Big Hand Team

Mick Seddon

Mick Seddon
Director

As an accountant with three decades of experience under his belt, it’s pretty fair to say that Mick has collated a considerable wealth of financial knowledge over the years. His specialty is collaborating with business owners and helping businesses to grow. One of his biggest successes came from leading a buyout of an organisation and driving it from the brink of financial disaster to becoming the UK’s top accountancy firm of the year within a decade. Expertise he takes to every client he works alongside. He’s proud to hold the record for the fastest ever filing for the end of year accounts in the UK. Day-to-day Mick manages the running of the business and works hands-on with clients to keep their financial affairs in order and strive towards their business goals. Outside of work, he is passionate about sport. His love of rugby has switched over the years from playing to watching; something that keeps him sane when he’s not busy saving the world!

As the other half of the dynamic duo that initially made up Big Hand, Hannah has worked alongside Mick for over ten years. As operations director, Hannah is the conductor that keeps the business running harmoniously. Between working on the client accounts herself, or delegating to the appropriate member of the team, Hannah ensures that high levels of care are put into each and every accountancy client. Outside of the office, Hannah loves keeping fit with her dogs and horse, and loves meals out with friends and family.

Sophie Seddon
Marketing Manager

Since 2013, Sophie has been an integral part of the Big Hand team. As a social butterfly, Sophie is mostly responsible for introducing new clients to the company. If you’re an avid networking, you’re most likely to meet Sophie at local events. Alongside attracting new business, she also assists with account management, and she manages payroll on behalf of clients. For fun, Sophie loves to keep fit running or playing korfball with her team. She is also in the middle of learning a new language and so her most recent challenge is attempting to read Harry Potter in Dutch.

Dylan joined Big Hand as an apprentice immediately after college. Fast forward a few years, he is now qualified after gaining his Level 4 AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting. Deservedly, he has been promoted to the accounts senior, he keeps himself busy across a variety of financial roles. No two days are the same. He might be preparing the books for one client while managing the VAT return for another. His biggest love for accounting is taking what some business owners can only describe as a mess, and transforming it into an organised set of accounts; a process he finds thoroughly rewarding. As a family man, Dylan loves spending time with his family on weekends and winning with his football team.

Paul Cowburn
Payroll Senior

Paul is our Payroll Guru! We added Paul into our team when we expanded into Leyland, and what a great asset he has been. His knowledge and experience is second to none and he always goes the extra mile to help our clients. His talents don’t just lie within payroll though as he also helps with some of our other accounting services, as well as being king of the dancefloor. Outside of work he loves to spend time with his family and is currently renovating his house and has acquired a green thumb.

Petra has recently joined the team as a bookkeeper. Already she has proven herself to be a valuable asset to the team and has managed to turn around some impressive work challenges. Originally from the Czech Republic, she enjoys travelling back to visit.  Petra is also a loving mother who somehow manages to juggle healthy eating and fitness into her weekly routine. Even if we do sometimes nudge her off the band-wagon with the temptation of biscuits!

As our latest addition to the Big Hand family, Taseen, better known as Taz, is our new Accounts Assistant. Taz

who is already Level 2 AAT qualified, will be continuing his studies whilst working with us, working towards his

full accountancy certifications. He has a very keen attitude and is eager to keep on developing himself. Outside of

work Taz loves eating and pretending that he regularly goes to the gym. He admits that is has been a few months

since he actually passed the threshold of said gym. We are looking forward to watching him grow with us. Look

out for him at future expos as he aims to join Sophie at a few more events!
