Next up on our Chupi Team What I Do series is our wonderful Financial Controller (and Star Baker) Ann!

What is your role?

My role in Chupi is Financial Controller, overseeing and planning all things financial.

How did you get here?

I had worked for years as a bookkeeper, but after being made redundant in 2011, decided to upskill by returning to College and study to be an Accounting Technician. I then joined a bookkeeping agency where one of my first clients was Chupi, who had started designing her gorgeous jewellery.  As her business grew, so did her need for a more full time financial controller, so in later 2016 I became a full time member of the team.

Best bits?

I love the small, loyal and energetic team I am part of, all of whom love the what seems to be a constant supply of chocolate and many of whom are tea addict like myself.

Paying bills is obviously a part of my job, but somehow paying for gold and diamonds is so much nicer.

What family wouldn’t be complete without a dog? We are very lucky in that our Chupi family has Poppy and Rufus as constant work companions.

People or businesses or brands you admire?

I admire anyone who takes the initiative to get started in a new role, to try new ideas and who has the self belief to do so.  In that I admire Chupi greatly, she has these characteristics and has phenomenal energy to drive herself forward.

Top tips for getting into your role?

It may seem obvious but attention to detail is key in any financial role, no detail is too small to be overlooked.

Continual learning as the world of business and finance is constantly changing.

Favourite Chupi piece and why?

I love my Solid Gold Star Sign necklace, as a Libran the scales seem somehow right for a Financial Controller.

For simple elegance and everyday wear I love Solid Gold You Are The Moon Stud Earrings.

My newest piece is the North Star necklace which I adore, although I feel very drawn to the very beautiful Solid Gold You Me & Magic Stud Earrings Ruby…my next purchase?
