What sector do you work in and have you any thoughts to share about the industry right now?
I work in the accounts department at Affinity Group which covers the Isle of Man, Malta and the Cayman Islands. Affinity operates in various sectors which makes up our diverse client portfolio. From working in accounts at Affinity for some years now, I have built up my expertise and I have gained knowledge across our various sectors.
What led you to this career and how has it progressed so far?
When I left school an opportunity arose to work as a Junior Accountant, I quickly realised that being Accountant is a profession that I wanted to peruse. I am happy with what I have achieved so far and look forward to developing my skillset over the next few years.
What do you do Affinity?
As part of Affinity Group, my role includes a specific focus on Malta whereby I work on both our internal accounts and client accounts.
What are skills are you currently working on?
I am currently working towards completing my ACCA qualification.
What aspects do you love about your job and the company?
I love the working environment at Affinity and I consistently receive a lot of support in progressing in my career. As I deal with both internal and client accounts, every day brings a different task and I like that no day is the same.
What is your favourite way to unwind after a busy day?
A nice hot bubble bath.
What are your passions outside of work?
I love going to the spa to pamper and relax. I also enjoy socialising with friends, going out on weekends and drinking prosecco!
Finally, what is something you have done but will never do again?
Go to the gym before 8am, that was defiantly an experience…
