We are absolutely delighted to announce that Selen Mertdjan has qualified as an ACCA Accountant.
January marks the start of an incredible year for our award-winning superstar as she has waltzed through her final accountancy exam, racking up an impressive eight exams in less than two years – and all passed first time!
Selen joined the team as a junior accountant with a first-class honours degree in Accounting & Business Management from the University of Westminster. She has a strong record of managing her portfolio of clients superbly, providing the highest quality of accounting and tax advice, as well as creating solutions for helping them to run their businesses with ease. She has a solid understanding of the unique challenges each business faces and is passionate about helping those clients to achieve their potential.
Selen’s outstanding skills have already led to success – she’s been named as a Winner in the Accountancy Practice Excellence Awards and a Top Ten Rising Star in the British Accountancy Awards.
Selen is as proud to be part of our team as we are to have her! “Staff feel empowered and clients are put at the heart of everything we do here!” In terms of her success, she smiles as she says, “It’s been a long journey with ups and downs, and I’m relieved and ecstatic to reach the end. I’m very thankful for everyone putting up with my strops, exam tears and tantrums! For those who are still studying… keep it up and don’t ever doubt your abilities. There is light at the end of the tunnel!”
Joe Sword, one of Nordens’ partners, says, “Selen has done amazingly well with her exams since joining. The thing that has been really apparent is her focus and commitment to passing; she has stuck at it throughout, at times dealing with a lot of distractions. I know her attitude will be inspirational to the people around her, including her clients and fellow team members. Given her prior background in banking, and her personality in general, she has a very good ability to think with an open mind and add commerciality into her work with clients. Now that she has qualified I am really looking forward to her expanding on this to continue to add value across not only her client base, but to the firm too. Her future is unlimited!”
Partner Panayiota Viglas adds, “Now it’s time for Selen to get back on track with planning her wedding in May! And with her excellent organisational skills and attention to detail, we know it’ll be a party to remember!”

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!
In celebration of our 18th birthday, we’ve launched our Refer-a-Friend scheme, allowing you to receive a thank you gift from us of up to £1,000 for successfully introducing a new client.
