Senior Bookkeeper

Linda has been with 3rd Arm Admin for near on 6 years now. Her background has always been in office administration and she fell into bookkeeping by accident in her early 20’s after being given the opportunity to help reconcile petty cash and became hooked.

Linda thoroughly enjoys the variety in her role – no two days are ever the same. Her aim is to make the bookkeeping / payroll stress free for clients, so they can get on with what they love to do.

Karen Mason
Karen Mason
Senior Bookkeeper

Introducing Karen, who started with 3rd Arm Admin in late 2018 as a bookkeeper. Karen has a background in all things finance with freight and logistics companies, government and more recently small engineering. Her favourite job of the past was working for global shipping company P&O before they were bought out by Nedlloyd.

Karen loves a good bookkeeping conundrum to try and work through. She is keen to understand how things work, so that she can offer useful input. The detail is important to her as it’s the nitty gritty info that make up the full picture, so one thing that you can be 100% sure of is that Karen will leave no stone unturned to get to the bottom of a situation.
