How long have you worked with Ducketts?
I have just had my work anniversary this month – 7 years!
What’s your job title?
What’s the best thing about being part of the Ducketts team?
Ducketts is a great team, and everyone is part of it. I love the banter we have in the office, they do say that accountants are boring – well, not the ones at Ducketts!
What was your previous role and how does it help you in your day-to-day job now?
Previously, I was a university lecturer in Chemistry, and prior to that a Chemistry researcher at Cardiff University. From those roles I developed resilience, an analytical mind and attention to detail
What made you want to join Ducketts / Why did you join Ducketts?
I was looking for a career change, from Chemistry to accountancy. I imagine Chris thought that this transition is possible, as he also started as a scientist. I started at a very basic level, and worked my way through to becoming a fully qualified accountant a couple of years ago.
Favourite holiday destination?
It has to be Catalonia (my home land)!
Who's your hero?
The frontline workers
What's your passion outside of work?
Being outdoors, especially mushroom hunting in the Autumn, and also swimming in cold waters
When you were young, what did you want to be when you were older?
Last book you read?
Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz
Tell us something we don't know about you?
I play (or used to) the piano. My first job was as a pianist at a ballet school when I was 15. It didn’t last long, though.
