Carrie Hall ACCA FMAAT
Client Manager (CH)
Carrie Hall ACCA FMAAT is one of the Client Managers at JDA. She looks after our clients to make sure all of their accounts and tax returns are up-to-date, and all of their queries are answered. Carrie joined us after 13 years at Brookson, where she had a portfolio of 70 clients.
We caught up with Carrie to find out a bit more about her.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy spending my time with my family; my husband Nick and our two children; Zoe and Luke. If I get any other free time to myself, I like to run! I’m a member of Widnes Running Club and enjoy training with them each week and taking part in weekend events wearing the team colours.
Where is your favourite place?
I should probably say the island of Capri where my now husband proposed but I do have a soft spot for all things Thailand and would love to go back there one day.
What is your favourite food and the food you dislike the most?
I’m not fussy so anything usually goes but if I had to pick something to dislike I’d say roast lamb.
Tell me an interesting fact about yourself
When I was 16, I went on the Mark and Lard Radio One breakfast show (showing my age there) and met David Bowie.
What did you want to do when you were growing up?
I really wanted to work for MI5 as an intelligence officer – I used to love watching the TV programme Spooks! Either that or work for the police in some capacity. I applied to do both when I was straight out of university but alas neither went my way so accountancy it was!
Tell us about your role
I’m a Client Manager, so I have a portfolio of clients that I look after, and along with the assistance of the JDA accountants I will ensure that all of the client deadlines are met; accounts, VAT returns, self-assessments etc. I’m also available to discuss any accountancy queries or ideas that they may have relating to them individually and/or their limited companies.
What do you like about working at JDA
I like working with the wide variety of clients that JDA has and getting to know them and their business on an individual basis. The team here are also very friendly, supportive and professional.
