We help everyone we work with identify and achieve their goals through collaboration and understanding their motivations to convert these into a strategy that builds a solid platform for long-term growth and development. We listen, we talk, we collaborate, we think, we plan, we succeed; for our clients, our team and our suppliers. We give everyone we work with the tools to achieve their goals.
We’re a fast-growing practice, so, if you don’t see a job advertised that suits you, send us your CV anyway. If you’re talented, enthusiastic, and keen to join a firm that values its team and offers fantastic training opportunities, we want to hear from you.
My main area of interest is business strategy, both for driving Nordens’ continual development and for contributing to our clients’ business growth and success.
Having established Nordens in 2002 from my spare bedroom, I’m proud that it has grown into a firm that is now recognised as one of London’s leading accountancy practices. We’ve won a number of industry awards for accounting, staff development and service excellence; these are testament to the exceptional, talented team that makes Nordens such an outstanding practice.
I have an unquenchable passion for driving successful business growth.

I now work strategically with a number of business owners to help them achieve their goals.
Outside of work I play golf and tennis fairly poorly, and love arty things.

Assisting them with achieving their financial objectives is a service that we’re extremely proud of here at Nordens.

Expertise: Account reconciliation | Xero | Receipt Bank
I manage Nordens’ bespoke bookkeeping arm, Accounting2You (A2Y), ensuring that the team has the correct knowledge to support clients and complete work in the most efficient manner. My role includes managing the A2Y team’s work flow to make sure we meet all relevant deadlines, reviewing the work completed and training the team on an ongoing basis. I love keeping my colleagues motivated and feeling well supported.
A2Y is a unique service, as each client receives a service tailored to their business needs, so the end product of our work is always specific and relevant to that particular client. We take over the admin and bookkeeping functions so that they can spend their time focusing on the profitable areas of their own business.
And by providing clients with an up to date view of what’s going on, they can see at any given moment exactly how their business is performing. It also allows them to have more accurate tax and vat figures, as there is less risk of them missing, forgetting or losing items at the end of the tax year.
I love being totally involved with our clients as this allows for a better understanding of their businesses. In fact, every member of our friendly and supporting team is trained to assist with queries, so there is always someone available to help businesses grow. We’re here to do more than just standard accounts and tax preparation.
I’m proud that I achieved my ACCA qualification at just 21 years old. Having entered accountancy aged 17, I strive to have the most motivated, engaged and efficient team, and help to build our client base. On a personal level, I enjoy – and intend – to keep climbing my way up the Nordens’ career ladder. When I’m not heading up the A2Y team, you might find me on holiday or visiting family in Newcastle. Although I’ve only recently relocated to London so, being new to the area, I’ve still got lots to see and do!

With responsibility for the administration and clients’ bookkeeping within our Accounting2You division, my role focuses specifically on bank reconciliation.

Expertise: Accounts and tax return preparation | Workflow management | Production system implementation
My job is to ensure that all paperwork flows smoothly to allow the accounts team to work seamlessly with clients. Our bespoke service includes contacting each client on a personal level, as opposed to a generic system. I’m aware of any situations that they may be facing, whether good or bad, and can walk them through the steps and processes we take to ensure a first-class experience. I always try to be a step ahead, making sure I know the answers to any potential questions, and that there is always a plan of action in place.
I am proud to be part of a business and brand that cares so much about its clients and their specific needs, and I’m passionate about building on new and existing client relationships to keep them delighted with the service we provide.

Outside of work I enjoy playing and watching football. I visit the gym regularly and have a strong passion for the music and film industry.
Expertise: Workflow management | Data translation
My role mainly involves liaising with clients to make sure they know exactly what paperwork we need to complete and file their accounts, and ensuring they send it to us on time. It’s important that our clients feel supported at this stage of their accounting, so I’m on hand to provide advice and share knowledge ahead of the required timeframes. By giving clients this extra support, I’m instrumental in helping to process their businesses accounts smoothly and efficiently. HMRC issues fines for late submissions; we ensure our clients avoid this by giving them plenty of notice to send in their paperwork, and I provide gentle reminders and checklists where necessary.
I am passionate about helping our clients to succeed. I’m also focussed on increasing my training within Nordens to ensure I can provide support across all departments whenever needed.
Outside of work I enjoy playing hockey and spending quality time with my family, making memories with them all, especially my son. I’m proud of working to further my career while teaching him valuable life skills.

Expertise: Client business growth | Accounts preparation | tax advice | Audit
In my role as an accountant at Nordens, I spend much of my time preparing statutory accounts, keeping clients informed about what’s going on and liaising with HMRC on their behalf. My previous experience working in a bank equipped me well for dealing with additional queries, such as those related to mortgages and issues regarding accounts letters.
I’m happy when my clients are happy. I’m proud to hold a Best Customer Experience Officer award, and continue to ensure my clients experience first-class service here at Nordens. Since joining the team in early 2017, I’ve been most impressed that my colleagues make the practice stand out from other accountancy firms; exceptional team work and an enjoyable atmosphere mean that my working day whizzes by.

Expertise: Client business growth | Accounts preparation | tax advice | Audit
Two of the things I love about working within Nordens’ bookkeeping and credit control team are our unique responsive approach and the way in which we communicate with clients.
My role is varied and challenging, full of aspects I enjoy immensely. Whether I’m working out a payment plan, raising VAT invoices or chasing outstanding payments, I always aim to make the process easier for the client by talking to them rather than emailing. This provides instant clarity to any queries they may have and ensures they feel comfortable with the whole Nordens family and not just the team handling their accounts.
When I’m not in the office handling credit control matters, you’ll usually find me spending time with my family at home.
Expertise: Bookkeeping | Credit Control
My responsibility for running over 100 payrolls and more than 30 pension payments means that it’s a constantly dynamic environment. Yet I’ll always find time to help clients with HMRC queries and those who need additional support with their payroll, automatic enrolment or pensions.
No one likes waiting for answers, particularly when their queries refer to financial matters. So, my priority is to make sure our clients receive a first-class service with the full support they require and deserve, with a fast turnaround that puts their minds at ease quickly.
I’m privileged to work within a team of dedicated, approachable payroll professionals and, together, we’re proud of the high level of client satisfaction we achieve.
Outside of work you’ll find me at the gym with my husband, shopping with my daughter or enjoying a meal out.
Expertise: Payroll | Pensions | Automatic enrolment
At Nordens, we offer a truly personal approach with our clients. We take the time to really listen to what they need and support them wholeheartedly rather than simply providing a service. I particularly ensure this is the case for all aspects of running the monthly payroll and CIS systems, and when I’m responding to clients’ queries or setting up pension schemes.
I understand that dealing with HMRC can be stressful for businesses, so I aim to make their lives easier by handling everything on their behalf, including appealing penalties!
I’m delighted to be part of a fantastic team. Together, we’re determined to always provide the absolute best service for our clients, ensuring they receive accurate information and advice, and making sure they are satisfied.
Aside from payroll, I enjoy weekend breaks away, spending time with my friends, family and two gorgeous German Shepherds!
Expertise: Payroll | Construction Industry Scheme Systems
Our payroll department is unique in that we are each assigned our own clients, supporting them from start to finish and building a helpful, friendly working relationship with them. Most of all, we provide a can-do attitude, where we are happy to deal with all the HMRC queries, payroll, pensions, CIS and automatic enrolment on their behalf – as well as offering advice on all facets of payroll.
I love how busy it always is, and that we are able to stay up-to-date with the constantly changing legislation. I also love how we work as a team to ensure all work is completed efficiently every month, to the highest standard and with a friendly attitude.
I am proud of my accounting experience, including my AAT studies, that give me the background knowledge to better serve our clients’ interests. And my investigative skills come in handy when it comes to an accounting issue – I am always determined to find the cause and a speedy solution!
In my spare time I love reading sci-fi and fantasy novels, playing video games, and travelling with my other (better) half.

Regardless of the strict deadlines we must meet, our clients genuinely come first and nothing is too much trouble.
I’m proud of the way in which the team has developed, and our knowledge of the intricacies of payroll means that clients receive the optimum service at all times. I’m almost as passionate about providing an efficient payroll service as I am to be working as part of such a dependable, loyal and supportive team.
When I’m not at work making sure clients are paid on time, I love spending time with my family and friends, and eating chocolate!
Since joining Nordens in 2011, my role has focused on providing a first-class service to our VAT registered clients.

I’m passionate about finding solutions to queries and issues, and keeping my clients happy – I love it when a satisfied client sends me a really nice email; what a lovely way to brighten up the day!
The VAT desk is hectic and high energy, run by a team of professional and dedicated people; I like to present a calming influence amidst all the buzz.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching tv and cooking – especially cheesecake and brownies!

We aim to be friendly and supportive at all times to ensure our clients feel comfortable and can view us as an integral part of their business. I like to make their lives easier by breaking down their VAT returns and explaining in clear, jargon-free language how we worked out their figures, and responding quickly to any queries that arise.

My current role at Nordens involves preparing VAT Returns for clients. It’s a dedicated department in that the exceptional team works as a whole; we provide a friendly and supportive service with each team member offering their individual clients a bespoke service that works for them.
I aim to make my clients lives easier by supporting them throughout the VAT process and offering guidance wherever needed. This can be through calling or emailing. It’s about providing the personal touch for each client so they feel that were working with them rather than simply for them.
I am proud to be working with this extraordinary bunch of people in the VAT team who strive for the very best for themselves, the team, the firm and – importantly – our clients. This is reflected in everyone’s work. I am passionate about Nordens’ ever evolving capacity to strive forward to provide the best support, advice and services for clients.

Expertise: VAT | Payroll | HR
Being responsible for Credit Control at Nordens is a very busy role that I enjoy.
If you owe us money it will probably be me that you’ll be speaking to. Confidentiality is assured and I always aim to provide a friendly, professional service. I am sympathetic and fair to clients’ needs and can help with a payment plan if you are experiencing cash flow issues.
My day is filled with invoicing, sending statements and speaking with clients. I prefer to chat either on the phone or in person rather than email as I know most people prefer a personal touch. I enjoy being a part of this forward thinking company that still holds old fashioned values.
Outside of work I love to sing as part of a Rock Choir! We recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios recently and sing at local festivals. I also love to dance and enjoy raising money for charity by doing sponsored walks across London.
Expertise: Credit Control | Administration | Customer Care
It’s important that clients provide timely information to make sure their accounts can be completed within the required deadlines, and I am responsible for liaising with them to collate the information needed for this to happen.

With extensive knowledge of setting up Limited Companies and their related statutory requirements, I’m able to resolve clients’ queries very quickly.
Being admin-focused, I’m passionate about things being systemised and a stickler for attention to detail. I’ll always go above and beyond to help clients avoid HMRC penalties. Sometimes this involves nagging them – but in a friendly way, as I value the exceptional relationships I have built up with them over the years.

I’m passionate about getting things done. Nothing is too much trouble and I’m always happy to assist clients or colleagues to make their lives run smoothly.

I love to make others smile and I’m proud of the number of thank you emails I receive from clients – and colleagues.
My daily workload covers a multitude of tasks related to welcoming new clients to Nordens and ensuring their paperwork is completed seamlessly. Having such a varied role makes my job really enjoyable and I love every part of it – especially my role as Nordens Social Secretary!
When I’m not building relationships with clients, I like to spend time with my family and socialise with friends. I also enjoy cooking, eating out, walks in the forest, spending time in the garden and, of course, holidays.
Expertise: Professional administration | Company Secretarial | Company Incorporation | Client Engagement | Anti-money Laundering Checks
I feel privileged to work with such an exceptional team. Together, we deliver a quick and professional service, supporting the accountants and looking after the company administrative side of our clients’ businesses. I love taking on new responsibilities, and my current ones include amending and submitting any changes in company structure to Companies House and HMRC, opening new limited companies, and handling all administration related to annual confirmation statements.
I’m on hand to greet clients when they come in to discuss their accounts, and I make sure they feel welcome. It’s really lovely to meet the people behind the businesses that we’re helping to support. I love that every day is different. My motto is ‘Never give up and enjoy every step of my life,’ – a philosophy I stick to!

It’s nice to be part of such a friendly team and a company that is professional and passionate about the services we provide.
Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends, eating out, gardening (summer only!!) and beach holidays abroad. I would love to travel to Australia to visit friends at some point.

I am passionate about learning new things and always working to the best of my abilities. I strive to do more, and things I love about working at Nordens include the opportunity to thrive and the constant new challenges that I can approach with increased confidence.

Expertise: Administration | Company Secretarial
As the manager of this busy, dynamic practice, my primary role is to ensure the smooth running of the office.

I constantly strive to create a happy working environment for everyone in the ‘Nordens family.’
My job involves monitoring that daily targets are achieved, which ensures clients receive a first-class service from start to finish. Our staff are the most talented people in their field and I’m proud to have been instrumental in setting up our internal training programme to help everyone achieve their professional goals.
I enjoy getting my teeth into the occasional challenge. So, being calm and (hopefully) approachable, I step in to assist in the few occasional situations where a client is not completely satisfied with our level of service.
When I clock off I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, walking my dog, reading and cooking.
Expertise: HR | Team Management | Client Care
Working alongside the tax manager, I handle clients’ personal tax returns as well as dealing with corporation tax.
It might seem strange to say that I’m passionate about tax – but I am! Tax is a dynamic field with constant changes, so I ensure that, here at Nordens, we’re kept up to date with current legislation in order to advise clients accordingly. This is particularly important when providing tax planning advice that impacts on our clients’ future wealth.
I love the challenges that working in the tax department brings. As every client’s needs are different, being able to advise them on the best tax strategies according to their needs is both enjoyable and fulfilling.
I’m currently working toward a Chartered Tax Advisor qualification to specialise in this field. And when I’m not working or studying you’ll usually find me spending time with family and friends - or keeping fit at the gym.

We've always got our ears to the ground when it comes to interesting, useful and topical information relating to business and accountancy.
We love making videos that break down convoluted accountancy jargon into plain-talking, actionable and accessible facts.
In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
Our limited company accountants have a range of qualifications from The Institute Of Chartered Accountants (ICAEW) to the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). We worry about the bye-laws, regulations and ethical guidelines of the ACCA so you don’t have to! That makes us an ACCA-accredited employer as well as a Professional Passport-accredited one!
At Nordens, we're committed to keeping our clients updated on all things business strategy and news. Each week we update our newsletter subscribers on what really matters in the big bad world of business. That way, you can stay one step ahead!
