Last week, we welcomed Jack Askham into our office for work experience.
Jack is in his last year at college, currently studying towards his A Levels in Economics, Geography and Psychology. Jack joined our Accounts department for a week, to gain real-sector experience. We caught up with him to find out how his work experience was and see what he thought of his workmates…
What departments did you have exposure to?
My time here was mainly spent in the Accounts department, but for 2 days I helped out in the Tax Department, Funding department and delved into the Marketing side of firm which was quite fun!
What projects did you get involve in?
In Accounting, I got involved in all general aspects of accounting, data inputting etc, but mainly focused on checking when accounts are due for companies using companies house. When I spent the day with Tax, I helped check that clients have payed through IRIS. And in Marketing, I helped with creating and posting some cool imagery for social media and with Funding, I got involved in a little database research.
What did you take away from your experience with us?
After working with Sedulo, I gained a real insight into Accountancy, Marketing and Tax, and what is involved in day to day tasks. I’ve learnt how to put my new skills into practice in a working environment!
Finally, what are your thoughts on your workmates?
