Learn more about Kieran Allen, and a typical day for him as a Bookkeeper here at The Accountancy Partnership

Give an overview of the duties, functions, and responsibilities of your job:

My duties involve uploading clients’ bank statements, receipts, and invoices, and completing the bookkeeping. Once that’s done, I double-check my work against the checklist to ensure everything has been allocated correctly. I also working through the bookkeeping inbox emails, as well as working on the Pandle support live chat.

What is a typical working day like for you?

My first job in when I arrive in the morning is to clear down any emails received overnight. After this I’ll check what activities have been allocated to me, and work on what deadlines we may have to ensure the work is completed on time. The bookkeeping team also have a live chat shift on Pandle, our bookkeeping software, answering questions for users.

What is your favourite part of the job?

When I have a difficult bookkeeping job, I find it really satisfying to complete it with everything reconciled.

What do you like most about working for The Accountancy Partnership?

The employee benefits, such as the twice-a-week caterers and smoothie days, and the friendly nature of working in the office.

What skills do you find most useful to do your job?

Being able to multi-task and manage a high workload during busy periods of the year. Being able to work on multiple activities at once is very useful to my job.

Where’s your favourite place to visit on days off?

Travelling down to see my family and spending time with my dog in Ellesmere Port.

Tell us about your proudest achievement.

My proudest achievement is probably my qualifications, I’ve finished my AAT Level 4 and I’m now working towards finishing off my ACCA exams.

How would your colleagues describe you?

Helpful – I like seeing the people around me progress so I tend to offer my help to those who need it. I also provide interesting perspectives on topics of discussion.

What are you reading/binge watching at the moment?

I’m currently re-watching Breaking Bad and about to watch season 4 of Ozark.

Who do you admire, and why?

Tommy Shelby from the show Peaky Blinders. I’ve always found it great how he comes up with solutions to problems when everything is falling apart.

What question would you really like to answer, and what’s the answer?!

Q. In total how much time have I spend playing video games over my life?

A. I would say the answer to this is close to about 50,000 hours / 2,080 days. I have about 22,000 hours on one single game.
