“GETTING TO KNOW CLIENTS IS KEY.”
Taslima Haque is an assistant manager in our audit team, based in our Edinburgh office. She supports her clients through the audit process, ensuring they meet their compliance and regulatory obligations. Whilst Taslima works with clients across a range of sectors, she has significant experience working with charities and housing associations.
Taslima says that ideal client relationships involve trust and mutual respect with a natural rapport. It’s great to get to know clients beyond just a professional means and get to know them as a person rather than just as a client.
UNDERSTANDING THEIR BUSINESS
“Working with varied clients is great because you get to meet lots of people and see the different approaches they have to their business. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know our clients and gaining an understanding of their business as it better enables us to provide the awesome service clients expect, and deserve from us.
It’s all about working together and communicating regularly with clients, not only so that they know how their audit is progressing and so that we can deal with any challenges, but to ensure that we can build a great relationship from the start.”
HYBRID BENEFITS US ALL
“We pride ourselves on being adaptable at AAB and I think the move to taking a hybrid approach to working and delivering client work shows this. A few years ago I don’t think anyone could have really imagined completing audits completely remotely, but it proved to be more effective than I think anyone could have imagined. Clients often tell us that they appreciate the flexibility of having our team in their offices, and working remotely as it helps them manage their own workloads. We are here to make their lives easier after all, so it’s great that we can continue to adapt and support clients in this way.”
HELPFUL & APPROACHABLE
“There are so many things I enjoy about working at AAB. The clients are very varied which makes it all the more interesting and I get to learn about their businesses which I may not have otherwise had the opportunity to do elsewhere. The business is constantly growing too which means we are growing our audit team. In my first year at AAB our audit team based in the Edinburgh office alone doubled in size which was incredible!
I have great support from my colleagues, whether that’s day-to-day support from the wider team or a partner. Everyone is very helpful and approachable. This is the approach I take to client work too, and clients often tell me that I am very helpful and not only approachable but accessible. I think this is so important and we always want our clients to feel valued and appreciated.”
