"I started working at Anthony Russel in October 2008. I joined as a junior after Sixth Form College aged 18. I have been trained to a high standard and supported in my studies and education from the day I joined.
I started my education at Anthony Russel by going to college to study AAT, and obtained the AAT qualification in two years.
I then went on to study ACA while also moving up the firm as we grew. There is always support available for anyone wanting to progress further with their studies and education.
We have a great team at Anthony Russel and we have developed good relationships with each other. This has helped create a good working environment and also a level of support as we are always happy to help each other.
Our mission is to ‘exceed your expectations’. I have seen this mission develop throughout every department at Anthony Russel, and something I have seen us grow into since I joined."
"Previous to my employment at Anthony Russel, I had applied for college to do my Level 2 AAT. When I got offered an interview, I was excited as it gave me more options for my studies. Deciding to work for Anthony Russel as an apprentice was an easy decision, as I have gained a lot more experience in the work place and have developed a wider knowledge. When doing my exams, everyone at Anthony Russel is very supportive and positive towards my progression.
As a team we work towards quarterly targets, which motivates us to all work hard to achieve our goals. Once we have reached these targets we then get rewarded, previously we have been to London and horse racing.
Having now completed my Level 2 AAT, I have progressed to study Level 3 AAT and I am looking forward completing my AAT and further, with the help and support of Anthony Russel.
Currently I am an apprentice at Anthony Russel studying my Level 3 AAT at Colchester institute.
My main role is to make sure that all payroll is completed on time and to our client’s needs, myself, Lucy and Jamie all work together within our payroll department to ensure that all queries are answered."
"I started at Anthony Russel in 2012 as an apprentice and they supported me through my three years of AAT training. When I was nearing the end of the AAT qualification they encouraged me to consider the available options to further my career. I am now studying the ACCA qualification to become a certified accountant.
Anthony Russel have always helped me to build on the skills I learn at college. I started off doing easier tasks and as I gained more experience I was able to do more challenging work such as accounts production and tax returns. I am learning more at work every day which is helping me progress with my career. I also receive lots of help and support from my other colleagues.
We are set quarterly targets and are rewarded if we meet them. This motivates staff and encourages us to work together as a team to help to reach each target. We recently went to Hint Hunt in London which was a great afternoon out. These rewards help us to build strong relationships with each other."
"One of the main reasons I enjoy working at Anthony Russel is because of the progression I have managed to achieve whilst working with them. When I first joined in September 2013 after leaving school I began an apprenticeship of which they provided guidance and support throughout the three years of AAT training. When I was nearing the end of the AAT qualification they encouraged me to consider the available options to further my career and gain new skills, of which they are now supporting me through my ACCA training to become a certified accountant.
There are always opportunities to learn new things within the company and progress.
Another great aspect of working at Anthony Russel is the rewards we receive when we reach our quarterly targets of which we all do together, recently we have been horse racing and to Hint Hunt in London. This has really helped us to build up strong relationships with all colleagues and work together as a team.
Everyone at Anthony Russel is really approachable and friendly making it a happy working environment."
"Prior to working for Anthony Russel I was a bookkeeper for one of Wayne's clients. After a discussion with Chris about my progression and needing to move employment I was delighted when Wayne called me 3 weeks later asking if I would consider working for Anthony Russel.
Through dealing with members of the Anthony Russel team at my previous employment I knew it was a good move.
Everyone at Anthony Russel is friendly and from day one I could see they all support each other to achieve the best.
I had completed my AAT Level 4 prior to joining Anthony Russel and was part qualified ACCA. Wayne and Tony have been very supportive of my studies providing me with advice and time to assist in these, I now have 1 exam left until I am fully qualified ACCA.
My role at Anthony Russel is exciting as I migrate clients to new software mainly Xero and provide training and support for all their bookkeeping questions."
