New Trainee Accountant Joins the Brightshire Team – Welcome Libby


The team at Brightshire would like to introduce you to Libby, who joined us recently as our new trainee accountant.

We’re sure you’ll extend an extremely warm welcome to Libby, as she begins her accountancy training and supports all of us and our diverse range of clients.

Meet Libby

After completing her A-Levels and then beginning her AAT, Libby decided that going for an apprenticeship would enable her to further her AAT qualification whilst gaining further knowledge of accountancy.

Having spoken with her mum, who is actually a chartered accountant, Libby decided that she had a real keen interest in accountancy and it was the right road to go down – She has always had an eye for numbers and is eager to work with him, something we strive for at Brightshire.

Why Brightshire?

Whilst looking for job opportunities throughout lockdown, Libby came across an accounting apprenticeship for Brightshire. The apprenticeship attracted her as it was a small but growing business. Libby wants to be part of a close-knit team with the ability to progress and learn to make an impact for the clients she works for.

Having been at Brightshire for a few weeks now, Libby has settled in extremely well and is gaining experience in her work alongside the rest of the Brightshire team.

What’s next? 

Libby hopes to progress within the role whilst studying for the Level 3 AAT, which will hopefully be completed by next Christmas. With the continued growth of Brightshire, the opportunities to develop within the firm are expanding and as the practice actively encourages the development and training of the team, Libby intends to continue her studies further.

We hope you will extend your warmest welcome to Libby!

We are thrilled to welcome another team member through the Brightshire doors.”
