Dutton Moore Trainee Flying High with Exam Success
19 October 2021

Congratulations to accountancy trainee Francesca Wilkinson who has completed her AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification and is now studying to be a fully qualified Chartered Accountant (ACA) after a successful start to her tenure in Dutton Moore’s in-house training scheme.

Frankie, who has just turned 21, joined Dutton Moore Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers in Aldgate House, Market Place, Hull, in November 2019. Frankie, from West Hull, studied her A Levels at Wyke Sixth Form College and was keen to work during her professional training instead of the university route.

Whilst studying for her professional qualifications, currently her Accounting and Assurance exams, Frankie is working as an Audit and Accounts Junior, preparing year end accounts for limited companies, sole traders, and partnerships. She also completes VAT returns, assists on audits and performs bookkeeping duties for Dutton Moore clients.

She is the latest in years of progressive succession planning at the firm with new school leavers joining every summer and going on to qualify. The firm has a long history of investing in young local talent and has an enviable in-house training scheme backed up by the professional industry examinations. Scores of accountants and Partners at Dutton Moore joined straight from school, college and university and have gone on to forge very successful careers at the city centre practice.

Tony Bullock, Managing Partner, said: “I am delighted that Frankie has now passed this first important stage in her accountancy career. Frankie has already shown real talent and strong progression and it’s great to see her flying through her exams with success. I am certain her accountancy career will continue to flourish.

“We are constantly investing in our future. It’s important to stay local and work with local people – we have the talent here and it’s important to harness it. Investing in our city and ultimately in our firm is a priority for us at Dutton Moore. Wherever possible we want to promote within and nurture our top-grade staff.”

Frankie added: “I’m really pleased to have been given this opportunity after leaving college and really pleased to have passed my AAT qualifications. I’m pleased I decided to take this route post A Levels and get straight into my chosen career path. I look forward to the next stage and taking on more challenging roles within Dutton Moore.”
