Craig Billington
Accountancy graduate Craig developed a passion for numbers while working for his father’s business. Enrolling on the Accountancy programme at Edge Hill, not only gave Craig greater skills and knowledge of the profession that he needed to take his career forward, he also found the patience, rigour and discipline required to do a degree had a positive impact on his employability.

Craig now works for an Accountancy firm in Burscough, where he has been instrumental in introducing IT-related cloud based accounting which is setting the business apart from its competitors.

“What resonates with me in terms of ‘soft skills’ is the need to understand and learn about working in a team. The skills that were instilled in me at University – leadership, problem-solving, communications and working cohesively – are applicable to my current role.”
