A bit about me

Hello, I’m Ben. I joined Ecovis as a school leaver at 18 after finishing my A Levels and have now worked here for 3 and a half years. I’ve grown into the role and been able to complete Level 3 and 4 of the AAT qualification and will be moving onto my ICAEW exams in the near future.

For my role, it’s incredibly important that I really listen my to clients’ queries and concerns to try to help get to the bottom of their problems. I make it a priority to get my work done in a timely manner too, that way I can ensure that clients get what they need sooner rather than later.

I really enjoy the problem solving nature of the work that we do. When looking at a set of accounts, if something has gone array I feel I can really get stuck into fixing it!

Personally speaking

Favourite hobbies

I’m an avid racer and will go karting frequently where I take part in championships. I’ve also recently gained an interest in golf, however, so far, my talent is lacking.

Alternative career choice

Realistically, it would be something to do with numbers, as I feel that is where I thrive. However, if I were to have a dream career, it would be a supporting role in a sports team, such as Formula One.

Favourite music
