Having just completed her AAT Level 4, Vicki helps Andrea with the payroll and helps the team completing VAT returns and prepping accounts. Vicki has just bought her first home, so is knee deep in DIY, however she regularly hits the netball court to let off some steam.

Zoe always knew she wanted to get out there and work in practice allowing her to study and gain valuable hands-on experience at the same time. Out of work, Zoe is another avid baker – meaning she was always destined to join the Turas team!
