David Bailey

Audit & Accounts Assistant

David took an unusual route into Accountancy as he originally studied Sports Science and Personal Training at the University of Bedfordshire. David left the UK in 2015 to travel across South-East Asia and Australia. He started his travels in Cambodia before heading to Australia for a mixture of travel and work over 2 years. After another number of months travelling around South-East Asia, David returned to the UK in 2018.

Upon returning, David decided to pursue a career in Accountancy and joined Dunkleys in 2018. Initially, David began in the Payroll department before moving to support internal finance and eventually settling in the accounts department.

David is now working towards an ICAEW ACA qualification and is gaining practice experience in many areas of Accounting including tax, VAT, bookkeeping and Audit. David’s area of expertise however lies in the production of small limited company and sole trader accounts.

Outside of work, David is an avid Leicester City and Leicester Tiger’s supporter and an exercise fanatic. He also enjoys anything to do with outdoor or water-based recreation may that be hiking, camping, scuba diving, sports, and more recently mountain biking.
