Helen’s story


Hello.  My name is Helen and I am the finance officer for Qube. I have worked for Qube for nearly 6 years. Before Qube I worked for PAVO (Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations) as a senior finance officer.

I work closely with Laurel, our chief officer and all my colleagues.

A typical day at Qube involves me in everything to do with the financial management of Qube, which is a charity.  This involves inputting purchase and sales invoices on to the accounts package and raising payments. I look after the card, website, cash and till takings each day and make sure money is assigned to the correct department. I keep a close eye on our bank account, making sure that everything is accounted for.

Important parts of my role include preparing quarterly management accounts and providing finance information for our chief officer and trustees as well as the different projects leaders.

The things I love most about my role are what many people really dislike: figures and spreadsheets! Working with my colleagues is also a lot of fun too, I have missed working with them. I’m looking forward to their company and catching up with what they have been up to over the weekends etc.

Once we can open up Qube HQ again I am really going to value how quick the photocopier is and the convenience of the scanner for copying documents!  In my lunch break I’m going to enjoy popping to Oswestry’s many shops.

The first things I’m going to do when things get back to ‘normal’ are go for a coffee and cake, have drink at a pub and take a trip to the seaside for some fish and chips

My favourite biscuit of all times is a milk chocolate digestive.

For my lockdown songs I would choose anything I can dance to.
