Finance Assistant celebrates 20th year with Alpha Rail

Finance Assistant celebrates 20th year with Alpha Rail

As you may have seen in previous articles, Alpha Rail is proud to give recognition to the impressive service milestones achieved by members of the team. Upon reaching 20 years with the company, staff are presented with a gift of their choice as a way to say thank you for the dedication and hard work since joining the team.

Heading into our Accounts Department, we congratulate Kate Allcock on her 20-year anniversary with the company. Kate works as a Finance Assistant for Alpha Rail and is responsible for the general day-to-day accounts, along with preparing and submitting VAT returns and sub-contract accounts.

After leaving her previous position in 1999, Kate was searching for an accounts-based position, and attended various interviews. Initially, she had accepted a role elsewhere but received a call from the directors at the time who asked her to consider the position at Alpha Rail instead. She decided to accept this offer and has been with the company ever since!

When asked about her favourite memory when working at Alpha Rail, Kate recalled the time she went on maternity leave to have her son. Upon her return, she was pleasantly surprised by an array of fantastic gifts following a big collection amongst other staff within the company. This remains her fondest memory to date and is something she will remember for years to come.

Commenting on her achievement, Kate said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed the last 20 years at Alpha Rail, and I am proud to be part of a company that cares so much about its staff. There have been so many recent highlights for us, namely the move into our purpose made factory in Huthwaite. I love working in the new offices, and what makes my job so enjoyable is the people I get to work with.”

To mark her 20th year working with Alpha Rail, Kate was presented with Pandora jewellery.

Finance Director, Mark Sipson, added: “Kate plays a key role in our Accounts department and helps keep everything running smoothly. Alpha Rail is a company built on the belief of everyone helping each other to achieve the common goal of a fantastic end product along with customer service to the highest standard. Taking good care of our staff is a priority and the fact that we have so many long-standing employees with over 20 years’ service under their belts is a testament to this.
