Anna Pay

Finance Manager

About Anna

I lead the management accounts and payroll team; we have the overall responsibility for the following:

  • Cash and treasury requirements
  • HMRC liabilities
  • Group monthly management accounting
  • Monthly management information and business reporting
  • Payroll & commission calculations and processing
  • Overheads & credit cards

My days are filled with reconciliations, managing internal requests for and ensuring as a team we are meeting all internal and regulatory deadlines.

I've worked in finance for over 10 years and been with ARM for four. I originally joined as a Finance Analyst, moving into the Finance Manager role after one year. This allowed me to redo and streamline most of the finance processes.

I also gained my full CIMA qualification during this time.

I love working at ARM because...

… we are given great opportunities to flourish and develop.

What's it like to work with me?

I’m a straight shooter and feel that being open and honest is important. Continuous development and improvement is always is at the forefront of my mind.

My team describes me as fun, supportive and helpful:

"Anna is very driven and that comes across in the way that she manages our team.  She is the excel queen so is always coming up with innovative ways to improve the way we do things and meet the needs of the business, allowing us to improve efficiency and freeing up time to add value wherever possible.  Anna is always happy to help with any questions and queries we may have whilst also allowing us the freedom to take control of our roles and responsibilities once we have grasped them." 

Three things you didn't know about me

I wanted to be a vet when I grew up (totally different to being an accountant!) Outside of work I love cooking and trying new recipies.
