My job is both strategic and operational. Strategically I manage the resources of LEA, which includes amongst others, ensuring a high level of technical competencies amongst staff, as well as operational financial resources in terms of planning,
organising and control.
I establish, implement, and maintain the financial management and accounting systems and procedures for accurate recording of all financial business transactions.
