I enjoyed learning about tax at both A-level and university, so a career in tax felt like a natural choice. Upon completing my degree, I applied for roles in tax and secured my first job at Wisteria.

What do you enjoy most about your job, and what do you find most challenging?

I like that my work is varied; I do a mix of personal tax, corporate tax, payroll, and consultancy in my role. The most challenging aspect of my job is keeping up with tight deadlines and ever-changing tax legislation.

I think the most important trait for success in my current role is sound organisation skills. I strive to embody this quality by implementing systems to ensure my workflow is organised and methodical.
