Profile - Miriam Moore, Osmosis Group

Miriam Moore is moving on up at Osmosis Group. Promoting from within, Osmosis has made Moore financial controller. Moore was formerly a management accountant at the computer components distributor, having joined in early 1997.

Sold on the three-for-one nature of accountancy – degree-equivalent qualification, professional recognition and a nice little earner – she began her training with a sole practitioner. Strongly believing ‘you make your own opportunities’, ACCA-qualified Moore decided to move out of practice ‘and find somewhere to put down roots’. Chertsey-based St Peter’s Hospital NHS trust proved to be the fertile ground she was looking for.

‘When I joined the NHS, I was sceptical. I knew I wouldn’t stay there forever but, all the same, I was worried about the impact it would have on my career,’ she says. ‘Joining St Peter’s in the year it became a trust, however, turned out to be an excellent move.’ As the trust became self-accountable, I found myself part of a professional and focused team,’ she adds.

After a flourishing five years as financial accountant for the trust, Moore chose to break her routine. ‘Joining Osmosis was a culture shock,’ she admits. ‘Computer component distribution and patient care couldn’t be more different, but once I’d adjusted my focus – a learning process for me – I was still able to apply and develop my skills.’

Already committed to her new role, Moore contributed to a business plan for the creation of Osmosis Ireland. ‘Hard work and commitment pay off both professionally and financially,’ she says. ‘Five months on and the office is a success.’
