We’re wrapping up our ‘Meet the Finance Team’ series by introducing you to our final colleague.
Meet Hannah Mulvey, our Management Accountant.
Hannah joined us over a year ago and has enjoyed the number of opportunities she has been involved in since joining us. Using her passion to build connections, Hannah has worked across Group and Operational Finance and is now a valued member of our Tottle Finance Team.
Learn more about Hannah’s journey below…
How long have you worked in Finance?
My career in Finance started in September 2019 when I joined Royal Mail’s Graduate Scheme, after graduating from the University of Sheffield. In April 2022, I became a qualified accountant and joined the newly formed Group Finance team at TCFG.
What made you consider a career in Finance?
After studying Financial Mathematics at University, I decided to apply for Finance Graduate Schemes as I found I was more interested in the financial elements of my course. I wasn’t set on a specific job after university, so thought a Graduate Scheme would give me a varied introduction to Finance and allow me to understand what elements I did and didn’t enjoy. Three and a half years later I’m still on that journey!
What is so great about being in Finance at TCFG?
I really enjoy working in Finance at TCFG due to the large element of cross functional working. Building connections across our three different strands of Finance (Group, Commercial and Operational) allows you to build a wider understanding of the Finance team and of the business. For me, I have been lucky enough to work in both Group Finance and Operational Finance, so have established a great network across the business that will be invaluable to me, both now and going forwards.
What opportunities are there within TCFG for Finance?
I’m really lucky to have already had so many opportunities at TCFG. Joining in April 2022 as an Assistant Group Accountant, when Group Finance was newly formed, I had an incredible support network which aided my development into a new Group Accountant role in November 2022. In April 2023, I transitioned to an internal development opportunity in Operational Finance to address the gaps in my knowledge of the FMCG industry. I am incredibly grateful for these opportunities, which have been championed by my line managers and SLT – I know I am very well supported at TCFG!
Why should you consider a career with TCFG?
I love that your career at TCFG can be on a wider and larger Group level or at a smaller but more detailed site level. From my personal experience, TCFG offers an incredible support network both within the departments themselves and in the wider network too. The Compleat Communities are a great example of this!
Describe an average day at TCFG.
No day is the same in my current role. Working in Operational Finance requires flexibility to be able to respond to changing needs from our operations. Daily, weekly and monthly reporting is required to track performance and identify any action required in a timely manner. An element of business partnering is also required to ensure departmental managers are responsible for their spend versus budget and challenged where necessary. Adhoc analysis is also required to respond to any emerging information in order to ensure control is maintained.
