I started working at Marshall McAdam when it opened in 2009, so I have been around to see the company grow and mature. My role as Finance Manager is to worry about the finances and let the rest of the team run the business. I implemented and now maintain the company’s accounting system, and I developed a way to streamline the payroll, timesheet and invoicing system to integrate with our CRM. I also act as a mentor to our very talented support staff and ensure they are well-trained in their finance and payroll-related tasks.
It is very important to keep our contractors happy in any way possible, and I like to ensure that their needs are being met by my team. The contractors may not know it, but they are my highest priority … after Hamish, Ben and Tim of course! My aim is to maintain positive relationships with our clients’ finance departments and ensure that any information we provide is accurate and clear.
I consider myself very lucky to be doing something I enjoy, mostly because I am constantly challenged by the day-to-day needs of our growing business. This job has become a long-term relationship - it’s the longest I’ve continuously worked for anyone! Finding a job that is flexible to your needs can be challenging, and our working environment from the people to the office is great.
Outside of work I share my life with mad Tigers supporters. I maintain my sanity by going on long walks with my border collie Dina.
