I’m Charlotte and I’m currently an associate in the Corporate Tax team in the Oxford office. During the summer of 2014 I was an intern at Grant Thornton and I came back as a graduate in August 2015. Throughout my final year of university I was a Campus Community Manager, helping out with trainee recruitment on campus – it was such a great experience and a great way to meet people and help them through the application process!
I studied Management Science and Accounting at the University of Southampton and am now studying the ACA qualification. I completed the certificate level in December 2015 and sat my first three professional level exams back in June 2016. Thankfully I passed all three and am now moving on to my second set of professional level exams – if all goes well I will be part qualified by the new year with just 3 exams left to go. It has to be said that the exams are hard work but it is so worth it and very do-able if you apply yourself!
My blogs will hopefully provide you with an idea of what life is like as a second year tax trainee in the Thames Valley (Oxford and Reading). I am also happy to help out with any questions about the internship, working in tax or anything else you may think of! (I’ll certainly point you in the right direction if I don’t have the answer.)
