Introducing the Who’s Who? corner of our monthly Newswire…
Each month we’ll interview one of the team here at KN to tell you a bit more about themselves and their role….after all, everyone loves a good nosey don’t they?!
Lucy Wilkinson – Accountant, Business Services
Lucy has been with KN for just over 4 years and works in our Business Services team. After leaving school she joined as part of our school leaver’s programme and completed her AAT qualification in 2017.
Tell us a bit about your role and how you got into Accounting
I actually wanted to be a paramedic for a couple of years towards the end of high school but eventually decided I wasn’t emotionally cut out for that. I then got the opportunity to spend a week at KN doing some work experience and realised that the office life wasn’t so bad, so here I am 4 years later, helping people out in a slightly(!) different way to a paramedic but still!
I work in the business services department providing assistance to clients mainly in bookkeeping/VAT returns, management accounts and year end accounts, and generally have a good balance of time spent working both in and out of the office, with some great clients and teammates!
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
Apart from bed? I’d have to choose two – I love Thailand for the culture, the food and the scenery, especially the islands which I am very excited to be revisiting next month. I also love Florida (specifically Disney World) as I have some great memories there and even after multiple visits, the magic never gets old!
What are you currently watching?
Peaky Blinders. I didn’t have it down as my sort of thing at first but soon got hooked and can’t wait for the next series later this year!
If you were an animal what would you be?
I’d definitely be a dog for the simple fact that I’d get my back tickled all day!
Tell us what’s on your bucket list
I’d like to scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef and see the Great Wall of China, and I’d LOVE to skydive over a beautiful beach one day. A few things I’ve already been able to tick off are meeting/feeding an elephant, seeing the Northern Lights and climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
