Sara Jones has recently joined our team of Liverpool accountants on a 5-week placement with us at Jon Davies Accountants. She is in her second year of Business with Finance at Liverpool John Moores University and is off to Oslo next semester to study.

We caught up with Sara to find out more about her.

What do you like to do outside work?

In my free time I enjoy doing regular physical activity either in the form of going to the gym, going on hikes around the Welsh countryside or doing indoor rock climbing.  I also enjoy attending music concerts and festivals and spending time with family and friends.

Where is your favourite place?

From a young age I went to New Quay in wales for caravan holidays. These are my fondest childhood memories. I have always dreamed of owning my own caravan down there for nice weekend escapes.

What is your favourite food and least favourite food?

My favourite food is anything with chickpeas in, from falafels to hummus anything with it in is delicious. My least favourite food is raisins.

Tell me an interesting fact about yourself?

I used to compete nationally in javelin and came 4th in wales for it. I am off to study and stay in Oslo for 6 months at the start of next year, which I’m super excited about.

What did you want to do when you were little?

When I was younger, I wanted to be an actress, but who didn’t? It then went into a physiotherapist, a p.e teacher, a personal trainer, a lawyer, a stockbroker and more recently an accountant. Basically, if you can think of a job I probably wanted to do it at some point in my life.

Tell us about your role?

I am the newest employee, I am working for 5 weeks where Jon is allowing me to do an array of jobs, from helping with admin to helping with accounts.

What do you like about working at JDA?

The whole team are so welcoming, helpful and friendly it made my time settling in so much easier and enjoyable. My work has allowed me to observe all the different aspects of the business, allowing me to have a more interesting and varied day.

We’re really pleased to have Sara as part of our team of Liverpool accountants – we’ll try to prove that accountancy is not boring. Welcome to JDA!
