Hi my name's Jeanette and I have been with CA Plus for approx 12 years. Initially I was employed on a one year pilot scheme to deliver training in Nottinghamshire. With the help of a successful 3 year funding application the service was established throughout the county.
I am now the Training Manager and oversee all the training in both the City and County.
The majority of the training provided is working directly supporting treasurers and finance workers in improving their book-keeping skills both manually and computerised along with their accounting systems.
We also deliver training days on a variety of topics from basic book-keeping to full cost recovery. Recently we have also taught the charity finance modules on the Foundation Degree in Business Management (Voluntary sector) Foundation Degree in Business Management (Arts organisations).
Prior to CA Plus I was co-ordinator at Stonebridge City Farm spending many a happy moment retrieving Rosy the pig from the local Co-op car park. During my time at the farm I gained valuable experience in keeping the accounts for a charity which I am able to share with CA Plus user groups.
I spend most of my spare holidays restoring an old farm house in the Eco village of Emen in Bulgaria. The villagers have really taken me under their wing and I love to embrace the laid back life style which includes wholesome home grown food, fishing, hunting, walking and the odd drink or two.
