KATIE

Finance Executive

All About Katie 

I’m the Assistant Management Accountant at AAF, and part of the wonderful Finance team! I joined AAF in October 2015 as the Finance Grad, and began my studies towards my CIMA qualification. I should be sitting my last exam this year and be looking to qualify in October 2018 – yay! I truly love food (too much…), so I am a Foodie at work, and a true Foodie at heart!

Experience:

I graduated from Newcastle University in 2014 with a 1st Class Degree in Business Management. I then spent one year within recruitment, working for Michael Page and recruiting within the Finance sector. This was a tough but rewarding year, but most importantly it made me realise that perhaps Finance was the career for me, and now here I am!  

Strengths:

I would like to think that my communication skills are one of my strengths – I can talk to anyone! I am also a bit of a perfectionist (which can be a weakness at times), but I think this enables me to always do my best at everything I do. 

Proudest moment:

Achieving a 1st Class Degree was one of my proudest moments (especially since it meant that I beat all of my brothers – I am slightly competitive!). However, that is most probably surpassed by my achievement to date in my CIMA exams. I am so proud to have passed all exams first time, and hope to continue with that record with my last few exams!

Beliefs: 

Quite simply, I believe in being a good person. Above all else, that is what matters the most.

Passions: 

One of my biggest passions is my family – I come from a big (and crazy!) family, who mean everything to me. Other than that, I love to shop, I also enjoy (to some degree…) keeping fit and a spot of baking when I can find the time!
