Meet Toby Austin

Head Office

I am currently the Financial Planning & Analysis Manager within the Head Office Finance team, having previously worked in a centre as an AD and then a CD. My role involves looking closely at the company’s budget and analysing various performance targets. I have a background in maths and finance, but didn’t ever plan on this career path – I originally joined the company to work with children! Working in a centre was great experience and I got a lot out of both interacting with families and gaining business management skills.

I love my current role – my day-to-day work involves analysis that (hopefully) provides some insight into the company and influences its strategy. Although it’s a Monday-Friday office-based job, every day at work is different. There is a very unique staff culture that makes it a great place to work, and I never find myself watching the clock.
