Humans of Hive - Dana Cable

“I live just outside Southampton, not too far from the office, with my Husband and Son who has just turned 21; our Daughter, 27, has now bought a house of her own. Life is rather hectic. I work full-time, so weekends are always very busy.  I love socialising, cooking and enjoy walking. The South Coast is a fab area to live with beautiful coastal walks, the New Forest and gorgeous scenery.

“It was an interesting journey to get to Hive. After I left school I worked in various roles within Local Government, which is where I completed my HND in Business Studies & AAT qualification, and how I met my Husband! However, I decided it wasn’t for me long-term and made the leap into the private sector, initially in construction, where I completed my CIMA studies. From construction I moved to the aerospace industry, then to a large group of funeral directors, during which time I had both our children. Before finally joining Hive, I worked  at a Southampton University Biotech spin out and most recently Financial Controller for a fine chemical distributor.”

“I joined Hive at end of 2013 as Financial Controller, initially working in a team of just six. Over the past nine years I have experienced the vast change at Hive, especially in recent years.

“I love my role at Hive, that’s why I’m still here!  It has been amazing to witness the incredible expansion and meet and work with new colleagues around the globe. No two days are the same. We are fortunate to work in a fabulous location, with views of open countryside. It’s a great industry to work in, and I feel proud to be part of such an incredible organisation making a difference to our planet. I’m thankful I just happened to stumble across Hive all those years ago!”
