Shenward has appointed a new accountant with specialist cloud accounting expertise as it looks to build its multi service and develop its ongoing digital transformation strategy.

Sabhia Quaddus has joined the multidisciplinary practice as assistant accountant and will be based at the firm’s new HQ in Cleckheaton.

In her new role, Quaddus will be responsible for supporting a wide range of clients with the adoption of cloud accounting and bookkeeping, further developing Shenward’s digital offering.

Shepreviously worked as a financial advisor for a leading bank and as a bursar for an independent school, and will bring this knowledge as well as her “extensive” cloud and financial experience to Shenward to enable more clients to progress with their own digital accounting plans.

Sherad Dewedi, managing partner of Shenward, said: “We’re proud to have Sabhia join Shenward, particularly at such an exciting moment of growth for the company. Sabhia has a unique perspective and insight as not only does she have incredible skills from her career experience, but having experienced the client side of accountancy, she truly understands the needs of clients.”

The pair were introduced when Shenward was appointed as the lead accountants for the school Quaddus previously worked at, which later closed.

Quaddus said: “It was sad to see my previous workplace face closure, but when looking for a new career venture I knew Shenward was a reputable firm and a place that would allow me to further my experience.

“I had watched the firm grow from a distance as a client and working for a growing firm was a goal for my next career move. It was unfortunate circumstances, but it’s amazing how things work out.”

She added: “As I move forward with my career at Shenward, it’s a privilege to know we are always working to find the best and most innovative ways to help our clients receive their accounting services. My experience so far at Shenward’s has been great, it’s a friendly team and a lovely place to work.”
