Finance and Supported Internships Administrator

I started working for bemix in March 2019. Initially I was employed as maternity cover for a finance administration role. I am now working across payroll, Supported Internships and Care and Treatment Reviews.

Within the Supported Internship program, I mostly work on Access to Work funding. Each young person in a work placement is accompanied by a work coach to help them develop the skills and knowledge for their role. I apply to the DWP for funding and submit the invoicing for this work. Molly, who came through this programme, was offered a job as business administrator with bemix and we work together on these claims. I am also the administrator for the bursaries and school meal applications for the young people.

The Care and Treatment Reviews are for people with Learning Disabilities and/or autism who are at risk to themselves or others. The aim of these reviews is to reduce the time individuals are in hospital, support people to live in the community and improve the quality of care they receive in hospital. I act as the first point of contact for our Experts by Experience and Supporters, help to organise and allocate the reviews to our team and invoice for this work.

I thoroughly believe in the work we do here at bemix. We have a great team and really push to make a positive difference. I am very much a people person and I love engaging with all of the individuals we work alongside.
