Job Title: Accounts Assistant
When did you join HMK? September 2021
What does your role involve? My job covers all aspects of accounts administration, such as chasing up invoices and debtors.
Previous experience and areas of expertise: I previously worked for 16 years as a credit controller at a leading chemical manufacturer.
Why did you want to join HMK? I was looking for a new challenge and wanted to gain further accounts experience. For me, when I came to HMK, it just felt right. It seemed like a really interesting company and I wanted to be part of the team.
What’s the best thing about working at HMK? I’m really enjoying it so far and finding it interesting learning all about the company and what they do. The best thing about HMK is the people. Everyone is really friendly and always willing to help each other out.
What’s your proudest achievement? I climbed the Cairngorm Mountain in Scotland at the end of 2020, which is the sixth highest summit in the UK. Standing at the summit knowing I’d done it was a proud moment for me.
Fun fact about Sophie: I’m a massive fan of the 90s and I once sat in a bar for seven hours just to meet Shane Lynch from Boyzone.
