A Day in The Life: Linda Zagorskiene, Finance Assistant
Hi, I am Linda from Latvia.
I joined QueryClick in 2018 and have progressed from nobody knows who Linda is to now being called “The Linda”!
My main job at QC is Finance Assistant but I am also very involved in Culture Group event organisation.
Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself?
I’m not usually a fan of heavy metal music… but if I am having a bad day or feeling really upset, I have to listen to Rammstein to help me feel better!
What day-to-day tasks do you complete as a Finance Assistant?
I support the team by:
- Helping with any financial queries they might have,
- Paying for expenses,
- Organising events,
- Preparing financial information for the Head of Finance,
- Plus, lots of other ad hoc jobs!
Are there any finance tools you use that you would recommend to someone in a similar role?
A few years ago, I introduced a new staff expenses system to QueryClick: Certify.
I would strongly recommend that any company which still uses spreadsheets to record staff expenses makes the move to something similar.
Using Certify has made my work so much easier! And I think it’s made the expenses process a lot simpler for my colleagues too.
What are your favourite (and not-so favourite!) parts of your role?
I love socialising so QC’s social events is definitely one of my favourite things. We just had our Christmas party and it was magical. I loved that everyone came together after being remote-first for last two years and had such a good time together.
There’s also never a dull moment in my job – finance is a crucial part of any business and so I am involved with almost every department and team! I have to admit (as sad as it might sound…), I also love spreadsheets! I find it fascinating what spreadsheets can do with data.
But, spreadsheets can also be my least favourite thing! I would love to improve my spreadsheet skills because there are so many things I want to be able to do but not sure how to yet. Luckily, we get 8 hours of personal development time each month at QC, so it’s on my to-do list!
Can you tell us a little more about QC’s Culture Group?
The core role of the Culture Group is to bond teams and colleagues through social activities. It’s more important than ever as we are a remote-first company and so mostly work from home. That means it can be harder to develop strong working relationships with our colleagues.
I joined the group because it needed someone with access to a company credit card for booking things and then I really liked the idea of planning and organising events.
What do you love about being part of Team QC?
I love that everyone I work with at QueryClick is incredibly passionate about their job and the business.
Would you recommend QC as a place to work?
QueryClick is the first company I have worked for who looks after their staff so well. We have amazing training programs and opportunities to grow in the company. And a very friendly team!
