PKF Francis Clark

Emily Assistant Manager


“Our department is very lucky to have a great support structure from both the managers and the partners.”

  • What attracted you to PKF Francis Clark?

    I had heard of PKF Francis Clark as one of the larger firms in the local area. Their reputation was very positive when I spoke to friends and family about my interest in the firm.

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

    I am an Assistant Manager in the Corporate department of the Torquay office. My day-to-day role involves travelling to clients (both locally and further afield) and spending a week working out of their offices whilst the audit work is being done. I am also on the Social Committee in the Torquay office, which is a voluntary position that I have just begun.

  • What do you like most about working here?

    The people. I think in the Corporate department it is very important that you get along with your colleagues, particularly as we often work in small teams out on-site.

  • Tell us about the culture

    Undoubtedly there is an expectation to get the job done. However, it is clear that everyone here appreciates the value of a work/life balance.

  • Tell us about your career path since joining the firm and your ambitions for the future

    I graduated from Edinburgh University in 2013 with a degree in Geology and Physical Geography and was enrolled on the PKF Francis Clark graduate scheme from September 2013. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in August 2016. Since then I have continued to gain audit experience across many sectors (charities, academies, listed companies, family businesses and solicitors). I’ve hosted some of the training courses for recent graduates and am an office champion for some of the software we use.

  • How do you spend your free time?

    I love cooking, baking, making jam, pickling veg, trying out new ingredients – anything in the kitchen really! I love hosting dinner parties and BBQs too.
