Accountant – Overland
Zenia is the Accountant for the retail side of Overland. Her role sees her take on a variety of tasks including overseeing the finances of the retail stores, working closely with the Financial Controller in the day-to-day operations of the company, monitoring and forecasting inward and outward cash flows for the company, preparing financial accounts, compliance work and project accounting.
Having originally worked in the finance team of a company specialising in technical equipment Zenia is relishing the move to the retail industry due to it’s fast paced nature and vibrant culture. What’s more, she finds her work much more rewarding due to her passion for the product – Zenia is an absolute shoe fanatic!
Zenia got her first taste of Accounting in her final year of High School and went on to complete a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting and a Graduate Diploma in Finance. Having gained work as an Assistant Accountant she then joined the Overland team in the same capacity before being promoted to her current role.
The opportunity to grow within Overland and be promoted internally is something Zenia is incredibly grateful for. She credits the brand for allowing her to extend herself and put her hand up for more responsibility. She is also appreciative of working in an environment where her colleagues are supportive and approachable. Nurturing and faced paced environments aren’t normally associated with each other but Overland’s ability to balance the two has contributed to its success.
This capacity to grow is highlighted by one of her proudest career achievements to date – qualifying as a Chartered Accountant. Whilst completing the final requirements Zenia found Overland’s supportive environment and the network of experience the Finance team provided was invaluable and a real contributing factor in her success.
