PKF Francis Clark

Corrina Assistant


“There is a real team spirit in the office and a collaborative environment.”

  • What attracted you to PKF Francis Clark?

    I had recently moved to the South West and when I was looking around at potential employers it stood out as not just the largest but the most dynamic and forward thinking firm in the region. I liked the fact that PKF Francis Clark was part of a national network but also retained the feel of a regional firm.

  • Tell us about your role and what you get involved in

    I work in Audit and Accounts across a range of sectors but with a big focus on charities and academy schools. Having previously worked as a teacher I am really passionate about education and I have been able to use that in my role here and really play to my strengths and interests.

  • What do you like most about working here?

    There is a real team spirit in the office and a collaborative environment. Lots of events mean you get to know people all around the office and there is always someone you can look to for advice when you need it. There is also quite a lot of cake!

  • Tell us about the culture

    I felt very at home and welcome here from day one. The culture is very inclusive and there is a real focus on wellbeing. People are motivated to work hard and to achieve their best but there is also an emphasis on achieving the right work/life balance for you.

  • What’s been your biggest achievement?

    I am currently in the last few months of my ACA qualification and I actually won the Railton prize for the highest mark internationally in the Business Strategy and Technology exam which I sat last year. I attended the prize giving ceremony in London where the president of the ICAEW awarded me the prize. That was a very proud moment.

  • How are you supported in your role?

    There is a very supportive environment in the office and I am comfortable asking any of my colleagues for help when I feel I can’t solve a problem alone. My line manager catches up with us all on a regular basis and offers help and support where it is needed.

  • What’s your favourite album and why?

    Florence + the Machine – Ceremonials.

    It’s a great album and really up-lifting. Putting it on always makes me smile and reminds me of a really fun time in my life.

  • How do you spend your free time?

    Walking the beautiful beaches and coastlines of Cornwall, paddleboarding, practicing yoga, reading, cooking and playing with my cats!
