Finance Executive, Jumeirah Restaurants Group
Winner: Stage One Financial Management, August 2018

Beryl joined the hospitality industry 6 years ago when she joined the Jumeirah Group as a Guest Services Executive.  Within a year and a half, she was able to progress in to a finance role, having completed a post-graduation diploma in business administration and finance (PGDBA).

The journey from Guest Services to Finance Assistant and now Finance Executive required perseverance, a passion for numbers and a dedication to learn and grow.   Now working as a Finance Executive, Beryl deals with General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Income Audit, Fixed Assets. 

Beryl says the course has helped her better understand the finance structure and reasons behind the companies’ processes and policies and has helped her with analysing details and knowing the story behind the numbers.   She intends to now study for CIMA and further career progression, extension of knowledge, formal certification for international job opportunities … and possibly someday head a team as Director of Finance.
