What do you do?
My day to day role involves delivering a high-quality service to my portfolio of clients, managing my teams that are onsite delivering the service, and ensuring they have all the resources and help they need to meet my clients’ expectations as well as meeting their own personal targets.
Why do you do it?
I enjoy working in the profession because you get the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life with differing personalities. I enjoy working with numbers and really trying to understand what it is that drives the numbers that we are essentially reporting on. I love the Cooper Parry culture, you’re in control of your own development and I’m able to balance my work life with my personal life. The team I work with is second to none and passionate about what they do.
What kind of projects have you been involved in?
The main day to day projects are delivering year end audits and financial statements to tight deadlines. During the latter part of the year I am involved in the audit of academy schools which is a 4 month turnaround period, although we generally have approximately 10 weeks to complete everything ready for submission so this throws in lots of challenges. Because of mine and the department’s expertise in this area we’re able to work closely with clients in meeting all relevant deadlines. I’ve had instances where we’ve been up against it right to the wire but I have always met the deadline, even where clients may have given up.
What’s on top of your bucket list?
Learn to swim. I’ve just never got to grips with swimming all my life despite trying a number of times and now that I have two young children who love swimming I’d like to learn as well.
