Tenant spotlight: Turpin Bookkeeping Services feeling safe at home at the HEP
The accountancy firm Turpin Bookkeeping Services has been based at the Humber Enterprise Park (HEP) for two years this month. We caught up with the owner, Liz Turpin, who says she is feeling safe and secure in her surroundings as her business goes from strength to strength.
Established by Liz in 2011, Turpin Bookkeeping Services has over 20 years’ experience in business accounting, and works with a range of businesses throughout the Hull and East Riding region from sole traders, business start-ups, growing enterprises and established companies.
The company moved to the HEP in 2015 after being previously based in Hull city centre, and Liz has found that her new location feels a lot safer as well as being closer to their home.
Liz told us that the company’s staff feel more secure and happier, and that the site’s 24/7 security gives her peace of mind when she works late on her own. Liz’s daughter and fellow accountant Bel described the HEP’s security team as “brilliant”, adding that she feels part of a HEP family “where everyone cares about each other”.
Turpin Bookkeeping Services’ unique selling point is that the company will create bespoke packages for clients and will work on site within customer’s offices. This means that the team will often need to travel, so being positioned just off the A63 motorway network and close to Brough train station with its direct trains to Leeds and London has proven to be a real benefit.
Liz added that being so close to the Brough wild life spot the Haven makes for relaxing lunch breaks. The Haven is effectively a small-scale marina with little boats, and on a pleasant day you can have a nice walk around the water’s edge.
Back at the office, business is booming as the company looks to take on a fifth member of staff after starting with just the one. Liz told us that by working within client’s offices, she can interact with staff more, build better relationships and get the company’s name out there. She describes the last 6-8 months as “crazy”.
