Whilst studying his A-Levels, Bradley took the opportunity to take part in the PwC IOM Summer Internship Programme, which led to him joining PwC full time as an Audit Associate.
“I remember in my very early teens we found this article in an English newspaper that talked about how there were jobs you could start straight from school, being paid and gaining work experience, while also getting a degree-level qualification all in the same amount of time as going to university. So from that moment going to university didn’t interest me in the slightest. We looked into what was available in the same vein on the Isle of Man and the main options to do this were in accountancy.”
Since joining PwC IOM in 2016, Bradley has undertaken and completed the ACCA qualification over 4 years, and is now Audit Senior Associate. During his studies at Manx Professional & Educational Services (MPES), Bradley passed his exams first time and went on to achieve the best mark in the world for his final exam, ACCA Advanced Audit & Assurance Exam (ACCA AAA).
PwC IOM have been extremely supportive for Bradley in terms of balancing his study, with his workload and also funding all of his exams.
“I love my job and I feel very fortunate that I have got a job I enjoy because I know not everyone is able to experience that. The social life is great. We have a group of really great people and we enjoy each other’s company outside of work. The firm put on lots of social occasions that are always great fun.”
