Responsibilities

Career
After my A-levels I joined a branch of RBS in my hometown of Walsall.  A couple of years later I decided I wanted a change and joined a firm of accountants in Birmingham as a tax junior.  I passed my ATT and then relocated to Manchester, joining Milner Boardman Ltd.  I qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) and moved to Champion Accountants in Worsley as part of their tax planning team.  Having spent nearly 5 years there I returned to Milner Boardman in October 2012.
