Steph Stevens - Director and Chartered Accountant

Steph Stevens

Director and Chartered Accountant

I have over 15 years accountancy experience and have worked with and advised businesses of all types – from charities, sole traders and SMEs to large multinationals.

I specialise in accountancy for charities and other not-for-profit groups, and I am really passionate about financial process improvements.

In my spare time I like to be outdoors, either running with friends or hiking up a hillside with my children!

Adele Pearson


I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2009 whilst working for a firm that specialised in auditing car dealerships which allowed me to travel all around the country.

Since then I have worked for two other accountancy firms where I worked with sole traders, partnerships, small and large limited companies. I have had quite a lot of experience specialising in Academy school audits and charity accounts.

My spare time is mainly taken up looking after my two young children.
