Scott Hughes


Job Title:Trainee Accountant

Brief overview of job role:

I will be working in the Business Services department whilst studying towards the ACA qualification.

My career journey:

I attained a BSc (Hons) degree in Biochemsitry from the University of York. Whilst at university, I decided against a future in scientific research or postraduate study and began to consider my other career options. It was at this point, I undertook my first internship at Pierce! Having enjoyed my time at Pierce, I decided to undertake a full-time ACA training agreement with them following the completion of my degree, and haven't looked back since.

The best thing about working for Pierce are:

The friendly and helpful staff.

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

A brew!

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

Most likely a research scientist or a doctor following my degree.

Outside of work…

I am a keen sportsman having played rugby and football for most of my life, however, I rarely play these days due to being particularly injury-prone!
