“NOT STOPPING UNTIL THE JOB IS DONE.”

Amelia Hicks is a [job title here] in AAB’s VAT & Duty team, working with clients across a number of sectors to analyse and organise data, liaise with HMRC and create monthly audit reports.  

PROVIDING CONSISTENT SUPPORT

“My priority when working with clients is to provide them with consistent support and bring solutions to them in a timely manner. We’re helping them with complex issues, so it is vital I spend time getting a solid understanding of their business operations and the needs that we can meet.  

Quite rightly, my clients expect quality work, respectful communications, accurate details and a relationship that means they can contact me and know their request will be in safe hands.”  

STAYING MOTIVATED

“In every aspect of my job I don’t stop until I get the job done. In my head the request instantly becomes a goal that I have to reach. This is one of my greatest strengths, I’m passionate about what I do, care about my clients and want to always provide them with the best service.  

In our industry there are continuous tight deadlines, so this motivation really helps with that. It is also a huge help to be working in such a supportive and motivated team, and we all rally together to make sure work is completed in time.” 

A SATISFYING ROLE

“It is really satisfying when the hard work pays off and we are lucky to work with fantastic clients that recognise our hard work. It is rewarding knowing that you have helped hard working businesses with complex issues, and seeing the relationship grow to becoming a trusted advisor is something we all strive for. 

I’m also extremely fortunate to work in such a supportive team, surrounded by hard-working people who look out for one another, offer continuous support and guidance and create a friendly environment to work in every day.” 

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

“I think I am most excited to see how technology continues to impact our profession. Innovation has created so many solutions for us: time saving, data access, communication; you can’t deny the benefits. However, it is all about balance, and I think you still need that human connection to create the meaningful relationship that I strive for with my clients. 

As well as building on client relationships I’m looking forward to my development within the team, becoming an increasingly valuable asset as the team grows. I’m always willing to learn, and know there is so much out there for me to gain a stronger understanding of, so I am very much looking forward to the endless opportunities.”
