Accounting body AAT has welcomed Fiona Hodkin as regional account manager for the East of England.
The Association of Accounting Technicians has appointed Ms Hodkin from Moulton College, where she held responsibility to help local employers make best use of their apprenticeship levy allocation and build their future talent.
She has extensive experience of the education and food sectors, having also worked as regional account manager for the OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations) exam board and spending nine years as director of field sales for Britvic PLC.
In her new role, Fiona will be supporting both employers and training providers in the East of England to meet development needs in the accounting and finance industry, through delivery of AAT accounting qualifications.
Nick Woodrow, senior regional account manager, AAT said: “Fiona has a long track record of forging successful local links, which improve awareness of education solutions for current and future workers.
“Her knowledge of apprenticeship levy funding will undoubtedly help employers in the East of England understand how the levy can work for them, and how AAT’s high-quality accounting qualifications can give apprentices, trainees and other employees the work-ready skills they need for a long career in finance.”
Fiona Hodkin, regional manager for East of England, AAT said: “There is always high demand for highly-trained finance workers across all industries, and AAT has a proven track record of helping many thousands of people gain the knowledge they need to take their first steps in the field of finance. I look forward to applying my own experience to help AAT qualifications reach more individuals in the East of England, be this through training providers or as distance learners.”
