Who we are

Meet the Jenkins & Co. team.

Jenkins & Co was launched on 11 September 2023 after its founder, Ben, decided to leave the world of employment with Optimising IT and follow his entrepreneurial dreams.

After a conversation with the Directors at Optimising IT, Jenkins & Co had their first client onboard. This was quickly followed by Hazlewoods and a handful of other local businesses, requiring Hannah to join the team part time just six weeks later. We’re currently a team of three (with the aim to be a team of five by March 2025), with reliable contractors on hand to aid our service delivery if required.

We specialise in outsourced finance services and Excel development to help companies optimise their finance workflows. Small businesses, while often being able to bookkeep and prepare basic financials, have enough on their plate without having to learn accountancy too… This is where Jenkins & Co come in. Using a combination of experience and reporting tools, the complicated can be made simple and digestible with ample forward planning to help you keep on top of everything… Without a load of complicated jargon.

Located in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, the experienced team at Jenkins & Co. understand the challenges faced by businesses in our local communities – Cheltenham, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, and Cirencester.

That’s why we offer a unique blend of local expertise and remote support. We take the weight of finance and accounting off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on what you do best – running your business.

Here’s what sets us apart:

  • We know finance, and we know Gloucestershire. Having an existing network of clients and partners, means we understand the specific needs of our clients and can (usually!) recommend people to meet your business needs.
  • Remote convenience. Enjoy the benefits of a dedicated finance team without needing us in your office. We work seamlessly with you online.
  • Focus on what matters. Spend less time on bookkeeping and accounting, and more time growing your business.

Our expertise

Our team of experienced financial professionals brings a combination of in-depth knowledge and cutting-edge software to simplify the financial side of your business. We translate complex data into clear, actionable insights, allowing you to make informed decisions with confidence.
