Jordan King, a senior accountant at Price Bailey in Norwich, has achieved a mark of 98% for his ACA project, officially qualifying him as an accountant.
Jordan’s report was focused on five key skills and behaviours such as building relationships and flexibility. For these, he drew on his experiences gained whilst working at Price Bailey describing the situation, actions and effectiveness as well as what he learnt. This was the final assessment in Jordan’s level 7 accountancy apprenticeship with The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
Joining Price Bailey on their Stepstone graduate programme, Jordan works in the Corporate team as an audit senior. In the last three years, he has worked on various private and public sector audits with a particular focus on group audits.
When asked what Jordan enjoys most about working as an accountant, Jordan said: “I feel trusted by clients and I am able to help them whilst using my specialist knowledge. I enjoy the exposure to a variety of interesting businesses and charities, as well as brushing shoulders with business professionals who are advanced in their careers and can offer me great learning opportunities. Price Bailey has always supported me throughout my career to date and provided me with challenging work which has supplemented my skills and experience alongside my studies.
“Study has been a significant part of my life to date; it has helped me to get to where I am today and will benefit me in my future career.”
Aaron Widdows, Corporate Partner said: “Price Bailey’s success is down to our two greatest assets, our clients and our staff. With people like Jordan on board we are very confident for the future of our firm.”
“We are thrilled for Jordan; he is an incredibly capable student and applies his skill in the workplace. We look forward to seeing him grow in his role using his skills and qualification to benefit our clients.”
