Two years ago we welcomed Chartered Certified Accountant Carol Beesley to the Wild & Co team and she has made a hugely positive impact on our business since joining us from North Yorkshire County Council.
Every member of the Wild & Co team spends a lot of their time out of the office with clients and networking with other Yorkshire businesses so having a friendly personality and plenty of energy is just as important as being good with finances.
For Carol, it was a big shift from an admin heavy role in local government to a highly digitalised office where flexible working is taken for granted and paperwork is pretty much a thing of the past.
Liz Wild, who founded Wild & Co almost a decade ago, said: “Carol has been just the right person to help us take our business to the next level and we are now in a position to expand even further thanks to the expertise, passion – and extra pair of hands – she has brought.”
Carol said: “One of the biggest changes between my old job and this one was the level of automation. Using digital systems and processes to automate tasks that I had been used to carrying out manually freed up so much time to spend sitting down with clients and talking to them about their business.
“The result is that I am in a role that is hugely rewarding and gives me the flexibility I need to achieve a really good balance between work and home life.”
