Simon Rickard

Accounts Senior

I started working in my local town of Northwich after completing a degree in Accounting from the University of Hull in 2005. It was here that I learnt my trade but within three years I moved south and began working with a small firm in Alton, Hampshire. During this time, the company expanded which allowed my skills and knowledge to really develop and I finally qualified as a chartered certified accountant in 2013. In August 2014, I relocated again to live in Bournemouth and began working with Ward Goodman as an Accounts Senior.

I am a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant with almost ten years of experience in general practice, with a wide exposure to small and medium sized businesses. I pride myself on working closely with clients to offer a unique support that is timely, informative and will divulge the real advantages available through your business. If you have recently started up in business then I can be on hand to assist through all the uncertainties of being self employed or working under a limited company umbrella. I also offer a platform to keep your business records in the best condition possible, enabling the financial communication to be optimised so you can be provided with the advice when and where you need it.

Likes outside of work: After recently joining a health club, I’d like to say my fitness is now a personal priority. That aside, I have always taken interest in financial investments and believe this to be my reason as to why I am keen to maximise client wealth at every opportunity.

Qualifications: ACCA, BSc (Accounting)
