CB Reid is delighted to welcome Sam Holmes to the team. Sam has joined us as a Graduate Trainee and has already brought huge enthusiasm to the role.

Sam says, ‘As a new Trainee Chartered Accountant, this isn’t just my first time working in accountancy, it’s my first time working in an office. It’s a little different to how I expected (given the COVID-19 situation going on right now) but the team members I have met here have been incredibly welcoming. While I was nervous at first about being almost completely new to this field, their help has been invaluable, and the learning process so far has been both intuitive and rewarding.

I studied at Keele University from 2014 to 2018, when I graduated with a BSc in Mathematics. Though I feel I had a lot of options ahead of me, accountancy stood out as something that I would both enjoy and be very good at. I am passionate about computers, excellent with large sets of data, and very detail-specific when it comes to words and numbers. On top of this, CB Reid stood out as my first choice for firms to work at. Throughout the interview process, I could tell that the atmosphere in the office was friendly and relaxed, but with a highly professional and dedicated approach to their work.

I have only just started my journey with the ACA but I know that I will have the right guidance and support from everybody here.’

Matt Haines, Director at CB Reid said, ‘It’s a real pleasure to welcome Sam to the team. We can already see his potential and his enthusiasm for hard work is really impressive. CB Reid has always been committed to developing talent and providing the highest quality training and we’re all looking forward to supporting him on his journey’.
