I have a joint role at the firm, leading the team locally as a partner in Sheffield and also leading the special projects team growth nationally and in particular in the North, Midlands and Scotland. I am passionate about our firm, developing our people and building long term relationships with clients and the wider business community. I believe in a strong network and that collaboration and working together is the key to success.
In special projects, we are a large diverse group of high quality accountants who strengthen client finance teams during periods of change where there is a lack of capacity or expertise in house. We support on a short to medium term basis, for example, where there is a gap between recruitment of a key role, a lack of expertise in relation to new financial reporting standards or drafting statutory accounts, pressure around year end, the delivery of a new project in finance or improvements are needed to management reporting.
I set up the team after a number of years working in interim roles, so have great insight and understanding of the challenges faced by senior finance professionals and how to resolve these. Some of my most memorable in house experiences were overseas, working in Australia with a technology business who was launching a new product to the market and at GE Energy where I worked for two years in the UK and India in a group controller role.
I designed and launched our select community to grow our talent pool. These individuals are high quality finance professionals who want to work in a flexible agile way for clients on a project basis.
Outside of work, my family keep me very busy and I love cooking and the great outdoors.
