Our blog post this week comes from Misbah Shikdar, a BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance student currently on placement with Bosch. Here he gives us a glimpse into his daily role, as well as his tips for securing a placement with a market leading company.
Hi I’m Misbah, and I’m currently four months into my placement at Bosch UK as a Finance Assistant.
My job role requires me to assist my manager and team leader (who are both great) on different areas. I take part in various finance projects, as well as liaising with and providing guidance and advice to non-financial staff of the organisation. From the accounting side of things, my manager takes care of the financial aspects, whereas the team leader works on management accounting. Therefore, I am gaining invaluable experience on both sides of accounting which is perfect for me, and what a placement is all about.
