Julie Terry – Company Secretarial Department
Company Secretarial Manager
“Starting a new job in ‘normal’ circumstances can be quite daunting, starting a new job from home is even more daunting! However, Charterhouse (Accountants) Limited made it so easy. I had a really informative induction which helped a lot and I got to meet my team members on a zoom call on my first day. I was assigned a buddy which made asking questions so much easier. Everyone in the team is so polite and extremely helpful which makes it so much more comfortable for me to ask questions… even the silly ones! I particularly enjoy that we have a weekly team zoom catch up where we can get to know each other better through different activities and catching up on any work matters that need addressing. Looking forward for things to go back to ‘normal’ and getting to meet my colleagues in person!”
