Daniel Purdy is a Trainee Administrator in our Restructuring and Insolvency team. He joined the firm in September 2019 as an apprentice through the Accounting Technicians Ireland course run by Belfast Met.

Daniel says, “An apprenticeship with Belfast Met was definitely the right route for me and I’m glad that I entered the workplace early. Since starting with Baker Tilly Mooney Moore, I have developed significantly, both personally and professionally.

“The firm is passionate about career progression. I feel supported and have experienced key areas of the business. I’m being given an incredibly broad overview that will be of great benefit when it comes to sitting exams and progressing my career.”

“Had I gone to university, I would still be studying at this point. Instead, I have begun a career with a leading provider of Accountancy and Advisory services and am gaining invaluable industry experience. Baker Tilly Mooney Moore’s Restructuring and Insolvency team specialises in providing focused, tailored solutions to debt related issues. With so many businesses facing financial difficulty during the pandemic, I’m proud to be part of a solution.

“It is important to highlight that university is not the only route into Accountancy.  For anyone who is torn between academia and an apprenticeship, I would recommend enrolling in Belfast Met’s Higher- Level Apprenticeship in Accountancy.”

Baker Tilly Mooney Moore’s Restructuring and Insolvency Partner, Darren Bowman, says, “Daniel has proven to be a valuable addition to our department. At Baker Tilly Mooney Moore, we are passionate about nurturing our employees’ career progression and ensure that all of our recruits are given a well-rounded view of the business.”
