PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE: I worked for a leading firm of Accountants in Blackburn for seven years. I started as a Secretary and worked my way up to Business Services Assistant which allowed me to gain experience in all aspects of accounts including preparation of Monthly Managements and year-end Financial Statements. It was during this time in which I gained my AAT certification up to Level 4.
COMPANY EXPERIENCE: I made the decision to move to JKSL in July 2012 as I was looking for a different challenge and soon realised I would gain this in the Industry Sector. Although I have been brought in to carry out more of the accountant’s duties in-house, my role in accounts typically varies between Purchase/Sales Ledger, Payroll, Banking & Cashflow, Monthly Managements and Yearend reconciliations to Trial Balance.
FAVOURITE PART OF YOUR JOB: Summertime! It’s our busiest time of the year and I tend to thrive through the pressure of an immense workload. Plus, I get to do it whilst the sun is shining through the windows! I also, weirdly enough, love problem solving – anything I can get stuck into and lose myself in, is my favourite!
LEAST FAVOURITE PART OF YOUR JOB: I used to despise credit control, but now it’s just the least favourite part of my job!
INTERESTS AWAY FROM WORK: Taking my boys out for walkies! I have two miniature pinschers, Alpha and Blu – they’re ridiculously adorable! I have also recently qualified as a Reiki Practitioner and currently taking a “Spiritual Development” course. For me, it’s all about the energy and the vibes!
IF I COULD BE ANYWHERE: Right now it would have to be on a beach, sunbathing, with a pleasingly refreshing strawberry daiquiri!
FAVOURITE LINE FROM A FILM: ”Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t how hard you can hit. It’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.” – Rocky, from Rocky Balboa
