My job as a Purchase Ledger Assistant is my first since leaving School. I had a part-time job in a fish and chip shop while I was still at school but this is my first, real job. So far, the job has been…definitely much better than wrapping up fish!

I had first heard about the job role through Routes to Work. I wasn’t sure about what I wanted to do at the time but I felt confident enough to apply as I knew I would like an office-based job. That has been proven so far: on a typical day, I answer lots of phone calls and emails, post invoices and credits, and send queries on the invoices over to our Buying team. Also, at the end of every month, we square bank statements for our Accounts department.

I really enjoy working at CCG. The people I work with are all lovely and I like the fact my department is full of girls and we all work as a team. If anyone is stuck and needs a hand with something, we all help to solve the problem and we have a good laugh.

I would definitely recommend this method of learning because you are actually involved in a working environment whilst studying. I think this will really help me in the future.

A little about me:
I like to keep fit and go to the gym. I LOVE shopping and treating myself to nice things, and going out with my friends at the weekend.
