I am Shakira Parker, a Quality Manager. I joined Finerva in 2022.
I work closely with Seema in assessing the quality of work that we provide to all our clients. I also oversee the compliance requirements for our clients.
I am ACCA qualified since 2013. My previous roles have mainly been in practice – including preparation of statutory accounts, tax returns, management accounts and personal tax. I was also a keen auditor in what seems like a lifetime ago!
What I really enjoy about my role is the variety of clients I work with. Every business is unique and requires a different approach.
I especially enjoy the monthly quality reviews and trying to improve processes in order to help our bookkeepers work more efficiently, and in turn improve the quality of the closing of the year end accounts.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my young family. I am (almost) always thinking about new DIY projects at home. Along with my sister who is a keen baker, I have recently started making character cakes for my son’s birthdays, including Marvel and Lego (sorry not taking any orders!). I am also a self-proclaimed chocoholic.
