To mark National Careers Week, we’ve caught up with Chloe White, Management Accountant at Northstone on her career to date and goals for the future.
As Northstone's Management Accountant, Chloe looks after the costs and income associated with the business such as cash management, pulling together the profit and loss accounts, budgeting and reporting on the figures.
In her own words, Chloe tells us more about her current studies whilst working at Northstone and her career ambitions:
“I’m currently studying my final level of CIMA, Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, which Northstone are funding. Their support has been great, learning on the job in invaluable and I am also able to take study days where I can revise at home for two days running up to my exams.
I am studying through iCount Training, who are the chosen training provider for Peel L&P, and I am really enjoying the course. Fortunately, there are other team members from the wider business also studying the qualification, so I have also made friends along the journey.
I’m working towards completing my qualification this year and my ambition is to progress within Northstone as it grows. As a relatively new company, it is exciting to be part of the team from the early days and I am looking forward to being part of shaping the future of the company.
Before Northstone, I worked for Peel Media for seven years, who are also based at MediaCityUK. I started my CIMA qualification here, so I have always been supported by my employer to extend my skillset. It is important to find an employer who is passionate and supports employee development, so my advice to anyone looking to further their career or begin a career in finance would be to do your homework on your potential employer. Find out about the support they offer to employees through development and training as well as learning more about their work culture.
