Jayne

Founder

Right from my early days I knew I wanted to be of service to business owners, assisting with organisational matters. I love solving problems, so the combination of admin management and bookkeeping is always right up my street!

From a rather daunting position back in 2010, this 'phoenix' has arisen and grown beyond all expectations and is loving both work and life! Starting work in my teens as an admin receptionist for the local council to running a radio station in Nepal before I had kids. I seem to thrive with an uncompromising hunger to always be the best I can be when helping others to overcome their obstacles in both life and work. Bookkeeping came to me through a learning experience, which I grasped and ran with. I qualified and am a member of the International Association of Bookkeepers. 

Outside of work I'm quite a 'spiritual' type of person, into yoga, astrology, crystals and love walking out in nature, being with animals and horse riding. If I didn't do what I do, I think I would like to live on a farm... By the sea! 


Gabby

Marketing and Admin

I joined That's Ideal 2020 as the Marketing and Admin Assistant, as well as training in bookkeeping. 

I've always loved to be creative and learn new skills! Since graduating from Falmouth University with a degree in Film, I have worked in a photography studio, a restaurant and now I've joined Jayne and Neil at That's Ideal! Having a history in working in the creative industry, I understand how financial side of the business can slip because of deadlines and busy creative minds. Being able to help other creatives stay organised with their bookkeeping is a great feeling.

When I'm not at work, I can often be found playing with makeup or losing myself to a videogame or film. I also have my own business in content creation, making videogame and makeup content! Ask me about starting up a new business, how to book a call with Jayne, or just for a chat about the latest movies on our Instagram account.


Neil

Bookkeeper and Account Manager 

Growing up, my brother and I always had an interest in computers and gaming. There was something exciting to me about the possibilities videogames could offer and I enjoyed the teamwork aspect required in the games I liked playing.

Fast forward to post-GCSE's, I qualified from college with an IT diploma and started my first job in sales for a flooring company. One thing lead to another and I took on the challenge of doing the companies bookkeeping whilst also studying a Personal Training degree at college. Fitness is definitely a passion of mine, but solving the problems in bookkeeping is too. After meeting my fiancee, we moved to Falmouth for her University degree and I worked at a farm shop doing their bookkeeping before joining mum at That's Ideal part-time. When Gabby graduated in 2018, we made the move to Lancashire where I began full-time work with That's Ideal.

When I'm not working, you can still find me playing videogames, at the gym or on the barbecue.
