Celebrations are in order for four newly qualified members of staff at top-20 UK accountancy firm Wilkins Kennedy, after reaching ACA and ACCA status.
 
Sezen Tuncbilek, Georgina Tranter, Erhan Kale and Oliver Shaw have all passed their final exams and will now be recognised as fully qualified members of staff by the firm. They have also received a visit at their offices from Wilkins Kennedy’s Managing Partner, Dave Fenn, who has congratulated them all personally with a bottle of champagne each.
 
Sezen, who started working at Wilkins Kennedy five years ago following AAT study, will be based at the London office with fellow newly qualified team member, Georgina, who pursued a career in accountancy following her University studies. She graduated in Economics from the University of Nottingham and started working at Wilkins Kennedy in August 2013.
 
Erhan joined Wilkins Kennedy two years ago after studying Accounting and Finance to Masters degree-level at the University of Exeter and chose the accountancy profession for the career opportunities. He will be based in the Hertford office with Oliver who is following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps with his own budding accountancy career, joining Wilkins Kennedy in 2013.
 
Wilkins Kennedy has historical success with newly qualified members of staff, and every six months, Managing Partner, Dave Fenn, personally congratulates each new team member. He commented: “We are looking forward to helping our newly qualified staff develop their careers with the practice. A lot of effort and hard work goes into qualification and I am really pleased with the latest round. I would personally like to wish them all the very best in their future careers with us.”
