Edina Bergendi

Accounts Assistant

I qualified with a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Finance from Comenius University, Bratislava in 2018, I have been a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), since 2022, and I am Xero Certified.

I think that there is something wonderful about studying for qualifications in a second language, of course it makes some aspects more difficult, but I believe that having to concentrate so much harder, makes understanding the subject matter more accessible. At least, it worked for me I am pleased to say.

Since moving to the UK, I have worked in a variety of businesses, always in finance positions of course, apart from the 18 months I spent as a hotel receptionist. It has always remained my ambition to work in finance, and I am enjoying my time at Signpost Financials. I think that my attention to detail, and analytical approach to task management helps me in my work, at least I hope it does!

 

How long have you been at Signpost Financials?

20 months
