New Kid On The Block - Meet Our New Audit and Accounts Junior

There's a new kid on the block here at Raffingers. Meet Madhavan, our new Audit and Accounts Junior! To celebrate this new arrival into the Raffingers team, we thought we'd give our readers an insight into our new team member so that you can learn more about him and discover his plans for the future of Raffingers.  

1. What was your job role before joining us?

My last role was at my father’s company where I worked as an account assistant. I helped automate financial processes and I helped with admin work.

2. Talk us through your prior experience?

I have had a range of experiences, from virtual online internships at big 4 firms to work experience at smaller companies. From these experiences, I learned a range of new skills within accountancy, banking, and data analytics. However, my recent experience as an Account Assistant gave me the best insight into what I wanted to do in the future, which is accountancy. Here, I studied and applied accounting knowledge within the company and learned the roots of how a business records its profits.

3. What interested you about this role?

I was interested in this role for many reasons, first of most is the range of clients you work with which really appealed to me. I was also impressed by the positive work culture at the company which is an important part of any business. From doing prior experience within the field, I saw this role as the perfect opportunity to further my career to become a fully chartered accountant.

4. What are you looking forward to doing most in the coming year/s?

I am looking forward to growing my career by continuously learning and applying my knowledge gained from studying the ACCA into a practice environment.

5. Do you have any hobbies outside of work? If so, what are they?

I run my two eCommerce businesses (accessories and clothing), which I aim to grow over the next few years. I also play badminton every week and am a piano player in professional venues.  

6. What was your route like into accountancy?

My route stemmed from doing an accountancy work experience when I was 16, I then undertook an economics and finance degree at university where I enjoyed learning about the financial statements of a company within the business accounting module. From here, I decided to pursue a career in accounting.

7.  A fun fact about yourself?

I started playing the piano when I was 3, and now I am lucky to be given numerous opportunities to play the piano at venues across London.

8. Who inspires you?

The two people that inspire me are my parents as they have always motivated me and taught me principles and values which I still follow to this day. They have also taught me to never give up and follow my dreams regardless of how crazy they may be.

9. What’s the best book you’ve read recently?

The best book I have read recently is ’12 rules for life’ written by Jordan Peterson (my favourite public speaker). This is because it was beautifully written and very inspiring, the book was an excellent balance between history and his famous personal anecdotes.

10. What’s something you’re proud of?

I am proud of growing a business from scratch to a £12,000 annual revenue. From being entrepreneurial at a young age, I have always been looking for ways to maximise the resources in front of me. So, in 2016, I started a phone case business which had its ups and downs at the start, but by doing heavy research and learning how to make the most of social media, I was able to make this business go from no sales a day to almost 4/5 a day in 2021.

11. What’s your idea of a perfect workday?

My ideal perfect workday would be to deliver all of my work to a high standard as well as make a positive impact on all the clients I will work with. The most important part of a perfect workday for me is learning more than the day before, I would like to be challenged and put out of my comfort zone to further my growth.

12. If you could have dinner with 3 celebs dead or alive, who would they be?

  • Jordan Peterson – This is due to his unique perspective of life which I find to be unique.
  • AR Rahman – I have always been fond of music and playing the piano and AR Rahman has been my favourite composer since I was very young.
  • Elon Musk – I have always been fascinated by his work ethic and vision for his business. Even when most people doubted him, he continued to pursue his dreams and grow Tesla into a trillion-dollar company.

13. If you were an animal, what one would you be and why?

I would be a Lion as they are good leaders and determined. They are also strategic thinkers and have the natural instinct to protect their pack.  

14. Where do you see the world of accountancy in years to come?

I can see the future of accounting becoming more complex due to a few reasons. The first is because of technology. As technology continues to advance future accountants will need further education in digital technology to adapt to the future. Certain industries such as Audit can also be autonomous and taken over by technology which can steer the accounting industry in a different direction.
