Gareth joined Smailes Goldie Group in the summer of 2015 as an Accounts and Audit Trainee.
He balanced this role alongside his studies, becoming ACA qualified in November 2018. Now as an Audit Senior, Gareth’s role includes being the senior lead on audits of clients in a variety of different industries sectors, from Oil Processing to Manufacturing, from SMEs to not-for-profit organisations and is also a senior within the Academies Team. Away from audit, Gareth enjoys delivering presentations to a wide variety of audiences, and has been involved in the delivery of our recruitment evenings for the past few years. Recent presentations have been delivered to students at the University of Hull on behalf of the ICAEW, and as part of the FEO (For Entrepreneurs Only) 360 programme to local entrepreneurs.
Outside of work Gareth’s main passion is sport, in particular hockey. He is the Ladies Head Coach at Doncaster Hockey Club, who play in England’s National League Conference North, and also the Head Coach of the England Ladies Over 35s, with whom he has achieved success by winning both the Masters World Cup in 2018 and the Masters European Championships in 2019. Aside from hockey, Gareth plays cricket for the Smailes Goldie Cricket Team and regularly competes for Smailes Goldie in the annual Hull Corporate Badminton Cup.
