Welcoming Jon Pike to our finance team

7th Apr 2022

As the company continues to grow, we’ve been welcoming a number of new faces in recent months, with our latest addition joining our fantastic finance team.

Jon’s role forms a crucial part of our finance operations, looking after our company’s suppliers. Read on to learn more about his background, experience and new role!

Hi Jon, welcome to the company! How have your first few months been?

Really good thanks. The accounts team have been very helpful and welcoming – treating me to a pub lunch on my first day!  Everyone else at Enborne has been friendly and made me feel part of the team, so very positive all in all.

Tell us a little bit about your background

My work background is in the retail industry. I worked for a number of years as a retail manager for an independent garden centre in the Cotswolds and then decided on a career change within the business, moving into their accounts team. There I studied for my AAT qualifications and worked in the role for 7 years.

Can you tell us a bit about your new role and the team you’ve joined?

My role here is to look after the accounts payable function of the business.  I am responsible for processing any invoices we have received, and ensuring we pay our suppliers in a timely fashion.  My work is based in the main offices at Enborne, and the team I work with includes Suzanne, Sally, Michelle and Jacky.

What are the biggest challenges for you in your new role?

There are industry-specific schemes that I have had to familiarise myself with, that I had not come across before in my previous roles. These include the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), Domestic Reverse Charges (DRC), and Job Retentions.  The team have been really patient with me and are always happy to help with any queries.

What attracted you to your role at S&C Slatter?

I was keen to move away from retail, and into a new industry altogether.  The sports construction industry appealed to me as I enjoy sport outside of work, and I like the family-run aspect to S&C Slatter.  I am very happy to try something new and develop some new skills.

What advice would you give to any organisations planning a new sports construction project?

I’ve yet to go on site to see how the projects are constructed, but I have seen plenty of images of completed projects on our social media.  They all look really smart and professional, so of course I would recommend using Slatters!

Finally, what do you like to do outside of work?

I have 3 daughters, and a lot of my time outside of work is spent with them.  I also enjoy socialising with friends and family, playing football, cooking, and listening to music.


Jon has fast become a member of the finance family and wider company team, welcome!
