Senior Accountant (SO)
Sarah Owens is one of the brightest young accountants in Liverpool. She even has a certificate to prove it! She won Best Financial Accounting Student of 2016 at Liverpool John Moore University, where she graduated with a First Class Degree in Accounting and Finance before Jon snapped her up to join his team.
We caught up with Sarah to find out a bit more about her.
What do you like to do outside of work?
When I’m not hard at work or studying with ACCA to become a certified accountant, I like to spend time with my nephew Jackson. I also enjoy travelling – in fact I’ve just planned my next trip to New York.
Where is your favourite place?
My favourite place is Chicago because of the friendly people and all the street food. It was all delicious and I can’t wait to visit again.
What is your favourite food and the food you dislike the most?
My favourite foods are chocolate and Chinese food. There isn’t enough time to list my least favourite foods as I’m very, very fussy but I guess my least favourite food is red meat.
Tell me an interesting fact about yourself
When I was at John Moores University, I won the Best Financial Accounting Student award in my final year of studying.
What did you want to do when you were growing up?
I never dreamed of becoming an accountant – I actually wanted to be a weather woman when I was younger.
Tell us about your role
I’m a Client Manager which means that I have a portfolio of clients and for each of these clients I am the first person they call if any they have any questions or queries regarding business, accounts and tax.
What do you like about working at JDA
I enjoy working with Jon – he gives great advice and guidance when it comes to me learning and developing in my role. [Note to Jon – give her a pay rise!]
The team here is also great – I enjoy working with them day to day.
