I work as the Payroll Manager for Skillfinder International. I really enjoy being able to put my stamp on the role in the time I’ve been here. I’ve introduced a monthly payroll system, which has been great for the company, our contractors and clients. The independence that I have been given from managers has been a great compliment and it means that we have really been able to improve the processes that are in place.
I was head hunted out of the blue by Lorraine who is Darren’s sister. I was trying to get out of agreeing to the initial interview as I had no management experience but Lorraine told me I had nothing to lose and to come into the office. She called after every interview and was always very encouraging.
I like working here because the company has a nice family feel to it. My 3 year old niece often comes into the office and has done since she was tiny and is always so welcomed. I also enjoy the fact that it is quite a jokey office, there’s always a lot of laughter but we all know when to put our heads down and get on with work.
I have picked up a number of skills since working here, I have to work with a number of different people and clients scattered around the world. Working here has hugely improved my communications skills.
