The Ravenridge team
We are a husband and wife team with decades of experience each within our chosen fields.
Having spent many years living and working in one of the toughest environments in the world, South Africa – we are happy to be back on home soil.
Kim Hockaday - Bookkeeping | Payroll | Recruitment
Kim was born in Yorkshire and has spent the last three decades within the Accounting & HR arena. She has a vast array of experience within a multitude of sectors and spent a number of years working as a bookkeeper in practice. During her last five years in Cape Town, she owned and ran an Accounting, Consulting & HR practice. This was sold just before leaving to come home to the UK.
Kim gained her experience the old fashioned way, by working her way up from a reception position back in the 80’s to eventually becoming the Group Financial / HR Manager for a large telecoms business with branches in all major centres of South Africa (Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth & Johannesburg).
Since arriving back in the UK, she has spent her time getting to grips with UK business standards and regulations and has also completed a number of study courses in bookkeeping, payroll and recruitment.
Now she is ready to bring her particular flair, passion and enthusiasm for small enterprise to her countrymen.
Steve Hockaday - IT Support Services
Originally from the Isle of Wight, Steve met and married Kim back in 1990. They have two sons who are currently taking London by storm.
Steve started his career as an electrician and after a few years had the opportunity to move into an IT role – one he accepted gladly as he was passionate about all things computer in his spare time.
Having spent the last thirty two years within a corporate environment, he is looking forward to working with small business owners and helping them achieve the most benefit from their IT infrastructure while keeping costs low. He is an absolute whizz at troubleshooting and really loves a challenge.
In his spare time, Steve is an avid mountain biker and thoroughly enjoys all Devon has to offer in terms of outdoor lifestyle. He is relatively new to it and if you do perchance see him huffing his way up the B3344 near Chudleigh, do give him a honk on your horn in support!
