A Chester high school pupil swapped the classroom for an accountancy practice to gain an insight into the world of work.
Christleton High School pupil Sam Webb, visited Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers on a work experience placement.
Sam, 17, met Ellis & Co’s trainee accountant Nick Clarke during a careers day ran by the West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce Young Chamber team.
“I found my time at Ellis & Co very helpful, I was able to use new methods of skills to boost my knowledge,” said Sam.
“During my time I took part in growth creation and bank reconciliations.
“I enjoyed my time here and I am grateful to have had an insight into the world of accounting.”
Young Chamber is an initiative from the West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce for schools and colleges; its purpose is to help bridge the gap between businesses and the education sector.
“The Young Chamber programme aims to develop the skills and experience of students in the region by engaging with some of the area’s finest businesses, such as Ellis & Co,” said Jenny Davidson, Events & Young Chamber Manager at West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce.
“We are so pleased that Sam enjoyed his time at Ellis & Co and are sure this experience will be beneficial when he leaves education.”
