Nicola Lewis

Assistant Manager

As Assistant Manager, I am responsible for managing my own portfolio of clients. This includes mainly limited company accounts, but also involves some sole traders, partnerships, and audits. This involves overseeing audits and accounts for clients, from planning to completion stage, working alongside the general accountancy team and corporate tax arm of the firm and monitoring client deadlines to ensure that these are met. I pride myself in always being available to assist my clients with any problems or queries as and when they arise, and I particularly enjoy training junior members of staff.

Having started my career as a recruiter for a small independent consultancy, I first developed an interest in the world of accountancy following the financial crash in 2008. I started as a junior at a small practice in Crosby and completed my AAT levels 3 & 4, before commencing my ACA qualification. After a few challenges, I completed my ACA and qualified in 2021.

What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done? 
Professional by day, aspiring artist by night!  The boldest step I’ve ever taken was auditioning for the X-Factor. Currently, I am getting my kicks doing karaoke at my local pub at the weekend - much to the dismay of my friends and family!

What is the most exciting thing on your bucket list? 
My ultimate dream: conquering the world’s longest abseil, the mighty Maletsunyane Falls in Lesotho, one of the highest single dropping waterfalls in Africa. A thrilling adventure I can’t wait to cross off my bucket list!

What one piece of advice would you give your 10-year-old self?
Dear 10-year-old me, life may have its challenges, but with determination and perseverance you will overcome any obstacles and find success on your journey.

Who inspires you? 
The late Queen Elizabeth II, was an inspiration for me throughout her long reign. Her dedication, resilience, and commitment to her role as the monarch of the United Kingdom earned her admiration not only from myself, but from people from all over the world.
