I have worked in finance for several years starting as a graduate trainee with BT eventually qualifying as a member of CIMA and have worked in a variety of roles across industries such as Hospitality, IT, Education and the Charity sector. In one of my roles I was fortunate to be based in the US for a year. I have always loved Films and would be the last one in the cinema staying until the credits appeared but I struggled to find an ‘in’ in to the industry until a chance conversation at a party led me to the 2 day Introduction to Production Accounting course run by the NFS. It was this course which cemented my desire to be part of this industry and where I found out about the APATS scheme.
Fast forward 5 months and I am really excited to be offered a place on the scheme and to have the opportunity to use my finance skills in an Industry I have always wanted to be involved in. I am very much looking forward to my first placement.
