Interview with Angela Stanford Group Finance Director
9 Jan 2023
Please tell me a little bit about yourself
I’ve been fortunate to have a fantastic career in energy recruitment. I started as a CV administrator many years ago and have worked my way up, becoming a management accountant, regional financial controller and now moving to Applica as group finance director. I’ve travelled a great deal and enjoy every single aspect of this industry.
What do you believe sets Applica apart for clients
Applica offers bespoke and tailored solutions for its clients which is crucial in such a diverse market place. This gives a better service to clients ensuring they get the right candidates and skills to successfully deliver their projects.
Why did you choose to work with Applica
My absolute passions are setting up processes to maximise efficiency and developing people to bring out the best in them and their skills . Working with Applica I will be able to do both of these which is ideal for me.
The team here is so enthusiastic, being able to pass on my knowledge to help and develop them is a key thing for me, it’s such a motivating factor.
Moving to Applica as a director will allow me to have a direct input into the development and future of the business which is such a great opportunity.
I’ve already mentioned the team but for me this is so important, everyone is so passionate and supportive.
What is the best part of your role
Having ownership, developing the team and knowing that I’m contributing to the future of the business.
Please tell me something not many people know about you
I’m a real water baby, during lockdown I learnt to scull and sweep row with my local rowing club!
