This month we introduce one of our Quickbooks and Xero experts, Matthew Keane. 


What is your role within Thomas Westcott?

I am currently training for my ACCA qualification. My roles in the office include, accounts prep, audit, tax and bookkeeping which most recently has led to the onboarding of cloud clients on to software’s such as Xero and QuickBooks. I work alongside a lot of charities.

How long have you been working here?

I started September 2012 when I was only 18 and baby faced.

What do I like about working in the Plymouth office?

Working in one of the larger offices in Thomas Westcott means there is a wide range of knowledge within the office and also offers a variety of clients to be involved with. It is also a big advantage I only live 10 minutes from the office! 

What do you enjoy most about working at Thomas Westcott?

The staff in the Plymouth office are brilliant and they have given me the opportunity to study for my ACCA qualification.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy going to the gym and playing football as regularly as possible, unfortunately due to studying the latter has taken a bit of a back seat. I also enjoy socialising and spending plenty of time in the pub.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you?


Sky/BT package to watch all the football 

Never ending beer tap

Do you have any hidden talents?

I'm a bit of a chameleon, able to adapt to many situations. Plus, I'm really good at origami!
