PREM Team Member Spotlight is a quick introduction to a member of our staff from any one of our departments. We hope this will allow you to put a face to a name and give you an insight into what we do here on a day-to-day basis.
Group Financial Controller – Ireland & UK What area of PREM Group do you work in? Finance
Finance department - Head Office Dublin
I joined PREM Group in 2013 on a 6 month contract and stayed (if HR find out that I am still here four years later, I could be in trouble). I had 9 years hotel experience when I joined Prem, though I worked for RSA Insurance plc in the UK for 11 years prior to that.
The cycles with my role are more weekly (looking at sales & payroll), monthly (monthly accounts filing and review) and annual (Budget Cycle in Q4 and Audit in Q1). From one day to the next, I could be anywhere in Ireland or the UK, from Mayo to Manchester or Rochestown to Reading (and they say accountancy is dull!)
The variety. Each day brings new and unexpected challenges and the team in Prem is ideally equipped to rise to these challenges, as our shared entrepreneurial spirit focuses on creating the possible.
I was a husband and a father before I joined and this is respected and understood by the Prem family. Finance has significant peaks in our workload and this is recognised but never exploited.
