A Day in the life of Caroline, Head of HR and Finance

As the Head of Finance and Human Resources, Caroline oversees the financial functions that happen at Granby and acts as support to several other departments around the business. Before starting at Granby, Caroline had experience dealing with accounting in the Motor Industry for many well-known car brands and was also a financial manager in the construction industry.

What does a typical day look like?

In a finance role, usually you can have certain tasks that need completing daily, weekly, monthly or annually for example! However, at Granby there isn’t a typical day, which makes Finance very interesting! The usual tasks need completing but there is always a new project or something to look into to give facts and figures to help the Leadership Team/Board make decisions to improve the business in many different ways! Between Finance and HR – no two days at Granby are the same!

What skills are required for this role?

• Attention to detail
• Understanding of processes and being able to look at ways to improve
• Multi-tasking
• Having a strong team to help!

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Producing the monthly Management accounts so I can see how everyone’s hard work is reflected in the numbers!

What is the most challenging aspect of your job?

Finance and HR are support functions to Granby and are here to help but sometimes it is hard to split yourself across all the departments to help with information required throughout the business. That is why having a strong team is essential to help everyone as quickly as possible!
