Hi, I'm Molly

Bournemouth University

I’m one of two Finance: Statutory and Tax Reporting Interns. I study Accounting and Taxation at Bournemouth University so this role was very relevant in relation to what I’ve learned during my studies and also what I want to do when I graduate. Even after a gap year, choosing to delay final year and do a work placement was always the plan for me – not just because of the new knowledge I’d gain from applying accounting concepts I’d used almost exclusively in lectures and exams, but so I could experience life as a professional (not like any job full or part-time I’d had before!). Warner Bros. was my ideal placement from the start! The employees here are happy, there’s a great work-life balance, and interns are recognised as a very valuable asset.

Describe a normal day in the office…

There are two interns with my job title and our roles are quite similar, but we are responsible for different entities within Warner Bros. There is so much variation in my role, which I love! My main duties are: statutory account preparation, monthly Intrastat preparation, Irish VAT preparation every two months, quarterly VAT for a couple entities, iXBRL tagging, helping with ETBs (extended trial balances), tax packs… the list goes on!

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I love the variation of tasks, the huge number of new concepts I’ve learned and the responsibility I have. I feel valued and part of a great team.

What’s your favourite WB film/TV show/game?

Crazy, Stupid, Love.

What’s been a highlight for you so far?

The finance team are on the fifth floor and for the past few weeks we’ve been competing in the Great Fifth-Floor Bake Off. Even though my oven baking skills are shocking, it’s been a lot of fun. The highlight more specific to my role was when I first sent off a set of statutory accounts to Companies House, which was really rewarding since I’d learned how everything had been consolidated over the entity’s financial year.
