What do you do?

Hi, I’m Simon a Tax Partner here at Cooper Parry. And guess what? I love tax. I work in a team of tax geeks who give a damn. We’re a group of the brightest, award-winning tax brains. A team of technical experts, leaders and people who care.

Why do you do it?

I always knew I wanted to work in an office and was good with numbers!  Imagine working with awesome people, spending time solving complex issues or helping inspirational business owners build and protect their wealth. Well, I get to do that every day… and that’s why I love it.

What kind of projects have you been involved in?

Shaping the future of our business, bringing together and working alongside a hugely talented team of inspirational people

What’s on top of your bucket list?

I’m very fortunate in that I get to do almost everything that I want. Awesome job, great family, amazing holidays, the list goes on. There are some things that I’d still like to do including a family get together in a fairly isolated log cabin set in a forest with deep snow all around. The thought of being isolated, fire burning, whilst sharing special time with my family is incredible.
