Elaine considers becoming a qualified accountant as her greatest career achievement to date. Originally, Elaine started as a PA to a financial controller and with her manager's encouragement, she began to pursue her accountancy qualification.
Her most valuable piece of advice to budding accountants is dedication. "Have faith and keep going, especially when studying part-time. It may seem like you are constantly working and studying with no free time but it really is worth it in the end."
