Vanessa, said: “I knew from the start that I had made a good career choice in Weatherite…”
“The company sponsored me to further my qualification in the field of Accountancy. Initially enrolling on the AAT course (Association of Accounting Technicians) and then finally passing my ACCA (Chartered Association of Certified Accountants) in 2003.
“This has given me the opportunity to progress from assistant accountant and then on Steve’s retirement to Head of Finance/Company Secretary.”
