13 PROVES LUCKY NUMBER
13 PROVES LUCKY NUMBER FOR STUDENT ACCOUNTANTS Midlands HR and financial recruitment specialist Macildowie has celebrated its 13th year as the main sponsor of the Annual Dinner of the Nottingham Chartered Accountants Students Society (NCASS). The Dinner was this year held at the East Midlands Conference Centre, where 400 Nottingham students, lecturers and accountants gathered to enjoy fine dining, music and prestigious prize presentations led by Professor David Hunt, President of the Society. As well as contributing to the costs of the NCASS Annual Dinner and other social events, Macildowies sponsorship also helps finance some of the running of the Student Society itself, by contributing to administration team costs. This Society was created to support students through their studies and crucially provide them with employment advice to help them kick-start their professional careers. Were extremely grateful to the team at Macildowie for their crucial support, as without this type of funding from corporate sponsors, NCASS wouldnt be able to provide such an excellent support to its student members, explains Vice Chair of NCASS Matt Backler, who is also an assistant manager at Deloitte LLP. The current global financial climate is making entering the job market a daunting task for students. Were finding that help from societies like ours can make all the difference when getting a first foot on the career ladder. James Taylor, a director at Macildowie adds: The NCASS and its activities are important to us, as we always do our best to try to immerse ourselves in our clients culture and get involved where we can. With actual accountants on our team such as director James Calder, we are genuinely in tune with the challenges of the industry and able to help in ways other than simply providing roles for candidates.
