Finance & H.R. Manager
Louise has worked in finance for over 32 years, which is surprising as she claimed to still be 21 at her last birthday.

Louise’s combined experience in these areas and her hilarious sense of humour have become a real asset to the business.

Viki has a very calm and capable personality that has allowed her to dive straight in to the role and made the rest of the team feel like she’s been here for years already!

Craig’s experience in the construction industry spans over 15 years, many of which were dealing with bathroom and kitchen alterations. Before joining AAUK Craig was a business owner in the flooring industry focused on jobs within the care sector where he mainly worked with disabled clients on a one on one basis.

He is also bringing his fresh eyes and experience to further improve our in-house processes which is something we actively encourage here whenever our team grows. He has a very approachable personality and we are happy to have him on-board.
We are really happy to welcome Anthony to our Able Access UK family and give him his very first job! He came here on work experience a few years ago and then again more recently. Whilst here he was able to see what we did to give people their independence back and decided he wanted to make a difference not just get a job after he successfully completed his three A levels.
“I had a great time working at Able Access UK before due to the people that worked there and what they do to help their customers, they supported me throughout the whole experience. So, when the opportunity arose, i jumped at the offer to work here again… Officially. I can see myself working here for a long time to come… unless i win the lottery of course!”
We hit a really busy period in Autumn 2019 and needed a temporary additional driver and our regular agency knew just who to send us.
Charles is a hard working, conscientious, positive, nothing is too much trouble guy. He immediately got stuck in and both staff and customers loved him and he’d quickly proved himself so we took him on permanently!
Charles has spent the last eight or so years as a HGV mechanic but never got to see his family and wanted a change of career with a better work-life balance so started at the agency in order to try out some new options. We are looking forward to developing Charles’ role within the company over the next few years and seeing where his skills will take him as he certainly has the right attitude!
