Emma Connolly


Position within firm – Accounts Manager

What do you do?

I’m an Accounts Manager and look after a range of clients from owner managed businesses to Limited companies.

Day to day can range from preparing annual accounts, completing quarterly VAT returns, assisting clients with migrating their accounting records from desktop programmes to cloud accounting solutions such as Xero, to helping with the growth and development of trainee team members within the accounts team.

What do you enjoy most about your job/ what motivates you to get up in the morning?

I love the satisfaction of being able to help clients with their accounting problems and find solutions to their ever changing needs.

I enjoy working closely with clients year after year to build strong relationships and help them to achieve their financial goals.

What projects do you work on?

I have been involved in implementing new accounting systems at several clients and then subsequently training the clients on how to use the software and get the most benefit from it.

I really enjoy this aspect of the job and seeing the improvements in the businesses day to day running from keeping up to date and accurate financial information.

I have also been involved with forecasting on several clients businesses to enable the business owners to more accurately predict how their companies will perform in the future.

What is on top of your bucket list?

I love being outdoors and have always quite fancied the idea of climbing a mountain – if only for the peace and quiet that I hope would be waiting for me at the top as well as the fantastic views!

Once I’ve climbed a mountain, next up would be getting a pygmy goat  as my least favourite gardening task is mowing the lawn.
