Michael Edwards


Position within firm – Accounts Associate

What do you do?

I work on many things such as year-end accounts; year-end audits either remotely or including visits to the client’s premises, both monthly and quarterly management accounts. Also, prepare and submit quarterly and monthly VAT returns.

What do you enjoy most about your job/ what motivates you to get up in the morning?

The job provides me with the opportunity to problem solve and help/advise clients. I get the opportunity to meet clients from a range of business sectors with differing job requirements.

No one day is the same, no one week is the same and that makes the job more interesting. I never know for sure what my day has in store.

The responsibility to deliver great results for our clients is always satisfying.

What projects do you work on?

I have recently become a fully qualified AAT accountant, whilst working at the firm. I am now currently undertaking my ICAEW qualifications, and steadily progressing through this.

I am given the responsibility to control my own development and be able to balance my work life with my personal life.

Outside of work, I am currently captain for my local cricket team and have been doing this now for the last 3 years. This has so far been a successful period after finishing as champions in 2022.

What is on top of your bucket list?

I am a big lover of my sports, especially football and cricket, so I would like to follow England aboard in a major football competition and follow the national cricket team away in Australia for the Ashes at some points in the future. To win the works fantasy football league is another dream of mine.
