“Being given the opportunity to move into the payroll department was a huge benefit to me.”
— Colleen Hutton, payroll trainee
“I joined Thomson Cooper in 2018 working in the reception team as an Administration Assistant. After building my skills and experience I was given the opportunity to join the payroll department as a trainee in 2020. I have learned so much, helping the team to migrate to a new software platform and sitting Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals exams to achieve a CIPP Advance Technician Diploma.”
