I’ve worked as Accounts & Payroll Manager at Mainstay for approaching 7 years. Joining within the first year of opening, it’s been interesting seeing Mainstay grow from what we were to what we are now.
I’d worked in the Recruitment sector previously, but I had no experience in Payroll, Accounts or as a manager. No job is perfect but overall Mainstay is a great company to work for. I have been given opportunities to develop my career which has, in turn, contributed to my own personal development.
Since working here I’ve enhanced my skills and become a dependable member of staff and as the company has grown so has my department. I have recruited, interviewed, trained, developed, and supported my own
small team. As manager, I oversee operations and support 3 members of staff. I alternate between our two offices, Walsall and Coventry, and I enjoy the flexibility in choosing where I work.
I think my recruitment background has given me invaluable insight when moving into a back-office role. I’m well versed with dealing with clients and workers meaning I can intercept many problems before they arise and can offer quick solutions when issues come up. I know what makes everyone tick, and this benefits me no end in achieving success in my role.
In my spare time I try to de-stress and every other weekend I go to Villa Park to watch Aston Villa. I have been a season ticket holder for many years.
