What our staff say about us
Assistant Accountant, De Gelsey House
I was one of those people who grew up never knowing what I wanted to do or where I wanted to be when I was older. I had a couple of jobs working in the restaurant/bar industry where I always worked hard but felt like I needed to progress somewhere quicker than the opportunities were presenting themselves
So what felt to be my first proper career, began after my successful application to become the part-time administrator of Stepahead Support, the youth support service within Avante Care & Support which provided help and support to young people and their families.
I will never forget my first day. It was in January 2010 and we had, had one of the biggest snow falls in years. A meeting had been scheduled at one of our support centres in Folkestone. I had never driven to Folkestone before, and that added with the constant snow fall was just another obstacle on an already nervy day. Just to make sure no wrong turns or satnav issues were going to make me late and set a bad first impression, I left really early. I think I arrived an hour early and sat in my car freezing. As soon as I walked in, all the staff welcomed me and the director made me a cup of tea. I was instantly made to feel like one of the team and could tell that my ideas and opinions were appreciated and respected. The job was made permanent just a few months later.
I had the same feeling as when I took up an internally advertised position to become a Finance Assistant. This would start off as maternity cover but helped give me a full-time position within Avante Care & Support. I had already learned so many skills working in the administration role, which I felt could be further developed by this move.
My role as a Finance Assistant became more established as my full-time permanent job was confirmed and I undertook accounting qualifications which were funded and supported by Avante Care & Support. Ensuring payments were made correctly and on time and having a greater input into the accounts of the business, I at last knew the path I wanted my career to take. As I gained valuable experience in my position, completing my AAT qualifications and helping to make significant savings through various supplier contracts, my job title has changed from ‘Trainee Accountant’ to ‘Assistant Accountant’.
