Serena Hall has joined us this week at JDA. We have welcomed Serena in as one of our Senior Accountants and have decided to catch up with her so she can tell you a little bit more about herself and what she expects from her time at JDA.

Ever since a secondary school teacher said that I would be a good accountant (I hope this is a compliment), I have strived to become one. I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2011 with a 2.1 degree and have been working in the industry ever since. Also, I am now a Certified, Chartered Accountant with ACCA. I actually used to work with Jon! Three and a half years ago I left Jon and his old firm, but since then quite a bit has changed.

Since last working with Jon I have had my daughter, Layla – who has not long turned one. So, there’s definitely one big change! I knew coming back off maternity that the transition back into working life might prove difficult, but with Jon I knew what to expect from my previous time working alongside him.

The team have also welcome me with open arms, and to be honest, I didn’t expect anything less from a JDA team. Everyone is relaxed, and there is always someone offering a cup of tea!

Besides the lovely amount of tea, I am looking forward to getting back to work, particularly in my new role as Senior Accountant, just from my first couple of hours in the office I am enjoying working alongside one of our Client Managers, Claire. It is really rewarding when you can offer a good service to clients, and even more so when you know that goal is shared with the people around you. For me, ensuring that clients stay legal and understand their businesses financial situation is what my role is all about!
