Develop bolsters Finance Team with new appointment
03 February 2021
A warm welcome to Daniel Butcher who joined Develop's Finance Team last week as a Payables Controller.
After the departure of several temporary colleagues, Daniel joins the team in a permanent capacity and is set to add a fresh perspective to the department. His role will largely entail reviewing & verifying invoices, processing expenses, monitoring accounts to ensure payments are up to date, assisting with month end closing and maintaining accurate historical records...amongst much more! Phew!
A wealth of customer-facing and finance experience
After a varied career in retail, including a stint as an Assistant Store Manager at Next, Daniel's career path took a turn almost a decade ago and he was able to follow his true passion; accounts. In recent years, he has worked in numerous finance-based roles in order to build up his experience alongside undertaking the relevant accountancy qualifications, including a Finance Team Leader for the Co-op and most recently a Purchase Ledger Clerk at Repton School.
Congratulations are also in order as Daniel has recently passed his AAT Level 2, and is soon due to commence Level 3 – a fantastic achievement and great start to becoming a qualified Accountant!
It's not all work and no play
Daniel has lived in Derby since 1997, and shares his home with his wife Lyndsay and their cat, Oliver. Outside of work he can generally be found pounding the pavements, with his goal for 2021 to partake in his first ever marathon! He's even keen to run the hour-long route into the Derby office once we're all allowed back in! If that all sounds a bit too energetic, you'll be pleased to know that Daniel is also partial to indulging in some down-time with a good book or video games. Furthermore, Daniel also spends one evening a week volunteering at local charity, First Steps ED, where he helps people to understand how mental health & eating disorders can affect their finances.
