I worked in a small accountancy practice for 9 years and prior to that worked as an accountant in an economic consultancy for 10 years so I had experience in both industry and practice.
I joined TaxAssist Raheny in September 2017 just prior to the start of the tax season so it was a very busy time!
I joined as the Practice Manager. I now concentrate on preparing company accounts and working with business owners. I also meet potential new clients and try to sign them up.
We are part of a group that offers great support with a wealth of experience and knowledge available when we need to seek advice. There is a pleasant work atmosphere and my colleagues make it a good place to work.
I like the strategy of using computer software and technology to streamline our business. This makes our jobs easier and the whole practice more efficient.
Before I joined TaxAssist Accountants in Cork I worked as an OTC in a pharmacy for approximately 4 years. I started with TaxAssist in August 2011 as a trainee accountant. I progressed to junior accountant and then to senior accountant. I was promoted to Practice Manager in August 2019. Coincidentally this happened 8 years to the day since I joined the team as a trainee accountant!
I am delighted that opportunities for promotion are offered to the staff internally before hiring externally. I love the friendly environment of the TaxAssist office and there is great staff morale.
No two days are ever the same with the variety of tasks I get to undertake. I enjoy meeting with clients as this affords me the opportunity to really get to know them and work out how best we can assist their business.
I have seen TaxAssist Cork grow from a start-up business to a fully established accounting practice. Being part of this growth has given me valuable insight into the operation of a new business and I enjoyed being part of the amazing team that has made this happen. This experience I can pass on to our clients.
Before joining TaxAssist Accountants in 2016 I was working as a Trainee Accountant with an accountancy practice in Monaghan.
Originally, I started with TaxAssist in Walkinstown as a Trainee Accountant but have progressed to Senior Manager.
What I like most about working with TaxAssist is the exposure to varied tax and accounting experience, being able to work on my own and the friendly relaxed work environment.
I work with great people and there's brilliant formal and informal support network at all levels within the practice.
