Nikki Takes the Wheel in Her New Career


Nikki has been a rally co-driver for many years, sitting in the co-pilots seat of her father’s car.

Recently she bought a rally car of her own, which will let her step into the driver’s seat. But the racetrack isn’t the only place that Nikki is taking the wheel.  

In her quest for a more fulfilling career, Nikki chose to study at The Career Academy. ‘The team at The Career Academy really know how to support and guide people towards their goals.’ Nikki says. Every student at The Career Academy receives one-on-one time with one of our student advisors prior to enrolling, unlimited tutor support when they’re working through their course, and get access to the Career Centre after they graduate, who are there to help students find their dream job.

Eventually she completed the Certificate in Accounts Administration and Payroll, the Certificate in Accounting, and the AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting.

Not only did these courses let her learn the tools of the trade in a flexible online learning environment, they also gave her the invaluable industry accreditations that make the difference when it comes to getting offered a job over another candidate. Through her course, Nikki was able to become a fully qualified Accounting Technician, as well as gaining membership to the Institute of Public Accountants.

With these qualifications under her belt (or rather her helmet), Nikki went on the job hunt. With her skills, it wasn’t long before she was able to find a job at Robinson Interiors, who provide fit outs for super yachts. Between her new role and the rally car driving is making a life of working with vehicles that most of us would only dream of. Her day to day involves daily office management, PAing to the CEO, as well as performing the main financial functions for the business, all thanks to the skills she learned at The Career Academy.

In fact, we here at The Career Academy were so impressed with her skills that we went on to offer her a job as an Accounting Tutor. It was a great fit, since Nikki had gone through the courses herself, and was of course able to offer some sage advice as a former student. And it goes without saying that she loved the role! There’s nothing more rewarding than being able to focus on helping people along their own education journey.

Nikki wasn’t the first former student who went on become a tutor, and she certainly won’t be the last. If you want to follow her tracks, you can enrol in the Certificate in Accounting to learn the fundamentals of accounting, and then go on to the AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting to learn even more advanced skills.
