuesday October 14, is aimed at school students in Years 11, 12 and 13. Parents are also welcome to come along for support.

James Robinson, PcW Director, said: "A career in accountancy is more than just maths and numbers. Believe it or not we do actually have fun!

"Students attending will hear from our team about their experiences. They can also speak to our accounts and tax apprentices on a one to one basis.

"We take on apprentices each school leaving year as part of our industry accredited training programme. A number of our former apprentices are now heading up their own teams within the firm.

"This is an excellent opportunity for young people to find out more about working in a sector which, despite its stereotypical image, can be exciting, varied and provide great job satisfaction."

Free refreshments will be provided at the event which is held at Towngate House, 2-8 Parkstone Road, Poole, from 6pm - 8pm.

Space is limited and anyone thinking of attending should register first by emailing lindsey.drake@princecroftwillis.co.uk or calling 01202 663628 with their name and contact details.
