Time at Saffery: Nearly 8 years

What’s the best bit about your job?

The most rewarding aspect of my job is the opportunity to assist people with their taxes. It can be very fulfilling to help provide clarity and guidance in an area that can often seem complex and daunting. I like helping to alleviate concerns and give peace of mind knowing their tax matters are in good hands.

The culture of Saffery is really important to the business and the people within it – what do you think you bring to the team and what do you contribute?

I really enjoy mentoring individuals, helping them to unlock their potential and thrive and progress in their roles using their unique set of talents.

I have also completed several mental health in the workplace qualifications, and I am a mental health first aider. I understand the importance of a positive and supportive working environment. It is important to ensure the workplace is not just productive but also a place where everyone feels valued and supported.

If you weren’t doing this role, what might you be doing?

An outdoor pursuits instructor.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Paddle boarding, canyoning, bodyboarding, camping with friends and spending time with my family.

Tell us something about yourself that we don’t know

I am a blackbelt at kickboxing and so are all three of my children.

Who or what inspires you?

A partner who has recently retired, Liz Brierley, has made a lasting impression on me. Liz has exceptional professionalism, genuine warmth and a remarkable ability to communicate clearly and with a real vision of the bigger picture. Liz’s qualities have motivated me and set a high standard that I aspire to reach in my own professional journey.
