Hertford’s largest accountancy firm, Wilkins Kennedy, is pleased to have taken part in a successful afternoon at the recent careers’ fair held at Simon Balle School in Hertford.


On Wednesday 15th July the school held an event for all Year 10 and 12 students now starting to think about their first step on the career ladder.


The event showcased a number of local employers, from an array of trades and professions, who were able to talk to the students in depth about possible career paths.  Many students highlighted business and accountancy as a field of particular interest and the staff at Wilkins Kennedy Hertford were pleased to discuss all aspects of the job, including the services offered to clients and the different entry routes into the profession. 


On the day there was a steady stream of interested young people who spoke to the WK team, which included Nick Woolfe, one of the practice’s Directors, Deborah Williams and Amanda Fletcher, senior members of the audit and tax teams respectively.


Mandy Wilson, Partner at Wilkins Kennedy Hertford said: “We greatly value our relationship with Simon Balle School and were delighted when we were asked to attend the fair.  Our staff were overwhelmed by the amount of interest our stand received. We hope that the students found the afternoon enjoyable and insightful and that the fair has sown the seeds to nurturing some future accounting talent”.
