Top marks for Smith & Williamson graduate trainees

Two graduate trainees from the Bristol office of accountancy and investment management firm, Smith & Williamson, have achieved top grades in their chartered accountancy exams.

Thomas Millership was placed first in the Case Study and Lucy Fowler was placed first in the Business Reporting paper within the West of England Society of Chartered Accountants (WESCA) in the Advanced Stage Examinations. 

Tom and Lucy were presented with their certificates at the WESCA annual dinner held in Bristol recently.

“Training to be an auditor at Smith & Williamson has given me the opportunity to meet a wide range of clients and gain experience into how different businesses operate while studying to gain my ACA chartered accountancy qualification,” said Tom, who is now an auditor at Smith & Williamson. “I was over the moon to pass my final exams. Winning an award definitely added a cherry to the cake and made all the hours of studying worthwhile.”

Lucy, who is also now a qualified auditor at Smith & Williamson, added: “I am really proud of what Tom and I have achieved. We couldn’t have done it without the support from our colleagues at Smith & Williamson.”

The Bristol office of Smith & Williamson currently has 24 trainees – 19 on its graduate programme and five on apprenticeships.
