I am a qualified accountant with over twenty years experience in building financial models, utilising my skills to deliver cost reduction, restructing and outsourcing programmes within the telecoms, manufacturing and financial services sectors. During my 20 years as an accountant, I have implemented budgeting and forecasting, management reporting and project management procedures and documentation. I'm very flexible, having worked on very small projects - reconciling a year's worth of subscription banking transactions back to to the sales ledger - to very large projects - managing a GBP960m operating cost budget. My strengths lie in my ability to quickly assess what's required and get on with it. At the end of the day, you are my customer and I want to you to be delighted with the service I provide.

    “I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Sara. She has been amazing to work with. She's been exceptionally attentive to our needs and very patient with us. We are a start-up and after explaining some of the accounting challenges we were facing, Sara used her wealth of experience to build a bespoke accounting and project management model for us that we will be able to use for a very long time. We were a bit slow in giving her the information she needs, but she was still patient even when the project took much longer than expected. Her commitment to us has been exceptional and I would not hesitate to work with her again (if she'll have us). She also responded to emails very promptly and was always available on skype for a chat about the project. Sara doesn't dump any pre-packaged solutions on your company, she asks all the right questions to figure out exactly what you need, making her deliverables all the more useful for your project. Thanks again, Sara.”
