Amandeep is certainly ambitious; in 10 years he's progressed from working as a bookie at Coral to Finance Manager of one of the biggest food brands in the world, gaining his ACCA Qualification along the way in 2012.
"I enjoy the continuous challenge at Heinz – you have to be commercially aware and highly technical".
His daily job is challenging. He’s converting strategic vision into budget and forecasting cycle whilst managing the technical side of monthly reporting. "To be effective in my job, I have to think several steps ahead, as well as be technically competent". The ACCA Qualification has provided him with technical knowledge, strategic thinking skills and the opportunity to network – which has bolstered his professional life.
His ultimate goal is to become CFO, "I believe a great leader has self-belief, ownership and is continuously developing, but also has the ability to lead people who may be more intelligent than you".
In his spare time, Amandeep loves playing basketball and golf and is trying to get round to learning the guitar – "it's still wrapped up in my room, I will learn one day!"
