"I enjoy seeing the Company's forecasts and the resulting Company growth."
In her teens, Kelly became interested in Higgins Construction, and volunteered for two weeks' work experience to gain some insight into the Company. What she learned during this time across different departments, including surveying, IT and accounts, gave her the inspiration she needed to pursue a career in the Company.
Kelly's strength was maths – an A-level qualification – and, in 2007, Kelly landed her first job at the Company as Accounts Assistant. The role was a perfect fit for Kelly, whose affinity with numbers and attention to detail give her a natural talent suited to a career in accounting. Kelly was offered a full-time role in the accounts department, and today, she's a Trainee Accountant, responsible for producing the management accounts for both Higgins Construction and Higgins Homes, as well the year-end accounts.
For two and a half years, Kelly has studied for her Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification through BPP University while working for Higgins, and she's eagerly preparing for her final exam this December. Kelly's skills in numbers analysis and reporting make her an asset to Higgins. She enjoys seeing the Company grow and being part of its future, and her caring, calm and approachable nature mean many departments across the business welcome her input.
