Tina Hercock - Finance Director

Tina left school at 16 in 1976 and commenced an eight year stint of day release to qualify as an ACCA accountant in 1984. After 23 years in haulage (before the more glamourous title of logistics), and a few years dabbling in self employment, she answered a newspaper advert for an accounting role in a £10m turnover recruitment business in Leicester.

Joining Encore in 2004 was a revelation, from the doom and gloom of logistics to the upbeat energetic environment of recruitment. Tina had no direct staff and produced all the accounts and undertook credit control personally. She is now responsible for a team of 24 people, debtors of £8-10m , weekly payroll of £1m and treasury controlling £9m of working capital funding. Tina has overseen accounting for growth from 4 to 10 branch locations,17 EMS contracts resulting in the current monthly production of 44 P&L’s plus the additional complexity of having a subsidiary company TPC in the Group accounts. Tina was appointed Finance Director to the Board in November 2016 and now also holds the role of Company Secretary.
