MAKING finance fun isn’t always easy, but Muir’s youngest Finance Officer says he’s enjoying scaling new heights with the Association.
Anthony Jenkins joined Muir in November 2016 and is receiving support from the Association to achieve the qualifications he needs to fulfil his potential.
The 22-year-old took no time at all to settle in, quickly becoming a popular member of his team.
And while he admits life as a Finance Officer isn’t quite as close to the edge as his abseiling activities, Anthony is still overcoming the challenges he faces while Muir holds the ropes.
“I like facing my fears,” said Anthony, “Which is why I probably enjoy things like abseiling and white-water rafting.
“It’s great to do outdoor activities, but it’s also cool making sure your figures add up.
“It was a good career move coming to Muir – they’ve helped me a lot.
“Whatever I’ve asked for in terms of training or learning new things, they’ve been able to give me that.
“Muir are happy to put the effort in to help me as long as they can see that I’m putting the effort in too.
“I’m learning a lot by being here. It’s challenging, but I’m working with good people in a place that offers opportunities to grow.”
The Liverpool-supporting football fan is currently getting support from Muir as he works towards his ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) qualifications – giving Anthony the skills and confidence he needs to progress – having already achieved his AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) award.
Despite all the hard work Anthony puts into everything, he still finds some time to relax, enjoying European city breaks to destinations such as Rome and Barcelona, as well as the odd expedition in Snowdonia.
Since joining Muir’s Capital and Assets Team at the Association’s Chester HQ, Anthony has also started tackling a few 5k fun runs with members of his team.
“We get on well,” Anthony added. “Muir is a friendly place to work and I’m happy to be helping make a difference.”
