After achieving a degree in Accountancy, I started my career as a management accountant in the North East of England, working in a variety of industries ranging from retail to the pharmaceutical industry.
I had a short career break to have my first son and then a longer one when the twins arrived.
Returning to work after a 5-year gap with little or no childcare provision involved a variety of bookkeeping jobs in a part time capacity, whilst also studying for ACCA.
My last job for a small company involved helping out in any way required, operating the foam press or delivering the product as well as doing the accounts. On a return trip from Manchester in my white van, I decided I needed a bit more of a challenge, so I responded to an advert for a part qualified accountant to assist in the newly established financial systems group of Hoge 100. That was 23 years ago and I’m still here.
Previously I had never stayed in a role for more than 2 years but working for Hoge has offered variety and flexibility and continues to ensure that there is rarely a dull moment. We pride ourselves on the service and support that we provide, and our aim is to support as we would like to be supported.
Knowing the value of the instant answer spurs us to offer a speedy response to all questions, large and small.
