One of the senior positions onboard, this position ensures that all monetary functions are properly monitored and maintained by the accounting and finance volunteers, and maintains responsibility for, and provides oversight of, all Finance and Sales Department functions on board.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Finance Director role and particularly the variety that it provided and the flexibility it required. Every day was different and although we weren’t directly interacting with patients, we were very aware that the activities we performed supported the rest of the crew and meant that they could serve, in the ways they had been called.
