Phoebe Cranmer shortlisted at Women in Accountancy & Finance awards

We are delighted that Forrester Boyd trainee accountant Phoebe Cranmer has been shortlisted for the Woman of the Year - Technician award at the Women in Accountancy and Finance awards 2020.

Phoebe has been with the company since 2015, during which time she has worked hard to balance her studies with her office work. She became AAT qualified in 2017 and is now in training to become an ICAEW chartered accountant, with only her final exams to go.

She is also passionate about helping other young people embrace the opportunities available in the accountancy sector, talking at local colleges, recently being part of a steering group for a young talent network in the Humber region and becoming a ‘vlog star’ for the ICAEW.

Phoebe’s passion and dedication to her role was noticed from a very early stage by partners and other members of staff at Forrester Boyd.

“Phoebe is extremely dedicated in promoting her experience and knowledge to the younger generation,” said senior partner Kevin Hopper.

“She has a real affinity with people when she talks at schools and colleges, or assists in internal and external mentoring. It is very easy to notice that they listen and take a keen interest in what she has to say.

“Phoebe is therefore a fantastic ambassador for women in accountancy and the profession as a whole and the partners are proud of her achievements to date.”

HR manager Chantelle Rogers added, “Phoebe is exactly the kind of representation the accounting world requires, someone who is clearly intelligent but also sociable, kind and passionate about her role. It is clear that she has a very bright future ahead of her.”

Congratulations to Phoebe on being deservedly shortlisted. We wish her the best of luck at the awards ceremony on 6th May 2020.
