Staff Spotlight - Reuben Keating

Staff Spotlight Reuben Keating Assistant Accountant

Reuben is an assistant accountant in our finance department. He is responsible for various tasks including reporting on financial KPIs and moving hundreds of thousands of pounds of funds into our clients’ bank accounts each day. We spoke to Reuben to find out more about what he does and the best parts of his job.

“I’m part of the financial team responsible for making sure all of the cash that we advance to our clients is correct. This includes using our digital systems to reconcile funds and backing up our customer facing team, ensuring they have everything they need to support clients with the best possible service and funding options.

“I get the honour of the pushing the “go” button on all of our client payments. Working with the Assistant Relationship Management team, I double check the allocations and advances before sending payments out. I’m proud to say that we have a long track record of getting our payments out before 9am.

“The best thing about working at Optimum Finance is how they support my career development. I’m currently studying for a CIMA qualification and have recently completed the third level. Having come to Optimum Finance after completing my degree in accounting and finance at Oxford Brooks, the sponsorship allows me to improve my ability and certification while getting real world experience.”

Outside of the office, Reuben is a keen runner, being part of a club and running at least once a day, if not more. He’s currently organising the team’s participation in the Bristol 10K to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
