Meet our Financial Controller
Having joined the Helping Hands family back in 2010, Sian is responsible for our growing finance team. She also works closely with Chris, our Chief Financal Officer, with his financial reporting.
“Though I’ve worked in practice as an accountant for most of my career and enjoyed it, I got nowhere near the amount of satisfaction that I have working for Helping Hands. Every day is challenging, however what I still find amazing is that I can always see the impact I’m making on a daily basis.
“As a team, we are like a family,” Sian added. “Our main aim is to assist our customers, carers and other head office staff in any way we can. I am very proud of my teams and the service we offer.”
