Meet our Trainee Chartered Accountant

Alice McNab

Name: Alice McNab

Role: Trainee Chartered Accountant working in the audit team

Time at Saffery: 4 years


What’s the best bit about your job?

The variation of clients we get to work with. One day you can be working with a large corporate client, and the next you can be working with a charity. Although the premise of an audit remains the same, clients’ operations and processes are never the same, which makes the job interesting. I find it extremely rewarding to build relationships with our clients and understand how their businesses work.

 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’m very much a team player. My colleagues know me to be a very approachable person, who is willing to help those in the team. I also assist with a lot of our internal training which allows me to get to know our new trainees.

I’d also like to think I am a dependable person, so my colleagues know they can rely on me to get the job done in the time frame required.

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

I really like sharks, so I’d love to have been a marine biologist!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I am a very active person and enjoy playing netball – I’ve played for the same team since 2018! I am also a big formula one fan so like to spend the race weekends sat on the sofa watching 20 cars drive around a track!

Tell us something about yourself that we don’t know

I have been a book worm my entire life and it’s something I love to do in my down time. My current total for the year, at the time I am writing this, is 37 books!

Who or what inspires you?

My dad. Not only for his 26-year service for our country in the army, but through his continued strength and determination in his personal life. His support and guidance throughout my life is the reason I am where I am today.

What’s your favourite place in Dorset?

I feel like everyone says the same, but Durdle Door would be my favourite. I have good memories of taking my family’s oldest dog there (a working cocker spaniel named Oreo) who has a huge love for the beach and the sea.
