Q&A with Grant
When did you join Survey Solutions?
September 2019 as the new Finance Director. As FD, I am responsible for all things financial and accounting. Compliance is a big part of my role which includes legal, taxes and risk management. I regularly get involved in HR matters, enjoy all aspects of working with people and especially the variety of work that this role brings.
Why did you choose accountancy as a career?
I was reasonably good at Maths and really enjoyed working with numbers and people. You spend a third of your life working and a third sleeping so if you can find a career where you love coming to work every day it’s a lot easier to get out of bed in the morning! Chartered Accountancy does just that for me and I’m pleased I made that choice.
Describe Survey Solutions in three words
Trusting, inclusive and motivating.
An interesting fact about me is…
I was Honorary Treasurer of The St. Andrews Golf Club for five years and won its Club Championship twice.
Outside of work I enjoy…
Days out with family, travelling, eating out, golfing and occasionally going to the gym!
