Welcome Owen Edwards to Brightshire!

All of us here at Brightshire would like to introduce Owen Edwards, who has joined us recently as our new Trainee Accountant. 

We’re sure you’ll extend an extremely warm welcome to Owen, as he begins his accountancy training and supports us all and our diverse range of agricultural and rural clients.

Meet Owen

After completing some work experience at a local accountancy practice, Owen decided accountancy was the pathway for him. During his time at college studying business, the financial aspects of the course sparked an interest and urged Owen to look at an accountancy apprenticeship in the area. Owen was particularly keen to get stuck into the office environment and learn on-the-job, gaining real-world experience.

Why Brightshire?

Whilst on the hunt for opportunities, Brightshire was a company whose name stood out to him. Having researched our values and culture, Owen knew that he wanted to pursue working for us.

As a business, we are always looking to provide training and develop our employees, and with being a close-knit team this provides trainees with dedicated support & guidance.  We’re excited to guide Owen through the complex accounting and taxation rules around the Agricultural Sector and to assist his understanding of what being a rural business means.

Outside of work, Owen is a very active individual, a true sports-lover at heart. He enjoys being a member of his local athletics and cricket team, whilst also being a huge football fan and player.

What does the future hold?

Owen has hit the ground running since starting with us! Getting to know each of our clients and the challenges they face, as well as getting to grips with the farming industry. We can’t wait to watch Owen progress and hope he has a long future with us here at Brightshire!
