Management Team & Accounting
Hi ! My name is Nigel and it is my job to look after all matters “Financial” for Enable (Sheffield). I am not an Accountant by trade but I am used to managing money. My career started back in 1976 in Construction. I was part of the Commercial Surveying Team. It was my job to produced estimates and quantities for projects to produce a financial budget and manage and monitor costs for the work as the projects proceeded. My job entailed working in the North and the Midlands. When the recession of 2010 hit I decided to take early retirement. Whilst my construction career had ended I always thought that I had something to offer someone but how would I find it?
For many years I had known of the “blue building” next to the doctors surgery but I didn’t know what happened there. One day I decided to find out. That day I met Alan, the General Manager. He told me all about Enable and what services Enable offered. After much conversation I decided to start volunteering for one day per week to produce a new website. I volunteered for about 18 months in total and after the website was done I started supporting the Learners. Unbeknown to me at the time but the last 18 months turned out to be a long interview by Alan. He had listened to what I had done in my previous career and lined me up to take over the role of Financial Controller if I wanted to. The rest is History as the saying goes !
