Meet The Team – Lauren Broomfield

Job Title:
Finance Assistant

How long have you been at Futurepump?
Since July 2017

Describe a usual day:
Most of my days are quite varied. One of my main tasks is making sure all bank accounts are up to date, which includes processing invoices, doing regular bank reconciliations. and working with Mary, the Finance Assistant in Kenya, to keep the Kenyan accounts up to date.

Other tasks that I do regularly include producing weekly and monthly reports, keeping a record of payment plan customers, and dealing with the taxes for Futurepump Rwanda. I also assist Q, our Financial Director, with many other tasks including preparations for audits and occasionally walking our office dog Tisa! My goal is to eventually qualify as a chartered accountant so any spare time I have at work is spent studying towards the ACCA qualification.

What do you like best about working at Futurepump?
Everyone on the team is so friendly and passionate about what they do, and were all very welcoming when I joined in July. It is also great to be working for a company that are making such a big difference to the lives of many smallholder farmers.

Favourite hobby when not working:
I do a lot of painting and drawing at home, and also enjoy playing the piano. I love doing anything creative!
