Meet Simon, our new Client Payroll Specialist
It’s time for a little celebration as we welcome a new person to team Blu Sky! Simon has joined us as a Client Payroll Specialist.
We want you all to get to know him a bit better so we talked him into answering some quick questions about himself.
Welcome to the team, Simon!
What’s your full name?
Where do you live?
Newcastle Great Park
Where have you previously worked?
I have worked in various roles ranging from a Company Director for a property development company Signrate Ltd to EAGA PLC, Virgin Money and my latest role was at Sage as an Outsource Payroll Admin. I processed payroll for clients for 5 years ranging from director only payrolls to PLCs with thousands of staff and gained a great deal of experience.
What will you be doing in your new role?
I will be a Payroll Specialist. I will be processing payroll and looking after auto enrolment for many Blu Sky clients. Basically I make sure clients team members are paid the right amount each month!
Why did you choose to come and work with us?
I chose to come and work for Blu Sky because it was an exciting opportunity to work for a forward-thinking accountancy practice. From my first meetings for the interviews here I could feel this was a business that is ambitious, wants to grow and it was a team I wanted to be apart of.
What do you like doing outside of work?
Outside of work I like watching films, going for food and when the weather is good going for long walks.
Last one, have you ever done anything unusual or for charity?
I have done charity work litter picking on Whitley bay beach and repainted a community centre.

We can shout about what it’s like to work here and why you should, but we thought it would be better we ask our existing employees for their insights, starting with our newest recruits.
