Off to Work - Accounts & Payroll
I initially joined Off to Work whilst completing my A levels, after receiving a recommendation from a fellow student. I wanted to do something exciting and flexible which is exactly what the company had to offer. I continued working casually throughout my accountancy studies and decided to join the office team in July 2011. Having spent 5 years involved with the hospitality industry, the knowledge, experience and friendship I gained was too valuable to part from.
The innovative and progressive approach of the company is definitely an idea I share and want to be part of.
Whilst pursuing his MBA, Usmeet was offered a position in a recruitment company as a payroll assistant, starting his career in the finance department – which is the core of any business.
After finishing his MBA in Business and Management from Herriot Watt University in Scotland, Usmeet went to work for a pharmaceutical company. Now after nearly 5 years in payroll, and having worked with different companies from construction to pharmaceutical to hospitality, Usmeet was delighted to join the Off to Work payroll department and begin his career in hospitality finance.
Since starting in August 2013, Usmeet has been working closely with his colleagues in finance to develop his skills and ensure payroll operates perfectly, day in, day out.
I first joined Off to Work in 2010 as part of the Birmingham casual team, where I worked in a range of exciting and unusual events. After having graduated from university, I joined the office team as Recruitment Assistant where I took responsibility for building and maintaining the large Birmingham staffing pool.
After a year in the Birmingham office I made the move to London as I wanted to widen my knowledge of the industry and Off to Work, and experience everything that the capital has to offer. Having branched into payroll work whilst in Birmingham, it was a natural progression to join the Payroll team in July 2013.
I can't say that I know London well yet, but I've loved my time here so far - a truly leading and constantly moving city! I am very much looking forward to supporting the office team and working closely with our clients.
