Last month, Karmelle’s brilliant Accounts Assistant, Claire, announced that she was moving to Singapore. The prospect of recruiting for her replacement was daunting – but we needn’t have worried! When she heard about the vacancy, Claire’s predecessor, Vicki Hussain, jumped at the chance to rejoin team Karmelle. A chartered accountant and mum-of-two, she’ll be managing payroll, processing invoices, ordering materials, arranging deliveries and liaising with customers and suppliers…
Welcome back, Vicki! We’re delighted to have you. When did you first join the Karmelle team?
I first joined the Karmelle team in 2013. Back then, my role involved looking after the accounting function at the business – and we were a team of around ten!
And what brought you back to Karmelle?
I was extremely happy to hear about the opening at Karmelle again and jumped at the opportunity. As far as employers go, I can genuinely say Brian and Peter are the best I have come across, and it feels great to be a part of the team again. The staff at Karmelle are also really friendly, and this adds to the positive environment anyone would want in a workplace.
Karmelle has grown considerably since you first joined the team in 2013. What will your role involve now?
Since leaving Karmelle, I have completed my ACCA, and am now a qualified chartered accountant. I am returning as Accounts Assistant, but feel I am able to offer more to the department.
Tell us a bit more about yourself! What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my free time, I enjoy yoga, martial arts and jogging. My children are a big part of my world, and most of all I enjoy spending quality time with them!
