The Brightshire Team Welcomes Its Newest Member!

The team at Brightshire would like to introduce you to Amy Gallagher, who joined the practice recently as our newly qualified Accounting Technician.

We’re all really excited to be working with Amy and I’m sure you’ll extend an extremely warm welcome to her as she begins an exciting new chapter in her accountancy career.

Meet Amy

Amy is Suzanne’s niece and never thought twice about following her Aunty into the Accountancy profession. 

Before Amy joined a medium-sized practice – where she worked for 3 years – she completed 2 years at college, gaining A Levels in Maths, English and Law. Amy quickly decided that university wasn’t the right choice for her career and chose instead to follow the apprenticeship route. It suited her better and three years on, she has no regrets! She’s gained a vast amount of on the job knowledge whilst being able to achieve her AAT qualification.

Having completed her AAT qualifications, Amy is now continuing to study for her chartered accountancy exams.

Amy is well versed with Xero, Sage, Quickbooks and Farmplan and can help any business or client who uses packages.

Why Brightshire?

Apart from the obvious of coming to work in a family business, Amy decided she wanted to join the team at Brightshire Accountants because of the potential the business has for her own career. 

Amy is really looking forward to working with Suzanne and being able to benefit from her vast knowledge and experience in rural accounting, developing a strong working understanding of all aspects of the sector while she continues studying to obtain Chartered status. 

Amy can also see how refreshing the business is, seeing firsthand how much our client’s value what we have to offer. She said it’s great to see everyone working together as a team.  

What next for Amy?

Amy will assist Suzanne in preparing sets of accounts and liaising with clients to help in finalising everything for their year ends. This will also include personal, partnership tax returns, and corporation tax returns.

Suzanne will be introducing Amy further into the rural way of life, and she will get to know each of our clients, the challenges they face, and why they value the help of a dedicated rural accountancy practice like Brightshire.

Come and say hello to Amy, at our Christmas Open Office on the 12th December, starting at 12 Noon until 4 pm.  We would love you to join us for nibbles and refreshments.

I am Suzanne's niece and I never thought twice about following my Aunty into the Accountancy profession. ”
