Allana Marrs Accounts Administrator of Clarke Facades comments work, home-life and finance!

Allana, tell us a little about what you do for Clarke Facades.

I work part-time as an Accounts Administrator in the busy Finance Team.  I mainly deal with the purchase ledger – supplier invoices and payments.  Due to the continued growth of the company this keeps me very busy.  I joined the team in May last year and thoroughly enjoy working for the company, I can’t believe I will soon be here a year!

What do you enjoy most about working for Clarke Facades?

Aside from my role in Finance, I enjoy the people and culture in the company, not forgetting our free lunch Thursdays! We are a close-knit team, even with the growth of the company in the last year. Clarke Facades also do a lot of charitable work and fundraising which I enjoy getting involved with. We also benefit from Private Healthcare which encourages a day to day fitness and health focus.

Working part-time must be brilliant – tell us a little about what you get up to outside of work?

Yes, I’m fortunate to be working part-time with Clarkes which really suits the needs of my family! I have a daughter who is nearly 5, so I am very lucky to be able to spend a lot of my time with her in the afternoons. She started Primary 1 in September and loves gymnastics.  I enjoy Zumba classes and going for long family walks.  My husband works shifts so we really try to make the most of our time all together.  With Spring just around the corner; we will spend a lot of our free time on the North Coast at our caravan and on the beach.  I love my work and love the flexibility it allows me.
