She packed up and moved down to Devon with her family for a better life. With the move also came the decision to start a new business venture and that’s where Rosemary Bookkeeping came in.
“I wanted to be able to work for myself to ensure I had a more suitable work-life balance. As I have a young family, I wanted the flexibility to be able to do the school runs and take days off during school holidays to spend time with them,” said Convery.
She originally came across Rosemary Bookkeeping at the National Franchise Exhibition last year. Getting all her ducks in a row, Convery purchased the Rosemary Bookkeeping Exeter franchise to help local businesses with their bookkeeping.
“My goals for Rosemary Bookkeeping Exeter are to help as many local businesses as I can in and around Exeter with their bookkeeping, ensuring they are happy and satisfied with every aspect of our service,” Convery continued. “Having a young family myself, I understand the importance of part-time work for mothers and I want to be able to build a team of bookkeepers around this aspect.”
In a previous role, Convery managed a team of nine employees, therefore she is well equipped to build a successful team of bookkeepers within the Exeter area.
Sujay Patel, Rosemary Bookkeeping brand manager said: “Alison is a fantastic new addition to the Rosemary Network, with her warm and vivacious personality, I know she’s going to do exceptionally well! Adding to this, the expertise Alison brings with her as a qualified chartered accountant are second to none.”
