Sinéad’s new role

Scunthorpe-born Sinéad Catchpole, who joined RNS from sixth form, has been appointed associate partner.


New associate partner Sinéad Catchpole with senior partner John Heeney.

She will inherit some clients from Jenny Camm, who is stepping down as a partner to become a priest but will remain as a consultant until next summer.

Sinéad (née Hill) is looking forward to the challenge.

“I've worked alongside Jenny since I started and will have done accounts preparation for some of these clients as a junior,” she said.

“We will be working together to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.

“I'm looking forward to establishing my own portfolio of clients and helping businesses improve.

“I've always enjoyed seeing how different-sized businesses operate and how they grow each year.

“We act for such a variety of clients so I get an insight in different sectors which I find interesting.

“I'm stepping into my role during a time of great uncertainty for many businesses due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The RNS team continues to provide the same high level of service clients expect and help people get through the other side of this.”

The former student at John Leggott Sixth Form College qualified as a chartered accountant five years ago having been supported through training by the firm.

“I've always been given a lot of encouragement to develop and try new things both from the partners and my colleagues.

“I'm very grateful to the partners at RNS for the opportunities they've given me.

“I worked my way through the RNS training pathway and now like to help my colleagues' progress through their studies and their work.

“It's nice to see them grow in confidence and ability,” Sinéad said.

Outside of work, the former Queen Elizabeth's High School in Gainsborough pupil enjoys travelling with husband Craig and spending time with friends and family.

“I also try to do a bit of running. This usually consists of me booking a race and six weeks beforehand panic training for it!”

She was congratulated on her new role by senior partner John Heeney.

“Sinéad is a great example of our successful approach to training,” he said.

“It's rewarding for partners to see investment in talent paying off. Sinéad's worked hard and is a great asset to the firm as we move forward.

“I wish her all the best in her new role.

“I'd also like to thank Jenny for her considerable effort and input as a partner. I'm pleased she is staying on as a consultant to help the transition to Sinéad and wish her well for the future.”
