A Long History of Apprenticeship Success – Leigh Christou Accountants

L-R: Hollie Fielding, James Smithyman, Siobhan Ceairns, Bradley Ward & Steven Walsgrove

Over the years the practice has employed many staff members, some of whom remain with the company today, having worked through the ranks to achieve both professional qualifications and promotion by recognition of their skills. Leigh Christou Limited prides itself on a highly dedicated team who share the commitment to their clients and strive to offer a professional service at all times.

Leigh Christou believe some of their greatest staff success stories are Apprentices who have joined the firm from school and worked their way through accountancy study to ultimately achieve professional success.

Siobhan Ceairns (nee Harkin) joined Leigh Christou as an Apprentice after finishing school in 2004 and is now AAT and ACCA qualified. She is currently ‘Business Services Manager’ heading up a strong team and using her skills to train new staff members.

Steven Walsgrove, like Siobhan, joined Leigh Christou Limited as an Apprentice straight from school in 2007 and succeeded at AAT before qualifying as an ACCA accountant in 2016.

Hollie Fielding joined the team in 2015 after completing her ‘A’ levels and has rapidly progressed within the firm. Hollie has completed her AAT and has recently commenced her ACCA studies with Kaplan.

Bradley Ward has been with Leigh Christou for a year now and has recently commenced his AAT Level 3. He now provides invaluable support with payroll, bookkeeping and accounts production.

James Smithyman is the newest addition to the team and has recently commenced his AAT Level 2 with Kaplan arranged through Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber Training.

We look forward to all our team members continuing their success with Leigh Christou Limited.

Leigh Christou Limited believes the recipe for success is ultimately developing a team of strong capable individuals and then applying their individual strengths to develop the team as a whole.

Thankfully this is something they appear to have achieved judging by the commendations they have received from their clients.

Good luck for the next 30 years!
