Kilsby Williams expands its team with three new recruits

South Wales accountancy and tax experts Kilsby Williams have taken on three new recruits to strengthen its rapidly expanding team.

Sandy Gaywood joins the team as a tax senior, while Sarah-Jane Johnston and Jana Hepton join as payroll assistants.

Sandy has joined the Newport – based chartered accountants with over three years’ experience of working as a personal tax advisor. In her new role Sandy will look after a client portfolio primarily of individuals and partnerships.

Sandy said:

“The passion and enthusiasm of the partners at Kilsby Williams really appealed to me and made me realise that I would like to join a team dedicated to providing first class client service.  I hope to pass all my CTA exams and become a chartered tax advisor, bringing extra skills to the table.”

After working as an office manager and having payroll experience in two other businesses, Sarah-Jane decided to branch out and develop her skills further within a highly respected accountancy firm.  In her new role she will support the payroll department and process payrolls for Kilsby Williams’ clients.

Sarah-Jane said:

“This opportunity has come at the perfect time for me and I look forward to becoming an invaluable part of the payroll team.  Given Kilsby Williams’ professional reputation I hope to grow as an individual and become a full qualified chartered payroll professional.”

Jana joins as a payroll assistant and administrator.  The recent graduate was attracted to Kilsby Williams’ well-established reputation as a leading provider of accountancy services.  She decided to embark on an accountancy career after completing her BA (Hons) in Business Studies.

Mary McDonagh, Tax Partner at Kilsby Williams, said:

“We are always on the lookout for bright new talent and the opportunity to work with determined people hoping to expand their knowledge and experience of this industry. 

“With Sandy, Sarah-Jane and Jana I believe we have hired some highly ambitious and hard-working individuals who will be assets to the team as we continue to grow.”
