“Who’d have guessed the words ‘passion’ and ‘accounts’ could come in the same sentence?”

Since leaving school in 2006 I worked in various restaurants and bars, however, I’ve always had a passion for accounts work. In 2015 I made the decision to enrol myself onto an accounting course, which is where I met Maxine Lester’s then finance manager. Having struggled to begin my career in finance, I jumped at the chance when I discovered that a position had become available with Maxine as their accounts assistant.
I started in April 2016 and the team gave me a warm welcome, making me feel completely at home. I was delighted to be promoted to Accounts Manager in September 2016, allowing me to stretch myself even further. I am now the Finance Team Director which has given me the opportunity to assist the other directors make business decisions. As we have grown there are added challenges each day but I continue to thrive under this change and enjoy keeping us ahead of the ever growing legislation requirements!
One of the problems in the office is there is much less physical work than when I was in restaurant, and the office has a constant flow of chocolate and cake – oh dear! I continue to try and offset this by going to the gym, not always with great enthusiasm!
