I am currently completing a three year graduate scheme with the farming department at Albert Goodman Accountants, which I started after graduating from the RAU in 2014. I have been learning about everything from tax and business finance, to VAT and annual accounts– if you’re interested in the figures behind farming this is the perfect career to embark on. I particularly enjoy getting out and about, meeting the clients and visiting their farms, which gives me a better understanding of their business when handling their accounts.
Studying agriculture at the RAU has given me an in depth knowledge and understanding of the land-based sector.
What I gained from the RAU
Studying agriculture at the RAU has given me an in depth knowledge and understanding of the land-based sector, invaluable for my day-to-day work. I am due to take my final exams to become a chartered accountant in July 2017, and look forward to progressing my career within the company.
