My role within the PFL family is centred around the business operations, mainly financial. I assist management in assessing the financial position of PFL. This means implementing, updating and improving on the current accounting practises internally whilst providing specific information and documentation to governing bodies. I have also been assisting with our new projects managing the financial aspect and maintaining communication with auditors or lenders to ensure everything goes as smooth as possible.
Outside of my day to day role, PFL have extended numerous opportunities to me for my own personal and professional development. I have been given the chance to study for my Chartered Accountants status of which is half complete, Full Sage Accounts system training, Asset Based Community Development workshops, Government legislation update requirements and mental health in the workplace training.
PFL work hard to meet their Corporate and Social Responsibilities. This has meant that I have been allowed to work with many different projects that help people. One secondment was 18months, from set up through to gaining the Queens Award for Voluntary Services, the project could not of done this without the help of PFL providing me as a service. The project saw us save over 300 tons of “edible food waste” from going to landfill and recycle 95% of that back into the local community via schools, church groups and wellbeing centres.
