    Just a suggestion - Are you able to make it 16 hours per week? People working 16 hours or more per week are entitled to WFTC, if you work less than that you don't get it. When I've advertised for staff before I've always had to make it at least 16 hours pw to get any interest at all.

    It's slightly for this reason that we have said approx 15hrs. As we can then go up to 16 hours for those who require it.

    Will keep it in mind though for if we don't get much interest.

    Thanks

    Hi Ian,

    I was just wondering how your hunt for your trainee has gone? I read your post with interest when I found that you are based so close to me! You are the first person I've found on the forums local to myself!

    I would also like to say congratulations on your award nomination, it is good to see something so positive on here and such success is an inspiration to those of us who are still studying - it reminds us of what it is possible to achieve with the AAT qualification behind us.

    Hi Sparkly,

    No not many of us from Gloucestershire on here. I only know of one other, cannot recall his name at present. I think some of us stick to particular areas of the forum and don't come across others that may be local to us for this reason.

    It is good to find others from the local area though. What level are you currently studying at? Are you currently employed in a related role? If so are you finding that it compliments your study nicely? If not then I wish you every success in finding suitable employment.

    The search is going ok. It's been with the Job Centre for around a week or so and went in The Citizen and Echo yesterday and the Forrester today. We have found one person who would be very suited but are waiting to see others.

    Thank you for your kind words about the nomination.
    Regards,

    Burg

    Sorry, I can remember plenty about you but just not your name.

    You still making that long trek over to Fairford?

    Hope things are going well?

    Hi Ian,

    I saw the article on you in the Review newspaper so it seems your PR is working :)

    I'm studying technician level but still have a lot of work to do as I still have the skills tests from the previous two levels to complete, and the dreaded unit 10 project! I think because I have done this on my own via distance learning I have not been quite as disciplined as I would have been if I'd had college to keep me on track!

    I am lucky that my work fits in nicely with my studies. I work in Lydney for a manufacturing company where I am involved in, amongst other things, purchase ledger, external and government reporting and quite heavily involved in month end closing. My boss is very supportive of me and sneakily adds to my workload so I don't get chance to get scared of the extra responsibility she is giving me!

    Kelly

    ps Hi Neil!!

    Not from Gloucestershire myself - couldn't even find it on a map of the UK to be honest - but the only other person I know who ever came from there was a certain Fred West.

    Thanks Blobbyh.

    Glad to see we are famous for something!

    Our rugby team has a habit of finishing top of the premiership and then losing in the 'final', where first plays second to see who is the overall winner. Stupid system if you ask me!

    Cheltenham probably is a bit more famous due to the Gold Cup (Horse racing).

    I had a college lecturer (not accounting) who had been a neighbour of his!
