About Karen

Karen has worked in the HR, finance, pensions and payroll industry for most of her career, focussing on the payroll and pensions industry for the last 20 years.  She sits on a number of government consultation forums representing employer and client views.

She is qualified to Masters level and lectures for the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) in partnership with Derby University for the Masters programme and is one of only 10 people to be appointed as a Chartered Member of the CIPP.  In addition she is also a qualified tutor for the CIPP teaching their Foundation Degree in Payroll Management.

Whether a business is a customer now or not, she values them.  Karen insists that no-one is treated as a number, only as a person.  Customer service is at the forefront of everything she does. She uses the knowledge she has to help employers keep their employees happy, by providing an excellent payroll service. 

Karen became only the second known Payroll Partner of a UK accountancy firm in April 2019.
