Accounts Assistant

Hi, what is your role at Concept?

I’m an Accounts Assistant primarily responsible for Credit Control although having been here for such a long time I’m familiar with most of our accounts roles.

Tell us about your journey at Concept so far.

I started here in April 2008 as a full time receptionist, then moved across to timesheets for a while until Hayley joined the company at which point I progressed into the accounting side of things. When I returned from Maternity leave in February 2015 I decided to come back part time working 3 days a week in which I have continued to do after returning for a second time.

Why do you love accounting?

I enjoy talking to different people and helping the business run smoothly, supporting our the team with efficient invoicing and credit control.

Why Concept?

Concept was the right opportunity for me at the time, as I was looking for a job with a company I could progress with. I enjoy the vibe in the office and appreciate the flexibility that is granted to me, I have a great home/work life balance.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I am a proud mom of 2, so pretty much all my spare time is spent on family outings.

Finally, if you were a film character who would you be?

Lets go with Lois Griffin from Family Guy, can’t think of anyone else!
