A passionate, extremely talented qualified accounting professional with highly developed technical and analytical skills accompanied by the ability to establish strong working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. Commercially astute, with strong problem-solving and decision-making capabilities, together with excellent communication skills that have been demonstrated in many contexts, with a reputation for `making things happen` and delivering results
My career initially began at Costain Group plc where I joined as part of the Finance Graduate Programme. I quickly gained a reputation for being very analytical, highly organized, and proactive and demonstrating an ability to remain calm and composed during times of stress and increased workload.
I occupied a number of important roles within the Finance function across the business including Divisional Finance Manager where I was consistently recognized as a high performer, inspiring trust and confidence in both my colleagues and senior finance leadership enabling the smooth execution of business activities.
Outside of work, I am absolutely mad about all things sport – especially football! I play regularly with my friends as well as always watching games live on the television or in person when I am able to get my hands on tickets. I also have a keen interest in Formula One, Tennis and Cricket.
