Under the spotlight this time round was Liam, we ask him a few questions so you get to know him a little bit more. Liam has worked with the team here at Ampower for a long time, and it has been great to see him grow and develop within his role. Check out what Liam’s favourite thing to do in his pastime.
Can you give us a two sentence bio about yourself?
My name is Liam, I was born in Milton Keynes, but moved away to Bedford for a large part of my life, so it’s nice to be back working in Milton Keynes.
I enjoy spending a lot of my time with friends and also like going to the gym (before COVID19 got in the way).
What do you do at Ampower on a daily basis?
I am the financial controller within Ampower; I pursue and retain debt within the company. I am also the first point of contact for the customer and broker financial queries; an additional part of my role is to assist in all financial instances.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The best part of my job is when I close a case which has acquired large debt, they often take a while to complete and give me a real sense of accomplishment. Knowing I have had a positive impact on the company gives me a great sense of pride as well as relief. 😂
What advice were you given in your career that has stuck with you?
Everybody is replaceable, so make sure when you are not in, you’re missed.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
All my life I planned to go into the paratrooper regiment in the armed forces, I stuck with this idea until I was about 16, then I realised I didn’t want to waste all my youth on it, so I decided to work within the energy sector. I’m so happy to be where I am now, so it was a good choice!
How do you relax when you’re not at work
When I’m not working, I often enjoy going to see my family, a large number of them live up Leicester. I also like playing my PS4 at home with friends.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
When I was 16, I moved away from my parents home, this has given me great independence, and I feel really proud of that.
