Long standing Chamber members Fylde Office Service Bureau (FOSB) are delighted with the achievements of two of their apprentices – Kieran Leaman and Josh Taylor.
Kieran joined the business as an Accounts Apprentice in 2015, completing the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Level 2 certificate in Accounting. He quickly progressed, assisting the team complete year end accounts, VAT returns for clients and dealing with taxation matters for self-employed clients.
Kieran went on to complete his AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting without any resits. In his third year with FOSB he started his Level 4 Professional Diploma in Accounting, allowing him to complete year end accounts for Limited Companies. He has now completed his AAT Level 4 Apprenticeship and is now fully AAT qualified. Kieran thinks, “FOSB is an amazing place to work which has given me a great opportunity I will be forever grateful for.”
Josh has worked at FOSB for approximately 18 months and has recently achieved his AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accountancy. He feels, “FOSB as a company have allowed me to develop and grow” and that, “work is always available of a sufficient level to help me progress.” The work that he completes for clients includes: VAT Returns, Self-Assessment Returns, Bookkeeping and End of Year Accounts. Josh is looking forward to the future as he progresses onto his AAT Level 4 Diploma in Accountancy.
