What is you role within Thomas Westcott?

I am an Accounting Technician in the Okehampton Office where I prepare Accounts, Tax Returns, VAT Returns, PAYE and bookkeeping. I have also just become Quickbooks Certified,  which means I will be able to assist our clients who have moved onto the new cloud based Quickbooks Intuit.


How long have you been working here?

I started in September 2002 straight after completing my A levels at Okehampton college – nearly fifteen years!


What do you like about working in the Okehampton office?

As a small office, we have a lot of contact with our clients on a daily basis, which means we really get to know about them and their business. I also get to work with people who are not only my colleagues, but who have become my friends. 


What do like to do outside of work?

Outside of work, I spend a lot of time with my two young children who are six and three. I also enjoying running when I get a chance and am hoping to do the half marathon next year. I am also a fan of Pilates and love music. 


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

My phone, a pack of cards and a massive bar of galaxy!


Do you have any hidden talents?

I can complete a Rubix Cube.


What do I like most about working at TW?

The work is always varied, and there is never chance to get bored.
