Hi, my name’s Simon and I’m the senior accountant at PHP. I'm also a big fan of Tottenham Football Club!
After leaving college in 1992, I started work at Dorset County Council, before moving on to Poole Borough Council and then Weymouth and Portland Borough Council.
I joined PHP in March 2008, as I was bored with walking to work and decided that an hour’s drive from Weymouth would be much more fun.
So what do I do? Well, I’m the lead accountant on PHP’s accounts and look after the finances for the Housing Management and Corporate Teams, making sure they spend their allocated budgets wisely! I’m also involved with monitoring the Housing Revenue Accounts (HRA), although my colleague Scott is the lead accountant for this area. The finance team coordinates the payment of invoices for PHP and Katie, whom I manage, deals with this on a daily basis.
In short I’m here to provide financial support, advice, training and assistance to the staff, managers and Board of PHP in all matters relating to the running of PHP and the management of the HRA accounts.
