What do you do day to day?

Organise the team, plan work flow, provide guidance, advice, training and assistance to the team, accounts preparation, reconciliations, VAT returns and tax planning.

What qualifications and experience do you have?

Part qualified FCA and qualified by experience. I have been working in accountancy since January 1990 in a variety of firms, both big and small. I have experience with primarily SMEs but also some large businesses covering all aspects of accounts, corporate taxes and personal taxes.

What do you like about working here?

We are like a family and everyone is willing to help everyone else. No big egos.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not working?

Very keen on DIY and have a lot of projects on the go – currently replacing the worn out decking in the garden. I am king of the flat-pack and built most of the office furniture. I love playing board games with the family – we joke the only reason we had kids is to have more to play games with! I enjoy quizzes and finding new and interesting ales – frequently combining these at pub quizzes. I’m also very outdoorsy and love hiking and camping.
