Up Close and Personal - Safeer Butt

I am currently one of the newest members of Genie Accountancy, and I am relishing the  opportunity to be a part of a fantastic team. What initially struck my eye was the coverage relating to their recent nomination for ‘Medium Practice of the Year Award’ at the Practice Excellence Awards. Being part of an approachable and supportive team has facilitated me in settling into the company and I certainly do not regret making the move. 

It all started back at school, in Year 12 when I had no idea which university course to take but knew maths and numbers were my strong subjects. I ended up taking a week’s placement in Wembley at a Chartered Accounting firm with the aim of getting a feel of the industry. Following this I knew accounting was the career I wanted to pursue and started studying an Accounting and Finance degree at the University of West London. In the summer of the 2014 I graduated with a 2.1 degree and commenced a job at a general local practise firm however, I was looking for a change- somewhere I could develop my knowledge and Genie Accountancy was the perfect choice. 

I am a part qualified ACCA Chartered Accountant something I wish to complete in the not too distant future. My role as Client Accountant, gives me a great deal of responsibility especially in building a strong customer relationship by getting to know my clients and their business. I am able to offer complete peace of mind meaning my clients can concentrate on their profession in the contracts they obtain while I deal with all the necessary legal accounts work. Orange Genie Accountancy has a great ethos of excellence, compliance and customer service, which made it an easy choice when deciding to join the team, one I’m sure I will never regret. 

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends and am a sports enthusiast mainly Football and Cricket. With football I have played at a fairly high standard and having recently had the privilege of playing with professionals in the likes of Daniel Boateng (previously with Arsenal) and Danny Uchechi (previously with West Ham and Nigeria U23 International) just to name a couple, when I was out in Norway in November 2014 playing in front of scouts from all over the world. I started my football career as a Wycombe Wanderers Youth player and also had trials at League 2 side Barnet FC. In terms of cricket I played County Cricket at youth level but then never took it any further and now, I just play in a family team known as Lahore Tigers.
