Ken Burnett

Accounts/Payroll Officer

I’m Ken, I joined the HomeCareDirect Accounts Team in Feb 2014 with no previous experience in the care industry, so it has been a steep learning curve, but everyone’s been very friendly and supportive – just as you would expect from anyone involved in this line of business!

A bit late coming to the accounting discipline, I only qualified as an AAT Technician in 2011 after an enforced career move in 2007, but the 6 or 7 years’ experience I have gained so far have been really enjoyable and I regret not having made the switch sooner.

Away from work I have a very understanding wife – well she’d have to be after over 30 years together – 2 grown sons and a dog. We are very proud to have seen both our sons graduate in recent years and our dog ‘Poppy’ – a rascally Cairn terrier – has now taken centre of attention at home.

If I ever get any spare time my main hobby is drawing and painting and Poppy ensures we keep active by taking us on long walks in all weathers.
