Chris Vickers

Chris Vickers

Chris is the Director and founder of SQK accountancy.

He is a fully qualified Accountant; and started SQK in 2015 as he saw there was a gap in the market for an approachable, young, accountancy team to help small and micro-businesses to get started.

He also helps small businesses to understand the ever so slightly confusing tax system!

Chris has close links with the business community in Manchester, and has partnerships with Lloyds Bank, People Plus, Barclays Bank and HSBC. And, he is often found working at the Lloyds Business Hub in Manchester.

When he is not working, he is interested all things nerdy including playing board games and drinking good quality ale where ever it can be found in Manchester (though not always at the same time).

Rhys Binks

Rhys is the Apprentice at SQK accountancy.

He is the newest employee at SQK Accountancy learning from Chris to become an accountant whilst completing an apprenticeship. He is mostly found within the Innospace as well as accompanying Chris and Iain to any networking events they go to.

Going forward, he would like to become a fully qualified accountant and continue working with SQK Accountancy and assisting with the success of the company.

Outside of work he enjoys playing video and trading card games with friends including Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh and whilst at home he can be found imitating a sloth.

Alicia Turner

Alicia is the part-time Administrative Assistant at SQK accountancy

She is responsible for keeping the company organised on a day to day basis and can be found mainly at the Innospace, alongside Chris. She works for us part-time whilst also attending Manchester Metropolitan University.

At MMU she currently studies Microbiology and Molecular Biology and is looking to move onto a Master’s degree, alongside working with us, once she has completed the 3-year Undergraduate course.

When not working or studying, Alicia likes to spend time with friends or watching Netflix in bed to recover.
