WHO I HELP
All staff at AAB but primarily the AAB Leadership Team & the AAB Board.
HOW I HELP
Managing the Finance Team. Financial Reporting. KPI Reporting. Budgeting.
“SUPPORTING THE WHOLE BUSINESS.”
Linda Monk is Finance Director heading up our internal Finance team. Her role encompasses financial reporting, budgeting, and reporting against our KPIs.
Based in our Aberdeen office, Linda works extensively with all divisions of the business to ensure we have accurate and timely financial information to enable us to run the business and make critical decisions.
“I joined AAB on a placement year and then returned full time to AAB once I’d graduated. I’ve trained and built my career in AAB, and I’ve been given many opportunities to develop and progress over the years.
I initially worked within the Audit team, but an opportunity arose to join the internal Finance team and since then the team has grown and gone from strength to strength.”
WITH GROWTH COMES OPPORTUNITY
“I’ve loved being hands on in the past, so it’s a big change to step back and let the team take on more of the day-to-day tasks and responsibilities.
As Finance Director my role is now more focussed around preparing for the growth of AAB. This includes putting systems, people and processes in place to be ready for growth in the future. It also includes continually looking at how we use technology to streamline processes and save time.”
EVER CHANGING & IMPROVING
“The finance team processes and reporting has changed significantly over the past few years. It is more important than ever that the Stakeholders have accurate, up to date information to help them run the business.
As the firm has grown and we’ve added new locations, I’m now interacting and working with more people and divisions to understand what they need from the Finance team and how we can provide it. Integrating new businesses into AAB is a challenge but we use it to learn and develop the team and our processes.”
FLEXIBLE WORKING FOR INDIVIDUALS
“I love working with and building the team, they are a great mix of individuals. So, it’s vitally important as part of my leadership role that I understand what each of my team members want and need to make their time working at AAB as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.
We offer team members lots of flexibility around working hours, hybrid working and training and development. With the growth of the AAB group this gives the team much more varied experience and further opportunities to develop a career in AAB.”
