I joined African Adventures in August 2016 as the Finance and Admin Assistant, but my role has since developed into Finance Officer. I help to support our Finance and Office Manager in various financial administration tasks for the company and our charity, African Adventures Foundation.
I am happy to work in a company that strives to make a difference, not just to the communities in Africa, but to our volunteers in the UK. I travelled to Kenya with a few groups in the summer of 2018 and saw first-hand how our volunteers develop a new perspective and gain confidence on our trips.
My work has been quite varied during my time at African Adventures, and I have been involved in a few projects alongside my day-to-day responsibilities. One that I am particularly proud of is gathering a shipment of computers to be sent to Kenya. It was hard work, but worth it when I hear about the impact they have had at our partner projects.
My interests outside of work include reading, playing computer games, climbing, swimming, and playing squash.
