Welcome to NETPark Life, a new regular feature that we hope will provide insight into the types of people and businesses you’ll find working at NETPark, as well as what it’s like to work here in Sedgefield, County Durham from the people that know it best!
This week we asked Kromek’s recently appointed Chief Financial Officer Paul Farquhar out NETPark Life questions.
- How long have you worked at Kromek Group Plc and what is a typical day like?
I joined Kromek at the end of October last year, so 5 months. There is no typical day as each day is so different. However, a normal day for me is being on-site at Kromek’s offices on NETPark from around 8am to 6pm. The day typically includes a range of meetings with internal and external stakeholders and investors as we are an AIM listed business, together with the wide variety of responsibilities associated with being a CFO/Finance Director in an SME business.
- What do you like most about your job?
The variety and challenge that goes with being part of a growing and ambitious technology company and in particular a business that has proud North-East roots as a spin-out from Durham University.
- What is the best thing about working at NETPark?
For me it is an easy commute from where I live in Washington, but more importantly I enjoy being part of a like-minded hub of science, technology and engineering organisations all flying the flag for North-East enterprise and innovation.
- What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
Spending time socialising with family and friends, traveling and being a long-suffering supporter of Newcastle United!
