Meet Fierdous, our Finance and Office Administrator
I would describe myself as fun-loving, caring and honest. I am also a mother.
I work in finance and sometimes I even help out with events. I am an all-rounder. Working here is different from my experience in a large law firm. In a small company, I get to talk to people. I like verbal communication. Stand up and speak to people! Otherwise, you are losing out.
I was supposed to learn about how the finance department works from another colleague, however, the way things worked out the person left. When they left I had to learn and figure it out. Adi and I are still figuring and learning about Zero. Working on this changed me — I learnt a lot and spent some time working on this. We are getting it. I am more confident in myself. I ask him (Adi) questions more confidently. I love it!
I used to work in a law firm in the general administration office. I got promoted to finance, I worked myself up. I love finance!
My Husband — we are close and we talk about our work during our ‘us times’. We go for coffee or a walk and talk about things — the kids, work and everything. My kids are also helpful and they talk to me — comfort me when I need. They for there for me. I’m there for them too.
I am a mother who does a lot of things for her family. I am open to people. I share and listen openly to my daughter in law, daughters, my mum and my sisters. We can talk about issues that affect women. Openness brings honesty to your relationships. This is something I see my children teach their children and has impacted the role I play in my family. I have an Open dialogue with nieces and nephews-they come to me. There is a line of course. I am a Peacemaker.
I believe in doing your work, being honest and thanking god for the rewards of your hard work.
During my time at school, I had issues with other girls at school. This was a difficult time for me. Throughout my life — getting married, having children, working here — have grown my confidence. I stand up for myself.
I also try and support my children so they don’t struggle as I did in school. I check in with my family. To help “catch them”.
