Excellent customer service, accountancy skills and advisory skills.
I joined Wintersgill in April 2015 and subsequently Northern Accountants from November 2019
Immediately prior to joining NA I was fortunate enough to be in a position to take a career break to care for my young daughters. Prior to that, and after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, I worked for a large practice in Manchester and then Leeds as an Audit and Business Assurance Senior and latterly Audit and Business Assurance Manager auditing and advising multi million pound turnover businesses.
Going the extra mile to help clients save tax and to help them solve business problems that are potentially getting in the way of running their businesses.
The flexible working arrangements. I feel that flexibility is the key to enable working parents to successfully juggle work life and personal life.
The interesting and challenging work. The opportunities to get out of the office and visit clients to further understand their businesses and develop relationships. The fantastic use of technology to free up time for the important business conversations.
The sense of achievement when looking back on the week and noting the occasions where I have been able to help my colleagues and clients.
To look back and feel that I have made a difference to those that I have worked alongside and to my clients.
I am lucky to live in a beautiful Yorkshire village with my husband, two daughters and house bunny, Shuffles.
Little Mix. Chosen by my children but I do like them too and am more than happy to sing along!
The Queen for afternoon tea. I would like to understand how she juggles her many roles so well.
Don’t worry so much about qualifications and have fun whilst young!
Meeting Alex Ferguson on one of my first assignments as an audit junior and having absolutely no idea who I was talking to (football isn’t my thing!).
Negativity, moaning and complaining!
I don’t have a particular role model but I am inspired by all women who are successfully juggling a career and a family.
Hard working, trustworthy, reliable, honest and organised.
Wham (guilty secret), homemade cakes, Love Actually (just before Christmas), Wuthering Heights, Killing Eve.
I’ve now asked you to three times so I’m going to count to three (at home and not at work!)
For ages when I’m on holiday. I love the feeling of turning off my mobile phone at the start of a break and properly relaxing.
My family (husband, daughters and house bunny), my favourite books and lots of chilled cava!
