Here is what a current member of our finance team has to say about working for Aberlour:
“In Aberlour no two days are the same – but that’s what makes it an exciting place to work. There’s genuine care and passion in the work we are doing and as a Finance & Reporting Analyst you are there to help guide and advise your colleagues on many aspects of the organisation and finance. You’re able to use your skill with numbers and systems to really make a difference in the decision making across various departments and services, which ultimately help young people & families. There is a shared sense of achievement, and when a service or project wins funding or gains accreditation/good grading, it’s a success that’s celebrated by all in the organisation.”
