A bit about me

Hello, I’m Ed. I joined the Outsourced Business Services team at Ecovis after graduating from university in 2018 and am ACCA part-qualified. Clients that don’t have an in-house finance professional rely on our expertise because we provide them with meaningful insights into their business. This adds value to our service and enables our clients to have greater control of their operations.

I enjoy working with my varied portfolio of clients; from FCA regulated businesses to tech start-ups, there is a wide range of clients that give me greater awareness of how management accounting works. I think this is a huge benefit to us as trainees because of the experiences we get out of it.

On top of this, the sheer variety of clients I work with really keeps me on my toes. Plus, the culture we have in the office is an added bonus because it provides a great work hard play hard environment.
