John Farnworth


Brief overview of job role:

I work in the business services department studying towards my ACA.

My career journey:

I started studying Accounting at Runshaw College. I decided I wanted to pursue a career in a business-related field which led me to apply for a degree at Bangor University where I attained a BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance Degree. During the final months of University, I applied for a full-time trainee position at Pierce with an agreement to complete my ACA.

The best thing about working for Pierce are:

Learning on the job! You learn something new every day whilst working with the friendly staff.

I can't get through a day at work without...

Millionaire slices or chocolate

If I hadn’t gone into accountancy, I would have been:

Either studying for a master’s degree or working in the outdoor industry.

Outside of work…

I love the mountains and anything to do with climbing. I also like Horse-riding from time to time.
