This month we meet one of our Honiton based staff members, IT & Accounts Specialist/ Cloud Accounting guru, Robin Marchant......

What is you role within Thomas Westcott?

I assist clients/staff with computer accounting/payroll related queries, which includes initial setup/training and ongoing support. I also help clients with VAT Returns, management accounts and just recently Auto Enrolment seems to have become a key area that I’m involved in.

How long have you been working here?

For quite some time - let’s just say that I received the final long service award a few years ago and leave it at that!

What do you like about working in the Honiton office?

The variety of clients keeps each day fresh, my work colleagues are an amazing collection of humans and I live in walking distance of the office!

What do you do outside of work?

Most of my time is taken up with family related shenanigans, but when I do find a free slot I enjoy reading, movies, cycling and swimming (usually in that order!).

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 items would you take with you?

Bear Grylls (survival sorted, although I fear for the local wildlife), satellite phone with internet and a helicopter.

Do you have any hidden talents?

Glass engraving and origami – the origami has proven useful in the office, not so much the engraving.

What do you like most about working at TW?

Variety of client work and having the opportunity to decide what field of work is best suited to me. These are interesting times right now, with cloud accounting, auto enrolment and the advent of Making Tax Digital almost upon us. Technology has always been a key part of my role (and something that I’ve always embraced) and it’s encouraging to know that TW has always been open to new ideas and solutions. Did I mention about the amazing/supportive individuals that I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the years……


Thanks Robin! some great answers there, although I'm not sure if Bear Grylls counts as an 'item' but he certainly would be useful on a desert island! For more information on how we can help with one of Robin's specialist subjects Cloud Accounting please CLICK HERE for more details.
