Michael Addison - Treasury and Capital Accountant
"Before Muir, I had no finance experience except for my Association of Accounting Technicians qualification. I was very open in my interview that I wanted to go on to further studies to become a fully qualified accountant.
"Muir offered me a role that would include the support to achieve my goal of becoming qualified.
"I’m currently completing my Association of Chartered Accountant studies and I’m in a role which has developed over time to be both challenging and rewarding.
"I’m enjoying working at Muir and my fellow colleagues are a good bunch and very supportive."
Sophie Whittingham - Development Manager
"Muir were happy to take me on without any previous experience in the industry but since then I've been given lots of opportunities to develop.
"I've learnt a lot on the job and received formal training too, as well as job swaps and shadowing others.
"I've been given the chance to use skills I've learnt in other roles and I'm really enjoying working here."
Megan Moss - Compliance Officer
"I began working at Muir in July 2019 as an Apprentice.
"With the help of the Apprenticeship Scheme and staff members within Muir, I have been able to develop both my knowledge and skills within the Housing Sector, whilst gaining a qualification in Level 2 Housing Practice.
"I became permanently employed by Muir as a Property Services Assistant and have since progressed to become a Compliance Officer.
"Everybody within the team was very welcoming and I am grateful for every opportunity."
