CHARTERED accountancy firm Clough & Company has appointed Jen Moffatt as an audit accounts assistant.

Ms Moffatt (pictured), who is originally from The Wirral but lives in Huddersfield, is based within the firm’s audit and accounts department. She is also working towards her Associate Chartered Accountant qualification at college. To qualify, she must pass 15 exams while also receiving valuable experience in the workplace.

She said: “I have already sat and passed six exams and I’m now working towards the remaining nine over the next couple of years.”

Clough & Company, which has offices in Cleckheaton and Keighley, is financing Ms Moffatt’s study.

Steven Gash, practice chairman of Clough & Company, said: “We are committed to recruiting and training the most talented professionals in order to provide the very best accountancy services to our valued clients.

“At a time when many professional services firms are making cuts or merging we have built up a respected business that hires, trains and keeps its staff to provide our clients with unrivalled continuity.”
