This time, we have Alys, our HR generalist chatting with Katherine Ogden, a team leader in our Accounts Team!
Tell me a bit about yourself.
I’m originally from South Wales, and spent my childhood in Swansea. I moved to mid Wales in my early teens where my family settled for many years. I moved back to South Wales and started my career in Finance, working for an independent bank in Cardiff. In 2008 I applied for a Sales job with Quartix and started a new career. Eventually I moved over to Accounts in 2009 and have been with the Accounts Team ever since. Not many people know this, but I wanted to be a photographer before my career in Finance took off and so I actually have a qualification in photography, as well as being a qualified Sugar artist, too. My family are very important to me and I spend as much time as I can with them.
How do you find it working for Quartix?
It will be my 10th year at Quartix this year and it has grown incredibly. When I first started, there were only 15 people working in the Newtown office. In the last 10 years we have expanded and grown. I have made some good friends along the way and in 2015 I became a Team leader in the Accounts Team.
How would you describe the Company culture?
I think that we are a friendly, professional company who put the needs of our customers first.
What’s is a day in your life like?
Myself and the whole Accounts team usually have a very busy day. We work with the UK, France and USA teams. I’m the Team Leader for the Sales Ledger team and we ensure that all invoices due to our customers have been checked, raised and emailed out. On average we raise between 230 and 300 invoices a day. We ensure that all new orders have the corresponding contract details, and make sure that all customer queries are dealt with either by telephone or email.
