Hi, I’m Sam Aikman, Absolutely Cultured’s Finance Co-ordinator.
I record all the day to day transactions of our charity and keep the accounting software up to date.
I come from a scientific background, working in Laboratory Medicine for the NHS for most of my adult life. I studied in Bristol for an HNC in Biomedical Science whilst training and worked in Hull and York labs. More recently, I studied AAT Accounting levels 2 and 3 at nightclass and changed career as I wanted to try something new. I worked in Barnsley for a short time in a finance role before moving to Absolutely Cultured, so I am very new to the art (and finance) world!
My biggest achievements are having two amazing grown up children. I am immensely proud of my years in the NHS but also of changing career later in life and finding a better work/life balance for me and my family.
One passion I have is for horses and I enjoyed riding as a child, so recently I’ve started having lessons again. I also love swimming and going on walks.
