Helen’s role is varied, but includes marketing, recruitment and business development. One of her main roles includes meeting existing and potential clients, to find out more about what they really want from an accountant, and topics that are of interest to them. We regularly run business seminars so getting to know people really helps with deciding on the topics for these.

Throughout Helen’s career she has worked for a large blue-chip company in a variety of roles. Whilst this has given her a great foundation, she really enjoys the benefits of having a detailed understanding of the whole business and all its team, who are all passionate about Blackman Terrys success and the success of its clients.
