Gemma Hearfield

Financial Controller, Leadership Group

Professionally, I'm passionate about...

Building a team who are empowered to do their job, feel happy in their work, and are always striving to learn and grow with me. With the right people in the right places, we get the opportunity to demonstrate how invaluable an internal finance team can be, while breaking the mold of how the traditional finance function is perceived (having a laugh is always encouraged here)!

My biggest career highlight...

Each time I get to work closely with my team, to help them learn a new skill or understand a new concept, it reminds me of the spark I have for what I do, it is those moments I remember most clearly.

Favourite leadership figure...

Annemarie Papelard, our CFO, has taught me so much in the last 4 years we have worked together, not only relating to Accounting and the technical side of our jobs, but the way she manages people and can see what people need to get the best out of them. Anna’s passion for helping those around her and her ability to translate that into analytical bites for me to digest has completely changed the way I see management and myself in a leadership role.

Favourite quote...

Just because someone carries it well, doesn’t mean it isn’t heavy
