What do you do?
I am a Senior Associate within the Service Charge team at CP. I manage a number of clients in my position and within service charge these clients are managing agents. We are appointed by these managing agents to prepare and certify service charge accounts for both commercial and residential sites. My day-to-day role involves dealing with several of the clients needs which will involve reviewing service charge expenditure and raising any queries where necessary.
Why do you do it?
When I was first starting out as an accountant as a teenager, I had the opportunity to work within different teams within the business. Service charge was something I was not expecting to like but soon enough I began to really enjoy it! It is a real niche area of accounting and is very interesting when you begin to really understand it. Long story short, I have been working within service charge for 7 years and have loved every minute.
What kind of projects have you been involved in?
Based on the structure of our team, everyday is a new challenge. You may find yourself working on different clients/projects from one week to the next. This helps us understand the business as a whole and gain experience with different client.
What’s on top of your bucket list?
It’s very hard to pin-point one. I have lots of bucket list ideas! If I was put on the spot, I think I would have to say: I would really love to surf a wave in Hawaii! Don’t ask me why, I have never surfed in my life, but I guess that’s why its top of my bucket list.
