Lorna Hubbard - Payroll & Accounts Assistant
I have always worked within payroll and finance throughout my career and have now returned to recruitment having first worked in a small agency in London many years ago. Since then I have worked across several sectors including banking, consultancy, and manufacturing. I pride myself on accuracy and attention to detail and love being given responsibility and ownership of this important function.
My role as Finance Assistant for Lawrence Dean is really broad, however one of the key elements I love is the weekly payroll for our temporary workers. It’s incredibly important to me that anyone working for us is paid in a timely manner and I pride myself on my 99.9% accuracy rate. At Lawrence Dean we handle our full payroll in-house and although this is time consuming and costly it is really important as it enables us to comfortably deliver the promises we make to our candidates. I handle all payroll queries in real time, advise candidates on tax, holiday and anything else finance related! On the other side I work in partnership with our clients to ensure they are invoiced in the way they wish and any queries they have are also handled in real time.
I joined Lawrence Dean Recruitment as their business approach was exciting to me! Lawrence Dean prides itself on being different to its competitors and I truly believe we are. Having worked through other recruitment companies on a temporary basis I had quite a poor perception of the value of being a temp, my experience was that once placed in a temporary role there was no other contact and they gave no advice about AWR. Our team have a very forward thinking approach, are supportive, respectful and professional not only to each other but to everyone they come into contact with. It is a pleasure to be part of the company!
Outside of work my family keeps me busy with two teenagers in the house, our two dogs and various other pets. We are an outdoors, camping and festivals family, involved in the usual sporting activities that come with having boys!
