C career testimonial

I cannot believe how much I have learnt

“After leaving university I knew I wanted a career in accounts and after interviewing at a few firms I chose Cottons because it was most inline with what I wanted for my career. I liked the people I met and how the training would be delivered. I have been here for over a year now and can not believe how much I have learnt in that time!”
