As we enter a new phase of growth, our team is also going from strength to strength and we’re delighted to welcome both Raphae and Antoinette to the Square Mile team.
Raphae joins us as a Senior Finance Business Partner and brings a wealth of experience.
Having worked in various roles including Group Financial Controller, Raphae has considerable experience working both internationally as well as in the UK, across several industry sectors including automotive, facility management and tech.
After graduating with a First Class honours degree in Maths and Statistics, he then qualified with the ACCA as a Chartered Accountant, and now mentors students who are following a similar path.
Outside of work and in ‘normal life’, Raphae has a flair for languages and enjoys playing sports including football, cricket, tennis, badminton and squash. Being passionate about finance, Raphae also enjoys trading and investing in the stock markets, describing himself as an ambitious investor. Perhaps his motivation is his love for fast cars and luxury holidays!
Raphae is looking forward to getting to know the team and building relationships with clients to help them achieve their goals. He’ll also be helping to shape the company’s Virtual Finance Director services.
Antoinette joins our popular Apprenticeship Programme as a Financial Analyst.
The programme enables Antoinette to able to apply her college studies and learning through practical application and experience.
Antoinette was looking for a dynamic place to work, where she could reach her potential from both a professional and personal perspective and decided that Square Mile was the place to do just that!
Outside of work and study, Antoinette is developing her Spanish skills and has already practiced her love of the language with some other members of our talented multi-lingual team. She also has a love for art and all things creative. Looking ahead, when the world opens up again, there are plans to travel as much as she can and one day she has a dream of travelling around the world.
Antoinette is looking forward to building her confidence and accounting experience and working with the team to help clients run their businesses more efficiently and successfully. There’ll also be plenty of opportunities to apply her creativity. Watch this space!
Our founder, David Gormer welcomed our new members:
“As we enter a new phase of growth, it’s great to welcome both Raphae and Antoinette to the team. They’ll both be helping to develop relationships with our existing and new clients alongside being involved with some exciting projects that we’ll be launching over the coming months.”
Raphae and Antoinette are both looking forward to getting settled into the Square Mile way of life.
Antoinette explains that “With the flexibility that Square Mile allows for my studies, I couldn’t be happier with the decision I have made.”
Whilst Raphae is excited about “The prospect of being able to shape my future career in a progressive, forward thinking firm.”
Square Mile is founded on a strong culture which is at the heart of the company’s success. David has been an advocate of flexible working long before COVID or pandemic were part of our lives and his view on this was recently featured in The Guardian.
