Life before ETC

Why a career in tax?

I studied Accounting and Finance at Lancaster University and immediately decided that I did not want to be an accountant! I studied some tax modules that appealed to me a little more and then the rest is history. I got a graduate job with Deloitte in the same year I left university.

My best (and worst) bits

I would say that I am honest, approachable and easy to get along with – I enjoying meeting and talking to new people.

My worst – some may say a little too honest!
