Because I’m located in the reception area, I get to have friendly chats with clients and I look forward to their visits.
After working in legal circles for many years, a combination of itchy feet and the need for a change in direction resulted in my moving over to the traditionally scorned rival of lawyers: Bean counters! Despite dire predictions of it all ending badly, I’ve discovered that life on the “dark side” as Kevin’s secretary / office manager / Jill-of-all-trades isn’t so bad; in fact I’ve been here for over seven years now and there’s not an itch in sight.
What do my three hats cover? In short, I ensure that incoming mail and messages regarding problems, queries etc go to the right person, I collate and lodge clients’ tax returns, try to make their fee payments less painful and post their assessment notices and various correspondence to them. I also cover a range of jobs that help BSN & Co run smoothly. Because I’m located in the reception area, I get to have friendly chats with clients and I look forward to their visits (some people find me prim but I’m in a drinking club with a running problem…).
the rest of the team
I worked in computer graphics as a designer till the late 90s and was then drawn back to the family practice. I have been working in accounting firms ever since
Overall, I have had experience working with various industries from transport and tradesmen to financial planners and service businesses..
It has been a breath of fresh air to work in an all adult, business environment. SO. MUCH. QUIETER.
There is nothing like a complete change of direction to refresh one’s perspective on work life.
Data Processor / Corporate Secretary
I am known by those around me to be a perfectionist which, as far as my line of work is concerned, is probably not such a bad thing.
I enjoy being a tutor in my parish, which involves teaching students how to spell, read and write Vietnamese.
Because I'm located in the reception area, I get to have friendly chats with clients and I look forward to their visits.
I’ve been involved in the management of the practice since 1996, assisted by a stable team of loyal, hardworking and capable colleagues.
