Gibson Hewitt open doors with work experience opportunity
When graduate Jamal Khan was looking for some experience in the competitive accountancy profession, West Byfleet-based business recovery and insolvency firm, Gibson Hewitt, stepped in to help.
Earlier in the year Jamal completed a degree at the University of Surrey, where he passed with a 2:1 in Business Management. During his course he studied accounting and decided this was the profession he wanted to enter.
Soon after completing his course he contacted Gibson Hewitt to see whether they would allow him to take part in some work experience with them, to which they happily agreed.
Speaking about his time at the firm, Jamal said: “I have really enjoyed the experience of working at Gibson Hewitt. The team have been extremely helpful and they have given me some excellent advice about entering the profession, which I hope to use when applying for jobs.”
Jamal is now hoping to secure a trainee accounting position that will enable him to gain the prestigious ACCA accounting qualification and serve as a professional accountant.
Lynn Gibson, Director at Gibson Hewitt, said: “We were delighted to offer Jamal a chance to try out the profession. He showed a lot of determination while he was with us and I hope his time spent at our firm will help him when he applies for future training roles.”
Gibson Hewitt is committed to helping and encouraging more people into the world of accountancy.
As part of this commitment, Lynn Gibson recently gave a talk to pupils at Fulbrook School in New Haw about the importance of work experience, which was well received by the students who attended.
