Students Join Cowgill Holloway Future Stars Programme
Two Sixth Form pupils from Bolton School became the first participants of our first Future Stars programme during October half term.
This brand new initiative, which was announced in September, is designed to give two students, an in-depth insight into the world of business and finance through a series of week-long placements.
The programme will last four weeks in total, spread over the school year. Successful applicants join staff at Cowgill Holloway to experience specific areas of the business, experiencing audit, tax, business recovery, wealth management, corporate finance, and support services. In each department, a wide range of tasks will be open to them, allowing them to attend meetings, complete project work and shadow senior managers.
Mehranguiz Mokri and Nat Roohan, who are both in Year 12, were the two successful applicants this year following the interview stage.
Reflecting on his placement so far, Nat said: “During the second week of the October half term, I went to Cowgill Holloway Accountancy firm as part of their Future Stars Programme and worked in the auditing department. There was a very good atmosphere in the office and always someone to help me if I had any questions. I was impressed by how much they were able to get me involved. Overall it was a very useful and enjoyable experience and I’m looking forward to the remaining three weeks of my placement which will take place during the Easter and summer holidays.”
Mehranguiz has also found the experience beneficial and said: “The Cowgill Holloway placement experience has been enriching in many ways. The exposure to the working environment as well as the wealth management field has taught me a lot and given me experience that will help me for years to come. The varied structure of the days helped to maintain a high level of interest, and every day brought something new.”
Rob Lord, Partner at Cowgill Holloway said; “Our work experience programme offers students the opportunity to spend time observing and working on real projects within all departments in our firm. The programme is designed for students who are considering a future career in accountancy and finance. We have been really impressed by the standard of work from both Mehranguiz and Nat, they have set the bar high for future participants. We look forward to them continuing their placements with us over the rest of the year.”
