Alysha Waite, 24, is our Trainee Accountant and has been with the business for a little over two years.
Originally from Sheffield, but now residing in Worksop, she will soon be taking a break from her career to become a mum for the first time.
Prior to joining the Carlton Forest team Alysha was a qualified baker but changed career direction to do something for which she had always had a flair and an interest.
“When I first took on the role, I didn’t know anything about practical accounting other than that I wanted to learn all about it and become fully trained,” said Alysha. “It’s been great learning through work, and I was really pleased to achieve my Level 3 AAT apprenticeship which I completed last year. I shall look forward to resuming my learning and career path to becoming a Chartered Accountant once I return from maternity leave.”
Alysha works as part of the finance team at Carlton Forest Group and is responsible for much of the invoicing and day to day essential tasks to ensure payments are made and received on time.
“Carlton Forest Group is a great place to work, everyone is really friendly and supportive, and it creates a great working environment. I have learnt so much from them all.”
Kristina Callaghan, Accounts Manager commented; “Alysha is a key part of our finance team and has worked so hard to achieve her qualifications this far. We wish her every happiness as she takes a break to welcome her new baby and look forward to seeing her back with the team soon.”
Away from her calculator and spreadsheets, Alysha enjoys walking in the Peak District and spending quality time with her family.
