COMPANY: Hawsons Chartered Accountants

JOB TITLE: Corporate services manager

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE NEXT GENERATION CHAMBER EVENT AND WHY? I love taking part in the CPD sessions, and attended an in-person session pre-lockdown about communication styles and understanding how to communicate effectively with others - that was fascinating. More recently, the sandwich socials are a great way to get to know people better, have a laugh and break up the day when working from home!

WHICH NEXT GENERATION CHAMBER MEMBER DO YOU ADMIRE? WHY? Hannah Brady (The Brady Creative) is an inspiration – she set up her own business during a global pandemic and is doing really well with it. She isn’t afraid to confront the ‘real’ topics, and encourages others to do the same, especially with her engaging posts on LinkedIn. Hannah has made me (and I’m sure lots of others too) feel like it’s okay not to be okay 100% of the time, but still be doing your very best!

BACKGROUND –TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU! I joined Hawsons in 2013 after graduating from The University of Nottingham with a chemistry degree. I realised that while I loved the analysis and the problem solving, I didn’t want to work in a lab, which is where accountancy came in! I qualified as a chartered accountant in 2016 and became a manager in 2017, with my own portfolio of clients who I manage on a day-to- day basis.

WHAT DOES YOUR JOB INVOLVE? I have a portfolio of clients I work with to provide accountancy, audit and taxation

services, in addition to more specialist and ad- hoc assistance and advice. I look after several of our charity clients and all of our solicitors, as well as a variety of owner-managed businesses and corporate clients. As part of a team of managers, I also supervise staff completing client-facing work, and run various internal training sessions for the team.

WHY DID YOU JOIN NEXT GENERATION CHAMBER? To get to know other young professionals and business people in the area, and to take part in the CPD sessions to help with my ongoing development in business.

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU’VE LEARNED FROM NEXT GENERATION CHAMBER? It’s so hard to pick just one thing! I’ve learnt a lot from the various CPD sessions, which focus on both professional and personal development, but especially the softer skills sessions such as communication styles and self-care.
