CV (Curriculum Vitae) / Résumé

Examples include Kent & Medway I was an Analyst, where I worked on data relating to over 300 centres. The role also involved producing reports, providing costing information and assisting in other projects.

At The London Borough of Croydon, I modelled a budget of £187 million, converted the old chart of accounts to the new and worked on the closure of year end.

At Bromley NHS Trust, I conducted a monthly revue of income and expenditure against the budgets of two departments and advised department heads/budget holders on variances. I also attended meetings with the budget holders to advise and guide them on any concerns they had. The reports were clear and easy to understand.

At The Careers Development Group I modelled the budget for 50 centres across the UK, all by myself. The Careers Development Group work with The Jobcentre to provide training for those who have been on Jobseekers Allowance for more than six months.

All my roles have had aspects of data manipulation and analysis. All tasks have been submitted to tight deadlines. I work well on my own and am a good team player. I have also carried out the role of Finance Directors, when they have either left the company or gone away on holiday.

Have also worked on Financial Modelling Projects, where according to the Jobsearch Sites, you need a PHD in Mathematics. Also have the experience of working on Due Diligence of Acquisitions with PWC at Forest Healthcare.

I also have excellent systems skills.
