I have been married to Tanya Lehmann since 2002 and have a son, Thomas, born in 2004 and a daughter, Caitlin, in 2006. My children will be starting school sports very soon and I look forward to the time spent teaching them how to play the sports of their choice.
I began my employment with a position as a casual kitchenhand working for Pizza Hut for 11 years from the mid 80’s. After this I spent time working for the Stamford Hotels Group in the Banquet Department before taking on the role of Duty Manager at a local hotel and the Food and Beverage Manager at the Clare Country Club. After working in the hospitality industry for the almost years I decided to return to school to study for Certificate IV in Financial Services.
This certificate led to acceptance to Flinders University to study for a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) degree. This degree was completed in November 2011 with a graduation ceremony to be held in April 2012. I consistently received distinction level grades for applied accounting assessment tasks such as preparing financial statements, analysing profit and loss balance sheets, the use of the MYOB Accounting Package and creating business activity statements. These practical tasks have prepared me well to fit into the diverse roles required in any office environment.
My attention to detail and aptitude for accounting was developed to a high level during the past six months as Finance and Administration Manager at my current job, and for the three years prior to that in charge of the payroll, statutory payments and finances, including accounts payable and receivable, at the Mount Osmond Golf Club. Over the past few years previous workplaces have given me experience in MYOB, MicroPower (Membership-based accounting package) and Microsoft Office products, especially Word, Excel and Outlook. During this time I assisted the new General Manager of the golf club in his understanding of the finances and the day to day running of the club.
As an employee of the Mount Osmond Golf Club, my teamwork and communication were highly valued. Working in a team of four administrators, including myself and three of whom were new to the club, it was essential to work in an organised manner and communicate clearly and concisely when sharing ongoing tasks. These skills will be valuable in communicating within any team. My ability in these areas was recognised by the General Manager, and I was given the added responsibility of Occupational Health and Safety Officer.
My problem solving and leadership ability have been developed through the range of activities in which I am involved, both in and out of university. As captain of an indoor cricket team, I motivated team members by setting goals for their skill development. As a result we claimed a premiership and three runners-up trophies in a two year period. I also mentor other employees and help them to identify skills and tasks that will enable them to perform well in their duties. These abilities will be well utilised in any accounting role.
My goal is to continue learning and developing my expertise in my future role. Now I have completed the final subjects at university I plan to study and sit for my CA or CPA qualifications. I believe that I would be a perfect fit for continuing success of your business and that this is a role in which I could both grow and play to my strengths.
I believe that my academic background along with my professional experiences provide a solid foundation for any available position. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you in the near future.
