Meet our latest addition – Wayne Roberts. We are thrilled to welcome Wayne to the JDA team. Wayne is one of our Senior Accountants who supports our Client Managers in ensuring our JDA Clients receive exceptional service. Wayne joins us with over 29 years of experience in accountancy.

We caught up with Wayne to find out a bit more about him.

What do you like to do outside of work? 

I love the outdoors! In my spare time, you can find me walking along the beach and in the countryside. I’m a member of the National Trust, so I spend most of my weekends visiting the UK’s beauty hotspots. Aside from that, I enjoy spending time with my friends, playing and watching snooker and even crazy golf!

Where is your favourite place? 

The best place I’ve been to is the Maldives. The clear waters, sandy feet and the relaxation tick all of my boxes.  I’d love to go to China, India, and Australia because they are far away. I’d like to experience the different cultures and cuisines. There are lots of lovely places in the UK that I also love such as New Brighton, Cornwall, and the Lake District.

What is your favourite food and the food you dislike the most? 

Easy! My mum’s spaghetti bolognese! I’m not a fussy eater – I like most things. I detest liver and any offal.

Tell me an interesting fact about yourself 

For my birthday, my best friend bought me an experience gift to go to Liverpool Airport and fly a plane! What an experience.

What did you want to do when you were growing up? 

Believe it or not, I didn’t always want to be an accountant! Growing up I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be. Of course, I wanted to be a Fireman or a Policeman from a young age, but when I did my degree that changed everything.  I love being an accountant as it’s a reputable and strong career.

Tell us about your role 

My role as Senior Accountant includes preparing accounts, reviewing accounts, VAT Returns and Self-Assessment Tax Returns. I’m looking forward to helping the business grow and I’m excited to take on any further responsibilities as the business expands.

What do you like about working at JDA?

Although I’ve only been here a short time, Jon is very professional and that carries through to the business. The brand looks great too! The people are welcoming, easy-going and normal (so far!).  There is great technology and software. The free parking is a bonus!

Welcome to the team, Wayne. We’re sure you’ll be a great success!
