Group Finance Director
Alison is finance director for RTS Group, and oversees the accounts and HR functions of the company, both of which have grown substantially since she joined in 2004.
Her background has always been in finance. She started her working life as a self-employed bookkeeper working with farmers and other small businesses – from bakeries and fish and chip shops, to video production companies and garden centres. One of her first ever holiday jobs was driving around Bristol canvassing for office cleaning contracts – in fact, the firm she worked for still has some of the contracts she won for them!
Alison runs the accounts team – she describes herself as “detailed” – and although most of the time they all work away quietly on their figures, they do try to have a laugh along the way. When she’s not at work she spends time with her children and in the garden.
