TOM HOLMES - FINANCIAL DIRECTOR

After attending Nottingham Boy's High School and receiving A Levels  in Mathematics, Economics and Physics I studied at Leeds Metropolitan University. Graduating with a 2:1 Bachelor of Arts (B.A) in Economics for business.

I joined Stepping Stones in June 2014. I enjoy working in the family business which I have been a part of since 2000 when we all worked together to start the nursery from the very beginning.

As Finance Director I calculate bills for over 200 children monthly, this requires a knowledge of both of the 'Two Year Early Learning Program' and the 'Three-Four Year Education Grant' schemes, within this role I have day to day dealing with customers developing customer relationships.

I also train the Management team and staff at Stepping Stones in the use of our nursery development and management software, my idea to innovate the nurseries development and billing structures is saving time weekly and is allowing the staff to spend more time aiding the growth and development of the children.

I am extremely outgoing and social. In my spare time I play rugby, cricket and golf for various clubs across Nottinghamshire as well coaching cricket to children ageing from 5 - 16 years of age.
