Joanne took over as Director of NS24 in 2016 and since then has worked really hard to build a strong business offering bookkeeping services throughout the UK. The office in Galashiels was open in 2017 giving Joanne the space needed to continue to grow her business. In January 2018, Joanne began pushing for more clients and after a few months her client list grew to 60+. Due to continued growth, Joanne decided to take on 4 members of staff to help her with the business in July 2018. Joanne continues to put her staff through all the training and qualifications needed to provide the best bookkeeping practices, and hopes to expand further in the near future.
