Sue Whitlam – Senior Manager

After working in finance for many years Sue had a change of direction when she went to work in communications and public relations, experience which she put to good use in her first position at BIADS, in management support.

She then came full circle back into finance once again where she has successfully set up systems to ensure our financial recording and reporting is accurate, as well as setting up the invoicing system for our day centre.  Sue also has the additional responsibility for facilities as well as managing the admin team.

In August 2023 Sue also became BIADS’ Senior Manager. She will carry out this new role alongside her other responsibilities as Finance and Facilities Manager.

It is worth mentioning when Sue applied to work at BIADS her plan was to work less hours, so she started working two days a week.  This has gradually increased to four days as she has become involved in more aspects of the charity.  She also enjoys working with her colleagues, who she says are a great team of people doing a fantastic job in helping people in Barnsley affected by dementia.
