“I maintain and control all aspects of the firm’s accounts and payroll, and ensure compliance with Lexcel and the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority rules regarding client money.”
As the firm’s legal cashier, I provide monthly budgets, cashflow statements and management accounts as well as annual financial reports to the finance director. In 2017, I implemented the smooth transition of our existing accounting software to a new system – transferring all financial information across to a more advanced programme. I assist with and resolve all internal financial queries, and provide support for my colleagues.
Before joining Martin Searle Solicitors, I worked as an accounts and payroll manager for many years. Whilst my children were small, I studied manual book keeping and a three-year part-time AAT accountancy course at Eastbourne College.
In my free time, I like to exercise my creativity. I love to knit, crochet and teach myself new crafts. I also attend tap and ballet classes twice a week, and enjoy reading when I get the chance – a good thriller is my genre of choice.
