IN-Troducing the newest member of the IN Team

IN Accountancy

Meet Rourke Neal, the newest member of the IN Team, who joined us on 2nd September 2019 and has already hit the ground running.

A true local lad and a bright spark, Rourke attended Aquinas College after leaving Bramhall High School and studied A Levels in Accounting, Economics and PE, achieving 2 ‘A’s and a ‘C’, all while captaining their football first team!

Not one to sit around doing nothing, he has continued his sporting career playing for Stockport Town U21s as well as getting regular opportunities with the first team.

Since starting studying accountancy Rourke has known that this was the career he wanted, and contacted us last year to find out more about the career options and to understand more about the pros and cons of an apprenticeship route versus going to university. Having spoken to Theo and Olivia who were part way through their fast track Level 3 AAT qualifications at that time, he decided that there would be much more value to him to learn and gain on the job experience while obtaining a professional qualification than going straight to university and coming out potentially with lots of debt and little or no professional working experience.

Rourke joins us on a fast track apprenticeship programme where he will qualify with a level 3 AAT qualification within less than 12 months and achieve level 4 within the next two years.

He has a lot to live up to following in the footsteps of Theo and Olivia who have flown through their Level 3 qualifications and are only one exam away from qualifying at level 4. In a competitive young man like Rourke, this doesn’t phase him at all!

Update to this article which was originally posted last month is that Rourke has already sat and passed his first professional exam with a whopping 95%! Onward and upwards…

If you are a high flyer who’d love a career in accountancy starting in September 2020, why not drop us a line or give us a call to see if a programme like this would suit you.
