Sarah, Head of Finance, McVitie's Cake Company

I’ve spent a number of years working in finance in FMCG. I graduated from Oxford, reading Economics and Management and started my career in a large FMCG organisation. Whilst there I qualified as a chartered accountant, doing evening and weekend classes, and spent time in a variety of different finance roles. These included UK Finance Manager, Sales Finance Manager roles and Internal Audit. I then went to a food manufacturer to lead finance for the European Sauces business.

After a brief stint in financial control and an organisational takeover, I came to pladis to head up the commercial finance and revenue management team. I have recently relocated to Halifax to head up finance for the cake business unit.

What I love most about working at pladis is the chance to combine my love of brands and food with the challenge of working in finance. We’re encouraged to develop our careers and get a huge amount of support from the business at every step of the way.
