Iain Jennions BA(Hons) FFA FIPA FFTA
Iain trained with Grant Thornton prior to taking a break to study International Business and Spanish at Liverpool John Moores University including a year spent studying at the University of Salamanca, Spain. Following his degree he returned to his accountancy career, becoming a national award winning client manager prior to joining a local firm where he ran the largest portfolio of clients since 2002. The next step, naturally, was to start up his own practice.
As someone who is fastidiously organised and (almost) obsessively neat it means that clients’ needs will be priority and their affairs dealt with efficiently and on time.
Outside of work Iain is also a director and board member of the Insight Film Festival and takes a keen interest in helping develop the festival, as well as keeping an eye on the finance (naturally!).
Kirsty Hale ACIPP
Kirsty has worked in an accounts and administration role for the past 12 years since leaving Carmel College. During that time she has developed a wide understanding of Xero, Sage and IRIS and will be dealing with practice growth together with in-house accounts, credit control and administration.
She is currently working towards her AAT Qualification and is now an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals.
Kirsty is responsible for overseeing all payroll services and VAT. Kirsty is reassuringly attentive and always keen to give good service so rest assured the quality of service provided by Jennions Macken will continue to be a priority of the practice.
Carol Macken PGDip, FRSPH
Carol hails from a family of Chartered Accountants and gained valuable experience at Sheil Kinnear & Co in Ireland prior to moving over to the UK. As company secretary she is responsible for working alongside Kirsty to develop practice growth and keeping her keen eye on all things administrative.
Since her accountancy career she has graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a Post Graduate Diploma in Health Promotion, Policy and Research and is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Public Health. She has worked in private, public and voluntary sectors and is experienced in all organisational administration and governance.
Ken comes from a strong accounting background having worked in various roles predominantly in industry since his introduction to the workplace at 16. He has been a lead accountant and manager for more years than he probably cares to remember and just when he thought his retirement was nearing has found himself in a new part time role (it ‘saves him from the DIY’ so he says).
Ken also works voluntarily looking after the accounts and administration for the Cheshire Asbestos Victims Support Group (CAVSG) based in Runcorn.
