Clare Smith

Senior Accounts Assistant

I have been working for Richard Riley and Associates since September 2013. I was returning to work after taking time off to have my 2 children. Previously I worked in secondary schools as a Learning Support Assistant but knew I wanted to change career. I am now a level 2 qualified Accounting Technician and love my job and all it entails. Richard is a fabulous boss who told me in my interview that my family comes first and that has never changed. The office is somewhere I want to be in the morning as we all have a great working relationship and I feel I can truly say all the girls (and Richard) are not just my work colleagues but my friends.
