Six new members of staff have joined the RNS team recently.

Trainee accountant Ellie Osborne is based in Brigg.

She attended Tollbar Academy and Franklin College in Grimsby, where she lives, and Hull University, graduating in 2016 with an English degree.

Ellie worked in payroll for two-and-a-half years before joining RNS.

She has started her ACA qualification and works with Sharon Clarke and Chris Driver.

“I'm enjoying working in a friendly team and getting involved straight away,” Ellie said.

Outside of work, she likes to travel, sew and visit museums.

Joining Ellie as a trainee accountant is Jasmin Sunar but she is based at the Scunthorpe office.

A former pupil at Sir John Nelthorpe School in Brigg, she went to John Leggott College and Nottingham Trent University.

Jasmin, who lives in Scotter, graduated with a 2:1 in accounting and finance and will also work towards an ACA qualification.

She enjoys working with a friendly group of people and, out of work, she likes to travel and spend time with family and friends.

A new bookkeeper at Brigg, Georgi Hayward has 10 years' experience in industry in a similar role.

She works with Amy Kirkham and enjoys the challenges presented by each individual client and how no day is quite the same.

A former pupil at Huntcliff Secondary School, she lives in Brigg and loves to spend all her time outside of work with her daughter, husband and the rest of her family.

Fellow bookkeeper Alice Sharp has an unusual passion – performing stand-up comedy.

She lives in Brigg and her interests also include being a member of an astronomy society, gardening, festivals and crafting.

She is studying her AAT Level 2 in Accountancy, with a final exam to complete.

This is the first job she's wanted, applied for and studied in. Others, from dental nursing to pub management, have been by accident.

She loves organising, problem solving and, possibly most of all, stationary. Joking aside, she says RNS is an amazing firm to work for, so supportive and she's learning so much.

Former student at The St Lawrence Academy in Scunthorpe, trainee accountant Declan Hodges is working towards his Level 3 AAT.

He went to sixth form at Gordonstoun in Scotland where he achieved A-levels in maths, further maths and physics.

He works with Danica and enjoys working alongside a supportive team and the challenges the work brings.

He lives in Scunthorpe and his main interest outside of work is football.

Finally, Karen Graves has joined RNS Independent Financial Advisors' team as an administrator.

She has worked in financial services for more than 20 years, working at Britannia Building Society and the Cooperative Bank.

Karen attended Branston School and Community College in Lincoln and now lives in Bottesford.

She enjoys working with a great team of people and building her knowledge on pension and investment products and processes.

Outside of work, her two children keep her busy and she enjoys watching her son play football. She also likes to walk and has started jogging, taking part in the odd park run.
