As some of you may know, here at Carden, our mission is to grow.  To grow our people into industry leaders, to grow our guests into fans and to grow our resort into the best in its class.

With that, we would like to congratulate our wonderful Finance team members Carrie Pinches and Jake Davies on achieving The HOSPA Financial Management Education Programme qualification.

We sat down with Carrie and Jake to discuss why they chose HOSPA and what they enjoyed most about the course.

“I really enjoyed the HOSPA course on a whole and enjoyed learning and developing my skills. I found the first stage ‘Introduction to Account Concepts’  suited me best as it complimented my knowledge I had gained through work based experience and the AAT.

The most challenging stage was ‘Strategic Management Accounting’. This was an area I hadn’t much knowledge in but I’m now pleased this was included as my confidence has grown when implementing this into my day-to-day tasks.” Carrie commented.

Jake discussed the challenges of studying whilst working full-time, “I always enjoy setting challenges for myself, and this HOSPA was no different. Juggling studying alongside work and personal commitments proved challenging but worthwhile. The HOSPA qualification has an industry specific focus and supplements my degree.”
