What’s been your favourite project you’ve worked on at Apartment Group?
I’ve enjoyed working on a number of projects, many of them to improve procedures, avoid duplication, and to work smarter. We have three staff in the finance team studying CIMA/AAT exams, and I have enjoyed providing training in this area. I have also established various written procedures.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the autonomy, if you have a solution to a problem you don’t have to go through five committees, you can put it in place quickly.
I enjoy working with professional committed people, and picking up knowledge from all departments.
One of the most challenging periods was when two senior members of the finance team left in mid 2014, it was an opportunity to broaden my experience.
What makes Apartment Group different?
It’s the entrepreneurial spirit and the can do attitude throughout the group, along with the opportunity to progress quickly. Anyone can come up with an idea that could make the difference.
